An evaluation of Free Hostia

We, at diversglobalpharmacy.com, have chosen 'Free Hostia' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Hence we imagine that this brief evaluation of 'Free Hostia' is probably going to be very useful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Free Hostia' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Free Hostia' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at diversglobalpharmacy.com, have seen is the budget prices of the shared web space hosting solutions delivered by 'Free Hostia'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages offered by 'Free Hostia' are driven by an in-house built, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a separate bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have enormous complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting providers cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered website hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the website hosting price very low (because multiple users share one and the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny hosting plan that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your website grows. That way, you spare cash that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still new. Every website hosting plan delivered by 'Free Hostia' comes with an online website builder and over forty popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Free Hostia' delivers shared web page hosting services in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the whole planet is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting services furnished 'Free Hostia' are very well appointed and are available at a very attractive price (starting from $0.00 for the Chocolate package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS web server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Free Hostia' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared package through a web site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared website hosting package such as a free website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not ship with complete server root access (we, at diversglobalpharmacy.com, consider this a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same web hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared plans. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a virtual web server can provide them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Free Hostia' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $29.95 for the Boabab plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In diversglobalpharmacy.com's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'Free Hostia' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its users' needs, 'Free Hostia' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the web servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable performance of any type of site. According to 'Free Hostia', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from diversglobalpharmacy.com, believe that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Free Hostia' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every web server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Free Hostia' are all unmanaged. We, at diversglobalpharmacy.com, consider this a little drawback, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (diversglobalpharmacy.com's) prediction is that the remarkable point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our (diversglobalpharmacy.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Free Hostia' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $139.95 for the Arctic package.
