An assessment of 100WebSpace

We, at farcampus.com, have chosen '100WebSpace' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. This is why we imagine that this brief evaluation of '100WebSpace' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that '100WebSpace' currently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '100WebSpace' in short:

Shared Hosting Services

The first detail we, at farcampus.com, have noted is the budget prices of the shared website hosting services provided by '100WebSpace'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans delivered by '100WebSpace' are driven by a custom designed, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an individual pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have huge problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting distributors are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must construct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the webspace hosting price very low (because lots of clients share the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot host your website. 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 plan and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you save money that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each web page hosting account provided by '100WebSpace' comes with an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. '100WebSpace' provides shared webspace hosting plans in a number of different regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, practically the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting packages provided '100WebSpace' are very well appointed and come at a very good price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why '100WebSpace' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a standard shared webspace hosting plan via a hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web page hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not offer complete root-level access (we, at farcampus.com, count this as a little drawback), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting plans. This hints that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a VPS web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a Virtual Private Server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the VPSs can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by '100WebSpace' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to farcampus.com, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from '100WebSpace' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' anticipations, '100WebSpace' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of website. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from farcampus.com, deem that all dedicated server solutions delivered by '100WebSpace' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server provides free invoicing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at farcampus.com, think that this is a minor weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (farcampus.com's) prediction is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software program futile. Our (farcampus.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
