A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at barratthall.com, have picked 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we imagine that this succinct assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at barratthall.com, have perceived is the cut-rate prices of the shared website hosting packages furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting plans delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an autonomous bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have considerable predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting providers are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to design their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (since many clients are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web page hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your online presence expands. In this way, you economize capital that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting package supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' comprises an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers shared hosting packages in several different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole Earth is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well furnished and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a standard shared hosting plan via a web page hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When compared with a shared plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not ship with root-level access (we, at barratthall.com, consider this a tiny negative point), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same web page hosting CP interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This hints that a familiar GUI is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS server, yet demand more power and system resources than a VPS server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In barratthall.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from barratthall.com, deem that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at barratthall.com, think that this is a small inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (barratthall.com's) prognosis is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (barratthall.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
