A survey of HostingBox

We, at kfz-takev.at, have picked 'HostingBox' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we deem that this short assessment of 'HostingBox' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'HostingBox' currently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'HostingBox' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at kfz-takev.at, have observed is the low prices of the shared web page hosting accounts supplied by 'HostingBox'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting packages offered by 'HostingBox' are driven by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an independent host of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based site hosting providers are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine cloud site hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the price amazingly low (since multiple clients use the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny web page hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you spare money that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still new. Every web space hosting plan provided by 'HostingBox' includes an online site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'HostingBox' distributes shared hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, approximately the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting solution at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'HostingBox' are very well stocked and come at an excellent price (starting from $5.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'HostingBox' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a normal shared hosting account through a hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a fee-free site builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated plans do not include root privileges (we, at kfz-takev.at, consider this a little weak point), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same site hosting CP user interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This indicates that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all clients who do not feel confident enough to administer a VPS, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can furnish them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'HostingBox' can be branded as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to kfz-takev.at, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'HostingBox' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'HostingBox' delivers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of website. According to 'HostingBox', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from kfz-takev.at, think that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'HostingBox' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server offers free-of-charge billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'HostingBox' are all unmanaged. We, at kfz-takev.at, consider this a small problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $35.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (kfz-takev.at's) forecast is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (kfz-takev.at's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'HostingBox' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
