An assessment of 100WebSpace

We, at energyofthespirit.com, have chosen '100WebSpace' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we believe that this concise evaluation of '100WebSpace' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, since the mere fact is that '100WebSpace' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at energyofthespirit.com, have detected is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting plans delivered by '100WebSpace'. 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 supplied by '100WebSpace' are powered by an in-house designed, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an individual pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting companies cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must devise their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web hosting system. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the website hosting price very low (because multiple users are hosted on one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a small webspace hosting package that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web site expands. In this way, you economize capital that you can spend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Each web space hosting plan supplied by '100WebSpace' comes with an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design services. '100WebSpace' furnishes shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, practically the entire World is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished '100WebSpace' are really well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual web server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared web hosting package through a web page hosting Control Panel 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 provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not ship with complete root access (we, at energyofthespirit.com, think that this is a little drawback), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same CP user interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical interface is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual private hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can deliver. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which host the virtual web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '100WebSpace' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Servers

In energyofthespirit.com's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the guys from '100WebSpace' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' requirements, '100WebSpace' supplies an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from energyofthespirit.com, believe that all dedicated server specifications furnished by '100WebSpace' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each web server provides free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at energyofthespirit.com, regard this as a little defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade includes several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (energyofthespirit.com's) prognosis is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (energyofthespirit.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
