A review of CPC Hosting

We, at kiterclub.com, have chosen 'CPC Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we deem that this brief review of 'CPC Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'CPC Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'CPC Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at kiterclub.com, have observed is the low prices of the shared web page hosting services provided by 'CPC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages offered by 'CPC Hosting' are powered by a custom built, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an independent stack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have big complications with, because cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting suppliers are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price very low (because numerous customers utilize the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, refraining from a situation where you pay for a powerful web hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web space hosting account 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 start with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. That way, you save money that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still novel. Every website hosting account furnished by 'CPC Hosting' ships with an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'CPC Hosting' offers shared web site hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans supplied 'CPC Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a good price (starting from $4.17 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS hosting server may seem difficult to administer. That's probably why 'CPC Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a standard shared web space hosting account through a site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not ship with full root-level access (we, at kiterclub.com, regard this as a minor downside), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web server, yet demand more power and features than a private virtual server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'CPC Hosting' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In kiterclub.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful website hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'CPC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its users' requirements, 'CPC Hosting' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of website. In 'CPC Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from kiterclub.com, consider that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'CPC Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server includes free invoice transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'CPC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at kiterclub.com, think of this as a little drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (kiterclub.com's) prediction is that the splendid point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our (kiterclub.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'CPC Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
