A survey of Simple-WebHost

We, at, have selected 'Simple-WebHost' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Hence we suppose that this brief evaluation of 'Simple-WebHost' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Simple-WebHost' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing almost the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Simple-WebHost' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared site hosting packages supplied by 'Simple-WebHost'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting plans supplied by 'Simple-WebHost' are driven by a custom developed, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a separate bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have enormous difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered web hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the web site hosting price really low (since plenty of clients share one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your web site expands. So, you save money that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each and every site hosting plan furnished by 'Simple-WebHost' contains an online website builder and more than forty popular script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Simple-WebHost' delivers shared webspace hosting plans in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole planet is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Simple-WebHost' are really well furnished and are available at an excellent price (starting from $3.17 for the Starter 2 plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a virtual private web server may appear hard to manage. That's probably why 'Simple-WebHost' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a conventional shared website hosting plan via a website hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not come with complete root-level access (we, at, count this as a tiny defect), but the good point is that they are managed through the same site hosting CP user interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Simple-WebHost' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Simple-WebHost' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' demands, 'Simple-WebHost' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of site. According to 'Simple-WebHost', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Simple-WebHost' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every web server comes with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Simple-WebHost' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Simple-WebHost' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
