An evaluation of webgeardefault

We, at pavilion.com.mt, have chosen 'webgeardefault' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we suppose that this short review of 'webgeardefault' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'webgeardefault' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering nearly the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'webgeardefault' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at pavilion.com.mt, have observed is the budget prices of the shared website hosting accounts provided by 'webgeardefault'. 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 webspace hosting packages supplied by 'webgeardefault' are driven by an in-house invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an autonomous host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have mammoth problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting distributors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web page hosting system. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the web space hosting price really low (because a lot of customers utilize the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot accommodate your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Thus, you save money that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting package provided by 'webgeardefault' contains an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'webgeardefault' distributes shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'webgeardefault' are very well stocked and come at a very good price (starting from €5.80 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may seem tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'webgeardefault' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a typical shared web page hosting package through a webspace hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When matched against a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not offer complete root-level access (we, at pavilion.com.mt, think that this is a tiny weakness), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same web site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web page hosting plans. This indicates that a known graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, yet need more power and system resources than a Virtual Private Server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'webgeardefault' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €47.19 for the Semi Pro package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In pavilion.com.mt's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'webgeardefault' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' anticipations, 'webgeardefault' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of web site. According to 'webgeardefault', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from pavilion.com.mt, deem that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'webgeardefault' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'webgeardefault' are all unmanaged. We, at pavilion.com.mt, think that this is a minor problem, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of €41.20 EUR. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (pavilion.com.mt's) forecast is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our (pavilion.com.mt's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'webgeardefault' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from €151.06 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
