An evaluation of Exclusive Hosting

We, at de.ehkn.net, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. This is why we expect that this brief review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at de.ehkn.net, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting plans offered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting packages provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a different pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have enormous predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting distributors cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine cloud hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the price really low (since plenty of clients utilize one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small site hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each website hosting package delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' boasts an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' offers shared hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well furnished and come at a very good price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual web server may appear problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to handling a normal shared site hosting package via a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times larger than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not offer root privileges (we, at de.ehkn.net, regard this as a tiny disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same web hosting CP user interface as the shared plans. This indicates that a recognizable graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual web server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a VPS web server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Servers

In de.ehkn.net's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from de.ehkn.net, deem that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each web server includes free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at de.ehkn.net, think that this is a small downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (de.ehkn.net's) forecast is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our (de.ehkn.net's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
