An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at echo4u.com, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Hence we expect that this short assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at echo4u.com, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting plans provided 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 thing here is that the webspace hosting packages furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an individual host of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have huge problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the web space hosting price really low (since numerous customers utilize one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really require, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end site hosting package that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your site grows. So, you save cash that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each and every website hosting plan supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' includes an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' furnishes shared webspace hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting service at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting plans provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well furnished and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a VPS web server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to handling a normal shared web space hosting account via a web site hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not offer full server root access (we, at echo4u.com, count this as a slight problem), but the plus is that they are managed via the same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared webspace hosting packages. This goes to say that a well-known GUI is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and reserves than a VPS web server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to echo4u.com, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies an assortment of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from echo4u.com, consider that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each server offers free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at echo4u.com, regard this as a slight downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of webspace hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (echo4u.com's) forecast is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly make the use of any FTP client futile. Our (echo4u.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the A1 HDD package.
