A survey of Free Hostia

We, at dfruitmoz.com, have chosen 'Free Hostia' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this brief review of 'Free Hostia' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Free Hostia' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Free Hostia' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at dfruitmoz.com, have noted is the affordable prices of the shared website hosting packages supplied by 'Free Hostia'. 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 hosting packages supplied by 'Free Hostia' are driven by a custom created, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an individual bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have mammoth difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting firms are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to design their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the web site hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers are hosted on the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web page hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web space hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Thus, you economize cash that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each web site hosting account supplied by 'Free Hostia' comprises an online website builder and over forty widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Free Hostia' furnishes shared website hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, almost the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Free Hostia' are really well stocked and are available at a very modest price (starting from $0.00 for the Chocolate package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear tough to handle. That's probably why 'Free Hostia' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared web hosting package through a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not ship with root privileges (we, at dfruitmoz.com, think that this is a minor downside), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This implies that a well-known GUI is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual private web server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a Virtual Private Server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Free Hostia' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $29.95 for the Boabab package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In dfruitmoz.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Free Hostia' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' requirements, 'Free Hostia' offers a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'Free Hostia's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from dfruitmoz.com, believe that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Free Hostia' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server ships with free-of-charge billing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Free Hostia' are all unmanaged. We, at dfruitmoz.com, think of this as a minor inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (dfruitmoz.com's) forecast is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (dfruitmoz.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Free Hostia' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $139.95 for the Arctic plan.
