An evaluation of aBitHosting

We, at, have chosen 'aBitHosting' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we expect that this brief assessment of 'aBitHosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'aBitHosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'aBitHosting' in short:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have noticed is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting services provided by 'aBitHosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting packages offered by 'aBitHosting' are powered by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting firms are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered web site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price really low (because multiple customers use the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny site hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you save cash that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting package supplied by 'aBitHosting' ships with an online website building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'aBitHosting' provides shared website hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting packages provided 'aBitHosting' are very well furnished and come at a low-cost price (beginning from $5.83 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a private virtual hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'aBitHosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a normal shared web hosting package via a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting account such as a free-of-cost website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not offer full root privileges (we, at, deem this a small minus), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same web site hosting CP interface as the shared web page hosting plans. This signifies that a well-known GUI is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a private virtual server, yet require more power and features than a VPS web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'aBitHosting' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Galaxy package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'aBitHosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'aBitHosting' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the web servers boast: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any sort of site. In 'aBitHosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans provided by 'aBitHosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server ships with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'aBitHosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a little inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web page hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'aBitHosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $205.00 for the Xeon 4 package.
