An assessment of OSPRO Hosting

We, at 8contact.com, have chosen 'OSPRO Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this succinct assessment of 'OSPRO Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'OSPRO Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'OSPRO Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The first thing we, at 8contact.com, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared site hosting packages supplied by 'OSPRO Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages supplied by 'OSPRO Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have huge complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting companies are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an actual clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of clients share the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you actually demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web space hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Thus, you economize funds that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting plan provided by 'OSPRO Hosting' comes with an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'OSPRO Hosting' distributes shared web site hosting services in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing 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. Hence, virtually the whole World is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web hosting service at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'OSPRO Hosting' are very well equipped and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $9.99 for the Business plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual hosting server may seem difficult to manage. That's probably why 'OSPRO Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to administering a conventional shared hosting plan through a Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting plan such as a fee-free site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not include complete server root access (we, at 8contact.com, regard this as a slight negative point), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared hosting accounts. This means that a familiar graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a VPS web server, yet are in need of 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 resources of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'OSPRO Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to 8contact.com, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'OSPRO Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' anticipations, 'OSPRO Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the servers have: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of site. According to 'OSPRO Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from 8contact.com, consider that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'OSPRO Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server offers free billing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'OSPRO Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at 8contact.com, count this as a small drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (8contact.com's) prediction is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia CP will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (8contact.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'OSPRO Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
