An assessment of 100WebSpace

We, at abs-location.ch, have picked '100WebSpace' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this succinct assessment of '100WebSpace' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that '100WebSpace' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at abs-location.ch, have spotted is the low-cost prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts delivered by '100WebSpace'. 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 website hosting plans supplied by '100WebSpace' are driven by a custom built, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an independent set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting providers are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (since multiple clients are hosted on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny site hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Hence, you economize capital that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Each web site hosting plan delivered by '100WebSpace' offers an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. '100WebSpace' distributes shared web hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, practically the entire World is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions provided '100WebSpace' are quite well equipped and are available at a budget price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a regular shared web hosting plan through a webspace hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not arrive with full root-level access (we, at abs-location.ch, think of this as a small weak point), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This goes to say that a known graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, yet demand more power and system resources than a virtual web hosting server can confer to them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $55.00 for the Standard plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to abs-location.ch, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from '100WebSpace' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' needs, '100WebSpace' offers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the servers include: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from abs-location.ch, consider that all dedicated server specifications offered by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every hosting server comes with free-of-cost billing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at abs-location.ch, consider this a slight weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (abs-location.ch's) forecast is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our (abs-location.ch's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
