An evaluation of Gigabit Network Solutions

We, at urbanclubbers.com, have picked 'Gigabit Network Solutions' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this brief assessment of 'Gigabit Network Solutions' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Gigabit Network Solutions' presently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Gigabit Network Solutions' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at urbanclubbers.com, have detected is the low prices of the shared website hosting plans offered by 'Gigabit Network Solutions'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages offered by 'Gigabit Network Solutions' are powered by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a separate stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have huge complications with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based website hosting vendors cannot add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to create their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (since multiple users use the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered website hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web hosting account that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you save capital that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still novel. Each and every web page hosting plan offered by 'Gigabit Network Solutions' ships with an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Gigabit Network Solutions' delivers shared web page hosting packages in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting solution at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'Gigabit Network Solutions' are very well stocked and come at a very cheap price (starting from $4.93 for the 1 IP Address package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Gigabit Network Solutions' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a normal shared web site hosting plan through a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared to a shared webspace hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not ship with full root privileges (we, at urbanclubbers.com, deem this a tiny weak point), but the advantage is that they are administered via the very same website hosting CP GUI as the shared website hosting packages. This goes to say that a well-known GUI is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, but at the same time need more power and features than a virtual private web hosting server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Gigabit Network Solutions' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to urbanclubbers.com, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'Gigabit Network Solutions' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' anticipations, 'Gigabit Network Solutions' delivers a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the web servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Gigabit Network Solutions', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from urbanclubbers.com, deem that all dedicated server specs provided by 'Gigabit Network Solutions' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server offers free invoicing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Gigabit Network Solutions' are all unmanaged. We, at urbanclubbers.com, think of this as a tiny problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes various extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several website hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (urbanclubbers.com's) prediction is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP client pointless. Our (urbanclubbers.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Gigabit Network Solutions' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $75.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
