administered by 'reseller'

A review of reseller

We, at, have selected 'reseller' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. This is why we expect that this concise evaluation of 'reseller' is perchance going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'reseller' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'reseller' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have discerned is the budget prices of the shared website hosting packages furnished by 'reseller'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages provided by 'reseller' are powered by an in-house devised, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an independent bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have enormous predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to concoct their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the web space hosting price very low (since many users are hosted on one and the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web page hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny site hosting account that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting account furnished by 'reseller' sports an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'reseller' supplies shared hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable site hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'reseller' are quite well furnished and come at a very affordable price (beginning from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'reseller' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a normal shared web hosting account through a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared packages. When compared to a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not come with full server root privileges (we, at, think that this is a minor minus), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web site hosting CP user interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical environment is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, yet require more power and features than a private virtual server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'reseller' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'reseller' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' needs, 'reseller' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of site. According to 'reseller', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'reseller' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every web server arrives with free invoicing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'reseller' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'reseller' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
