A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at secure-time.com, have picked 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we deem that this short review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at secure-time.com, have observed is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting accounts provided 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 news here is that the webspace hosting accounts offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by a custom devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting firms are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared website hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the price really low (since lots of customers utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really require, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web site hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you save funds that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still new. Each web space hosting package furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' comprises an online website building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' offers shared website hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, practically the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting solution at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a very affordable price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a normal shared web site hosting plan via a site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a fee-free web site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting packages. When compared with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include root-level access (we, at secure-time.com, think of this as a minor inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared accounts. This suggests that a known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a VPS, yet require more power and resources than a private virtual web hosting server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In secure-time.com's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' requirements, 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies a selection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from secure-time.com, believe that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every web server provides free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at secure-time.com, consider this a small weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (secure-time.com's) forecast is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our (secure-time.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
