A survey of Free Hostia

We, at, have chosen 'Free Hostia' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we consider that this concise assessment of 'Free Hostia' is perhaps going to be very useful 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 World, since the simple fact is that 'Free Hostia' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Free Hostia' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the low-cost prices of the shared web space hosting solutions delivered by 'Free Hostia'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans delivered by 'Free Hostia' are powered by a custom devised, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting suppliers are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered web site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the hosting price really low (since many clients are located on one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered webspace hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web page hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you save funds that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still brand new. Every web hosting account supplied by 'Free Hostia' arrives with an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Free Hostia' supplies shared web hosting services in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, approximately the entire World is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting solution at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Free Hostia' are very well stocked and come at an attractive price (beginning from $0.00 for the Chocolate package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual private web server may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Free Hostia' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a typical shared web space hosting account through a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not offer full root-level access (we, at, regard this as a tiny weak point), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical environment is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual web server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a virtual private web hosting server can give them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Free Hostia' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $29.95 for the Boabab plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'Free Hostia' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' requirements, 'Free Hostia' provides a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any sort of web site. According to 'Free Hostia', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'Free Hostia' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server comes with free invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Free Hostia' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Free Hostia' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $139.95 for the Arctic package.
