A survey of Exclusive Hosting

We, at franciscodm.com, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we presume that this brief evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at franciscodm.com, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. 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 hosting accounts offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an independent host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have great difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting distributors are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the hosting price amazingly low (since numerous users are located on one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you economize money that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each web site hosting package offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' boasts an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' provides shared web page hosting packages in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a stable and fast web hosting solution at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans offered 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well equipped and are available at a very affordable price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS may seem difficult to administer. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a normal shared web hosting account via a CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not offer complete server root access (we, at franciscodm.com, consider this a small weak point), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web page hosting CP tool as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This hints that a well-known graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS, yet demand more power and supplies than a virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In franciscodm.com's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' demands, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated servers have: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from franciscodm.com, consider that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each server offers free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at franciscodm.com, count this as a minor minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides various supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (franciscodm.com's) prediction is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (franciscodm.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
