A survey of VIP Internet Hosting

We, at 1extreme.net, have selected 'VIP Internet Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we consider that this short assessment of 'VIP Internet Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'VIP Internet Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'VIP Internet Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at 1extreme.net, have noticed is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting packages offered by 'VIP Internet Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting accounts offered by 'VIP Internet Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a different stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting companies are unable to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered hosting system. With a shared hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price very low (since many customers utilize one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web space hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Every web space hosting package delivered by 'VIP Internet Hosting' boasts an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'VIP Internet Hosting' distributes shared web space hosting packages in several different regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, practically the entire World is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting plans provided 'VIP Internet Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a very modest price (starting from $2.75 for the Standard package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'VIP Internet Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a normal shared webspace hosting package through a web space hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared packages. When matched against a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not include complete server root access (we, at 1extreme.net, consider this a slight downside), but the good point is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'VIP Internet Hosting' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In 1extreme.net's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'VIP Internet Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' demands, 'VIP Internet Hosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of website. In 'VIP Internet Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from 1extreme.net, believe that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'VIP Internet Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'VIP Internet Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at 1extreme.net, regard this as a tiny inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (1extreme.net's) prediction is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (1extreme.net's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'VIP Internet Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $75.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
