A review of VB Tech Hosting

We, at fbc.usl.edu.sl, have chosen 'VB Tech Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we deem that this short evaluation of 'VB Tech Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'VB Tech Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing practically the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'VB Tech Hosting' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at fbc.usl.edu.sl, have perceived is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting solutions supplied by 'VB Tech 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 plans offered by 'VB Tech Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an independent pack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel webspace hosting firms cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud hosting platform. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the site hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of clients share one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you save cash that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Each and every web page hosting plan offered by 'VB Tech Hosting' offers an online site building tool and over forty popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'VB Tech Hosting' distributes shared website hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, nearly the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'VB Tech Hosting' are quite well stocked and are available at a very low price (beginning from $3.75 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem difficult to administer. That's probably why 'VB Tech Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a normal shared site hosting account via a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a fee-free web site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include root privileges (we, at fbc.usl.edu.sl, deem this a minor negative point), but the plus is that they are administered through the same hosting CP tool as the shared web space hosting packages. This hints that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, yet require more power and features than a virtual web server can confer to them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual hosting server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'VB Tech Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Medium plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In fbc.usl.edu.sl's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'VB Tech Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' requirements, 'VB Tech Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady work of any type of web site. According to 'VB Tech Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from fbc.usl.edu.sl, think that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'VB Tech Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server ships with free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'VB Tech Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at fbc.usl.edu.sl, deem this a minor weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $35.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (fbc.usl.edu.sl's) forecast is that the great point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our (fbc.usl.edu.sl's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'VB Tech Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $275.00 for the Xeon 4 package.
