An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at organic-church.org, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we presume that this succinct evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually 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 brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at organic-church.org, have seen is the low prices of the shared website hosting packages offered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom built, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an autonomous bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have mammoth predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based 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 need to devise their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud site hosting platform. With a shared account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (because multiple clients share the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web site hosting system, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you actually demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small web page hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you spare money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each web page hosting account provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' comprises an online web site builder and over 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' furnishes shared web site hosting solutions in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, almost the whole Earth is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem hard to administer. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared account through a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting packages. When compared with a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at organic-church.org, count this as a slight negative point), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This means that a familiar GUI is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to manage a virtual web server, yet need more power and features than a virtual private hosting server can offer. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be defined as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Servers

In organic-church.org's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'Exclusive Hosting' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from organic-church.org, believe that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each hosting server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at organic-church.org, regard this as a slight defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (organic-church.org's) prognosis is that the magnificent point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our (organic-church.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the A1 HDD package.
