An evaluation of Electro-Host

We, at horseychick.co.uk, have selected 'Electro-Host' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we think that this concise review of 'Electro-Host' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Electro-Host' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Electro-Host' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The first thing we, at horseychick.co.uk, have seen is the budget prices of the shared website hosting accounts supplied by 'Electro-Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts provided by 'Electro-Host' are powered by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered site hosting system. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the website hosting price very low (because lots of users are hosted on the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic hosting package that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you economize funds that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting account offered by 'Electro-Host' contains an online site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Electro-Host' distributes shared website hosting plans in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, approximately the entire World is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting service at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Electro-Host' are very well appointed and come at a low-cost price (beginning from £3.99 for the Starter package).

Dedicated Servers

In horseychick.co.uk's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'Electro-Host' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its users' demands, 'Electro-Host' offers a number of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Electro-Host', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from horseychick.co.uk, think that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'Electro-Host' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every server ships with free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Electro-Host' are all unmanaged. We, at horseychick.co.uk, think of this as a small negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of £30.99 GBP. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (horseychick.co.uk's) prediction is that the superb point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our (horseychick.co.uk's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Electro-Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from £65.99 for the Atom 1 plan.
