An assessment of Exon Hosting

We, at activa-sierraleone.com, have selected 'Exon Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we deem that this concise evaluation of 'Exon Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Exon Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exon Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at activa-sierraleone.com, have perceived is the low prices of the shared web space hosting services offered by 'Exon Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'Exon Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have big predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting providers cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to build their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud hosting system. With a shared web space hosting account, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the web site hosting price really low (since numerous customers utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a powerful web page hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each web page hosting package provided by 'Exon Hosting' comes with an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Exon Hosting' furnishes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, virtually the entire planet is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Exon Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a very reasonable price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Exon Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a typical shared hosting package via a web hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated package is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not arrive with root access (we, at activa-sierraleone.com, think of this as a little negative point), but the good point is that they are administered via the same website hosting Control Panel tool as the shared hosting accounts. This means that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a VPS, yet are in need of more power and resources than a VPS web server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Exon Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to activa-sierraleone.com, large sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Exon Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' needs, 'Exon Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Exon Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from activa-sierraleone.com, think that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Exon Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Exon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at activa-sierraleone.com, deem this a slight disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (activa-sierraleone.com's) prediction is that the great point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our (activa-sierraleone.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Exon Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $75.00 for the Atom 2 plan.
