A survey of Green Data Hosting
We, at raggeduniversity.com, have chosen 'Green Data Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we anticipate that this succinct assessment of 'Green Data Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'Green Data Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing approximately the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Green Data Hosting' in a few words:
Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions
The first thing we, at raggeduniversity.com, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting solutions furnished by 'Green Data Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans furnished by 'Green Data Hosting' are powered by an in-house invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have mammoth complications with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting corporations are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to make their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web site hosting price very low (since many clients utilize the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web site hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you actually need, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end web space hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. In this way, you save capital that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting plan delivered by 'Green Data Hosting' offers an online site building tool and over forty popular script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Green Data Hosting' furnishes shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire World is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast web site hosting service at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'Green Data Hosting' are quite well equipped and come at an attractive price (starting from £3.33 for the Economy plan).
Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers
To people with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Green Data Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared web site hosting account via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting packages. When compared with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not come with complete root access (we, at raggeduniversity.com, count this as a small problem), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting CP interface as the shared hosting packages. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual web server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Green Data Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from £16.93 for the Semi-dedicated L plan.
In raggeduniversity.com's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Green Data Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' anticipations, 'Green Data Hosting' delivers an assortment of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any type of website. In 'Green Data Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from raggeduniversity.com, deem that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Green Data Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Green Data Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at raggeduniversity.com, regard this as a slight drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to £27.72 GBP. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers various extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (raggeduniversity.com's) prognosis is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (raggeduniversity.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Green Data Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from £101.64 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
