An assessment of Webgear Hosting

We, at melitafc.com, have chosen 'Webgear Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Hence we expect that this succinct evaluation of 'Webgear Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'Webgear Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Webgear Hosting' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at melitafc.com, have noticed is the inexpensive prices of the shared hosting accounts furnished by 'Webgear Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting plans supplied by 'Webgear Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an independent bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have immense problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting suppliers are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the webspace hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web space hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really require, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny website hosting package that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you economize cash that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each site hosting package offered by 'Webgear Hosting' offers an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Webgear Hosting' delivers shared web site hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, almost the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting solution at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Webgear Hosting' are very well furnished and come at an excellent price (starting from €5.95 for the Small package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Webgear Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a conventional shared web site hosting plan through a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting plan such as a free website building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When compared with a shared package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not offer full root privileges (we, at melitafc.com, deem this a slight problem), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting accounts. This signifies that a well-known graphical environment is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a VPS server, yet need more power and resources than a virtual server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Webgear Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In melitafc.com's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web shops with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Webgear Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'Webgear Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of website. According to 'Webgear Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from melitafc.com, consider that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Webgear Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Webgear Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at melitafc.com, count this as a tiny defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of €37.40 EUR. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (melitafc.com's) prediction is that the impressive point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (melitafc.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Webgear Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from €63.37 for the Atom 1 package.
