A survey of Exclusive Hosting

We, at oakscrossfit.com, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we expect that this short evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at oakscrossfit.com, have detected is the cut-rate prices of the shared site hosting packages furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an autonomous group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have huge complications with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared plan, each client pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the website hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers share the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Every site hosting plan delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' comprises an online website building tool and over 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' distributes shared webspace hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, nearly the entire planet is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at an affordable price (starting from $0.00 for the Domain Manager package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual server may appear complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared webspace hosting package through a website hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting plan such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not arrive with complete root access (we, at oakscrossfit.com, deem this a tiny weak point), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same Control Panel interface as the shared hosting plans. This hints that a known graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, yet demand more power and reserves than a virtual private hosting server can give them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In oakscrossfit.com's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers need a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the web servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of website. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from oakscrossfit.com, consider that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each web server offers free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at oakscrossfit.com, count this as a minor weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (oakscrossfit.com's) prediction is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (oakscrossfit.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
