An evaluation of AmtecHost

We, at bubblester.com, have chosen 'AmtecHost' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we anticipate that this succinct evaluation of 'AmtecHost' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'AmtecHost' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'AmtecHost' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at bubblester.com, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared web page hosting services supplied by 'AmtecHost'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans provided by 'AmtecHost' are driven by an in-house designed, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a different bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered website hosting system. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price really low (since multiple clients use the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you actually require, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web space hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you spare cash that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each and every hosting package furnished by 'AmtecHost' arrives with an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'AmtecHost' furnishes shared hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire World is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts provided 'AmtecHost' are really well furnished and are available at a very attractive price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual web hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'AmtecHost' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a regular shared web site hosting plan via a web hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-cost site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web page hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not include root access (we, at bubblester.com, think that this is a slight inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed through the same site hosting CP GUI as the shared hosting plans. This suggests that a well-known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'AmtecHost' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $40.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In bubblester.com's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'AmtecHost' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its users' requirements, 'AmtecHost' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of site. According to 'AmtecHost', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from bubblester.com, consider that all dedicated server plans offered by 'AmtecHost' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'AmtecHost' are all unmanaged. We, at bubblester.com, regard this as a small inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (bubblester.com's) prediction is that the splendid point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our (bubblester.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'AmtecHost' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $99.00 for the Atom 1 package.
