A survey of artichosts

We, at drlutaya.com, have picked 'artichosts' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this succinct review of 'artichosts' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'artichosts' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing approximately the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'artichosts' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at drlutaya.com, have seen is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting solutions supplied by 'artichosts'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting plans provided by 'artichosts' are powered by an in-house invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an independent stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have enormous difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting corporations are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must build their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered site hosting platform. With a shared package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the hosting price amazingly low (since many users share the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web page hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you save money that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting account delivered by 'artichosts' arrives with an online website builder and over 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'artichosts' offers shared web space hosting solutions in several different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire Globe is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'artichosts' are really well stocked and come at an attractive price (starting from $5.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS may seem troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'artichosts' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared web page hosting package through a hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared web hosting plan such as a free web site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting accounts. When matched against a shared site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not come with root access (we, at drlutaya.com, think of this as a little downside), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same website hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting plans. This indicates that a well-known GUI is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual server can give them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'artichosts' can be classified as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In drlutaya.com's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'artichosts' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' needs, 'artichosts' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of web site. In 'artichosts's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from drlutaya.com, think that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'artichosts' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server arrives with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'artichosts' are all unmanaged. We, at drlutaya.com, think of this as a slight weak point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (drlutaya.com's) forecast is that the magnificent point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (drlutaya.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'artichosts' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
