A survey of HD Web Hosting

We, at html5stuff.com, have chosen 'HD Web Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we expect that this brief review of 'HD Web Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'HD Web Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'HD Web Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at html5stuff.com, have noticed is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting packages provided by 'HD Web 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 web hosting packages furnished by 'HD Web Hosting' are powered by a custom created, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an individual pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have mammoth problems with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting suppliers cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the site hosting price very low (because plenty of users are hosted on the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each web hosting plan offered by 'HD Web Hosting' boasts an online site building tool and over 40 popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'HD Web Hosting' delivers shared web space hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, practically the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'HD Web Hosting' are very well stocked and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $5.00 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may appear hard to handle. That's probably why 'HD Web Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to administering a normal shared plan through a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a fee-free site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not arrive with full root-level access (we, at html5stuff.com, think of this as a tiny negative point), but the good point is that they are administered through the same Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual server, yet need more power and reserves than a VPS web server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'HD Web Hosting' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Budget Semi Dedicated package.

Dedicated Servers

According to html5stuff.com, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'HD Web Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'HD Web Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of website. In 'HD Web Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from html5stuff.com, think that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'HD Web Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server offers free billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'HD Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at html5stuff.com, think of this as a tiny minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (html5stuff.com's) prognosis is that the great drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly make the use of any FTP software program futile. Our (html5stuff.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'HD Web Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $140.00 for the Xeon E5 v4 10c package.
