An evaluation of Websites

We, at, have chosen 'Websites' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. This is why we suppose that this succinct evaluation of 'Websites' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Websites' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Websites' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting packages offered by 'Websites'. 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 plans offered by 'Websites' are powered by a custom devised, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a different pack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting providers are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to make their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price really low (because many clients use one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end web site hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you economize capital that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every web hosting package furnished by 'Websites' contains an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Websites' offers shared website hosting plans in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire planet is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Websites' are quite well furnished and are available at a good price (beginning from €2.98 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Websites' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared web site hosting package through a web space hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer root privileges (we, at, deem this a slight minus), but the plus is that they are administered via the same hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical environment is available to all clients who are not confident enough to handle a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Websites' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Websites' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' demands, 'Websites' delivers an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'Websites's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Websites' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server provides free invoicing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Websites' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €32.56 EUR. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the amazing point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Websites' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from €119.40 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
