An evaluation of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we believe that this brief evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared site hosting plans furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting packages provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an autonomous stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based webspace hosting vendors cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the hosting price very low (because lots of users utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web page hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you spare capital that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Every hosting account provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' includes an online website building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' furnishes shared hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a normal shared webspace hosting account through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting accounts. When matched against a shared plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not offer full root-level access (we, at, count this as a tiny weak point), but the plus is that they are managed via the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting accounts. This implies that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a VPS server, yet need more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can provide them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private web hosting 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 offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every server ships with free-of-cost invoicing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a small downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia CP will probably make the use of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
