An evaluation of WebCenter Hosting

We, at, have selected 'WebCenter Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. This is why we expect that this short assessment of 'WebCenter Hosting' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'WebCenter Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'WebCenter Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the inexpensive prices of the shared site hosting solutions provided by 'WebCenter Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans offered by 'WebCenter Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an autonomous pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting corporations are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must build their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the website hosting price amazingly low (since multiple customers use the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web site hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you spare cash that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Each web hosting package provided by 'WebCenter Hosting' comprises an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'WebCenter Hosting' delivers shared webspace hosting services in a number of different countries across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, almost the whole planet is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting packages delivered 'WebCenter Hosting' are quite well furnished and come at a very good price (starting from $6.25 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a VPS hosting server may seem tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'WebCenter Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared site hosting package through a web space hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting packages. When matched against a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not come with root access (we, at, count this as a slight problem), but the good point is that they are administered through the same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared packages. This means that a familiar GUI is accessible by all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a virtual server can confer to them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'WebCenter Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $40.00 for the Manager package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'WebCenter Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' needs, 'WebCenter Hosting' offers a collection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of site. In 'WebCenter Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'WebCenter Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each server provides free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers provided by 'WebCenter Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a minor disadvantage, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $36.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'WebCenter Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $45.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
