A survey of Webgear Hosting

We, at norchem.com.mt, have chosen 'Webgear Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we consider that this brief evaluation of 'Webgear Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'Webgear Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Webgear Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at norchem.com.mt, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting solutions provided by 'Webgear Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans provided by 'Webgear Hosting' are powered by a custom designed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a different pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have huge problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based hosting providers cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered website hosting platform. With a shared plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus keeping the price really low (because many users use one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you spare capital that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still new. Each and every hosting package supplied by 'Webgear Hosting' sports an online site builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Webgear Hosting' furnishes shared web site hosting accounts in several different countries across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'Webgear Hosting' are really well appointed and are available at a very affordable price (starting from €5.95 for the Small package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Webgear Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a typical shared hosting account through a webspace hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not offer full server root privileges (we, at norchem.com.mt, think that this is a little disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web space hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to handle a VPS server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Webgear Hosting' can be categorized as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In norchem.com.mt's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Webgear Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' demands, 'Webgear Hosting' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'Webgear Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from norchem.com.mt, consider that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'Webgear Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server ships with free-of-cost billing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Webgear Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at norchem.com.mt, think that this is a minor problem, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €37.40 EUR. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes various extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web page hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (norchem.com.mt's) prediction is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (norchem.com.mt's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Webgear Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from €63.37 for the Atom 1 plan.
