An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at maximfood.com, have picked 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Therefore we expect that this short review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at maximfood.com, have observed is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting solutions offered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting packages offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have enormous predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting vendors are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered website hosting system. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the site hosting price really low (since many customers utilize one and the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web page hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you economize funds that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Every hosting plan furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' arrives with an online website builder and more than forty popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' provides shared web space hosting services in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well appointed and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual server may appear problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared site hosting package through a Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-cost website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting packages. When compared to a shared hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not ship with full server root access (we, at maximfood.com, consider this a slight negative point), but the good point is that they are administered via the same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared website hosting plans. This indicates that a user-friendly GUI is accessible by all users who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual server, but at the same time require more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can offer. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be branded as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to maximfood.com, big sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the guys from 'Exclusive Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from maximfood.com, deem that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server offers free billing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at maximfood.com, count this as a small downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (maximfood.com's) prognosis is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our (maximfood.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
