An assessment of AVISANT HOSTING

We, at snipershock.com, have selected 'AVISANT HOSTING' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Hence we suppose that this short evaluation of 'AVISANT HOSTING' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'AVISANT HOSTING' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'AVISANT HOSTING' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at snipershock.com, have noted is the affordable prices of the shared web page hosting accounts furnished by 'AVISANT HOSTING'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages delivered by 'AVISANT HOSTING' are driven by an in-house devised, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel webspace hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to build their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered web page hosting system. With a shared account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the web site hosting price amazingly low (because multiple users utilize one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web page hosting plan delivered by 'AVISANT HOSTING' offers an online site building tool and over forty popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'AVISANT HOSTING' offers shared web site hosting plans in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting service at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'AVISANT HOSTING' are very well furnished and come at a low-cost price (beginning from $3.95 for the Avisant Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual server may appear troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'AVISANT HOSTING' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to managing a standard shared site hosting package via a web hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not offer complete root-level access (we, at snipershock.com, think that this is a minor drawback), but the plus is that they are administered via the same CP tool as the shared accounts. This indicates that a familiar GUI is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'AVISANT HOSTING' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In snipershock.com's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'AVISANT HOSTING' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' requirements, 'AVISANT HOSTING' supplies an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. In 'AVISANT HOSTING's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from snipershock.com, consider that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'AVISANT HOSTING' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server ships with free billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers offered by 'AVISANT HOSTING' are all unmanaged. We, at snipershock.com, count this as a small weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $36.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (snipershock.com's) prognosis is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (snipershock.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'AVISANT HOSTING' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
