A survey of Free Hostia

We, at elitelearnersacademy.com, have chosen 'Free Hostia' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this concise review of 'Free Hostia' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Free Hostia' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Free Hostia' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at elitelearnersacademy.com, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting plans provided by 'Free Hostia'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages supplied by 'Free Hostia' are driven by a custom developed, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a different bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have enormous troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price really low (because a lot of customers are located on the same web server). In a few words, 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 indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small webspace hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your online presence expands. Thus, you economize money that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each and every website hosting account furnished by 'Free Hostia' comprises an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Free Hostia' distributes shared website hosting plans in several different regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Free Hostia' are really well appointed and come at a very low price (beginning from $0.00 for the Chocolate package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private web server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Free Hostia' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a standard shared webspace hosting plan through a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not arrive with root access (we, at elitelearnersacademy.com, think that this is a little problem), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same web site hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can offer. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Free Hostia' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $29.95 for the Boabab plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to elitelearnersacademy.com, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Free Hostia' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' requirements, 'Free Hostia' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the web servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of website. In 'Free Hostia's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from elitelearnersacademy.com, consider that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Free Hostia' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server offers free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'Free Hostia' are all unmanaged. We, at elitelearnersacademy.com, regard this as a little weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (elitelearnersacademy.com's) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (elitelearnersacademy.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Free Hostia' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $139.95 for the Arctic package.
