A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at ekomtrading.com, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. This is why we imagine that this short evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at ekomtrading.com, have perceived is the modest prices of the shared hosting services offered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting plans delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have enormous troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting firms are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to make their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the website hosting price very low (because a lot of customers utilize the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, averting a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end website hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. In this way, you economize cash that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still novel. Every webspace hosting package delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' sports an online web site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' offers shared website hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the whole World is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a good price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared account through a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not include full server root access (we, at ekomtrading.com, think that this is a minor drawback), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This suggests that a known GUI is accessible by all users who are not confident enough to administer a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a VPS web hosting server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Servers

According to ekomtrading.com, big web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' demands, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of web site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from ekomtrading.com, consider that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every web server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at ekomtrading.com, think of this as a small defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ekomtrading.com's) forecast is that the superb point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (ekomtrading.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
