A survey of I'mHosting

We, at rnl-logistics.com, have chosen 'I'mHosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. Hence we expect that this concise review of 'I'mHosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'I'mHosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'I'mHosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at rnl-logistics.com, have noted is the low prices of the shared web hosting plans provided by 'I'mHosting'. 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 space hosting packages provided by 'I'mHosting' are powered by an in-house invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an individual group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have enormous troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting corporations are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the web site hosting price really low (since lots of users use the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, averting a situation where you pay for a powerful web page hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny web site hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you economize capital that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting package delivered by 'I'mHosting' ships with an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'I'mHosting' furnishes shared website hosting solutions in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European data centers - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans delivered 'I'mHosting' are quite well furnished and are available at a good price (beginning from $5.67 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a private virtual server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why 'I'mHosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a regular shared site hosting package via a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not come with full server root privileges (we, at rnl-logistics.com, regard this as a minor downside), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel tool as the shared hosting accounts. This goes to say that a known graphical environment is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual private hosting server, yet need more power and resources than a private virtual web server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'I'mHosting' can be categorized as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In rnl-logistics.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'I'mHosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' needs, 'I'mHosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'I'mHosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from rnl-logistics.com, deem that all dedicated server packages provided by 'I'mHosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server offers free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers provided by 'I'mHosting' are all unmanaged. We, at rnl-logistics.com, regard this as a small inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (rnl-logistics.com's) prediction is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP client futile. Our (rnl-logistics.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'I'mHosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
