A review of VB Tech Hosting

We, at arcsle.com, have chosen 'VB Tech Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we imagine that this concise review of 'VB Tech Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'VB Tech Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'VB Tech Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at arcsle.com, have noticed is the modest prices of the shared site hosting plans furnished by 'VB Tech Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts offered by 'VB Tech Hosting' are powered by a custom developed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting distributors are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to concoct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the web space hosting price really low (because lots of customers utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud website hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you spare capital that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Every site hosting package delivered by 'VB Tech Hosting' arrives with an online web site building tool and over 40 popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'VB Tech Hosting' delivers shared web page hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, almost the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'VB Tech Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a very modest price (beginning from $4.67 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may seem problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'VB Tech Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared hosting account via a site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not arrive with full root access (we, at arcsle.com, deem this a little weakness), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same CP tool as the shared website hosting packages. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a Virtual Private Server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'VB Tech Hosting' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Medium package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In arcsle.com's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'VB Tech Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' demands, 'VB Tech Hosting' provides a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'VB Tech Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from arcsle.com, deem that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'VB Tech Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each web server offers free invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'VB Tech Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at arcsle.com, think that this is a minor defect, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $35.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of webspace hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (arcsle.com's) prediction is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (arcsle.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'VB Tech Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $45.00 for the Earth package.
