A review of 151HOSTING

We, at readysize.com, have chosen '151HOSTING' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Therefore we suppose that this brief assessment of '151HOSTING' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that '151HOSTING' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '151HOSTING' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at readysize.com, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting plans delivered by '151HOSTING'. 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 website hosting packages furnished by '151HOSTING' are powered by a custom developed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a different pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have colossal complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to make their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the web space hosting price very low (because multiple clients utilize the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web site hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a basic hosting package that cannot accommodate your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you save funds that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each and every web hosting plan offered by '151HOSTING' comprises an online web site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. '151HOSTING' distributes shared website hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, almost the entire Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting solution at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans delivered '151HOSTING' are really well equipped and come at a good price (starting from $7.50 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may appear difficult to manage. That's perhaps why '151HOSTING' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a standard shared web site hosting plan through a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting package such as a free site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at readysize.com, count this as a tiny minus), but the plus is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting CP interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This suggests that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, yet demand more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '151HOSTING' can be labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In readysize.com's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It appears that the folks from '151HOSTING' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' requirements, '151HOSTING' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of web site. In '151HOSTING's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from readysize.com, consider that all dedicated server packages furnished by '151HOSTING' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server ships with free-of-charge billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by '151HOSTING' are all unmanaged. We, at readysize.com, count this as a minor weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $36.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (readysize.com's) forecast is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (readysize.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '151HOSTING' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Salamander package.
