An evaluation of 151HOSTING

We, at 151host.com, have selected '151HOSTING' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we believe that this short assessment of '151HOSTING' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, because the mere truth is that '151HOSTING' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '151HOSTING' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at 151host.com, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting services provided by '151HOSTING'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages delivered by '151HOSTING' are powered by an in-house invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a different group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have immense complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the website hosting price very low (because plenty of clients are located on the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web space hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end web space hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Hence, you economize money that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Every hosting account supplied by '151HOSTING' includes an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. '151HOSTING' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, nearly the entire Earth is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting solution at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts furnished '151HOSTING' are very well equipped and come at a budget price (beginning from $7.50 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why '151HOSTING' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared web page hosting account via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not offer complete root-level access (we, at 151host.com, deem this a slight defect), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a virtual server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a VPS server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '151HOSTING' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe plan.

Dedicated Servers

In 151host.com's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from '151HOSTING' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' demands, '151HOSTING' supplies an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the web servers include: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of site. In '151HOSTING's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from 151host.com, think that all dedicated server specifications supplied by '151HOSTING' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server offers free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by '151HOSTING' are all unmanaged. We, at 151host.com, consider this a small disadvantage, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $36.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (151host.com's) forecast is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software useless. Our (151host.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by '151HOSTING' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Salamander plan.
