An evaluation of Universal-Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Universal-Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. This is why we think that this succinct evaluation of 'Universal-Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Universal-Hosting' currently 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 Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Universal-Hosting' in short:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web site hosting plans supplied by 'Universal-Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting accounts provided by 'Universal-Hosting' are driven by a custom created, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have enormous problems with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting corporations are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud website hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the website hosting price very low (because lots of clients are located on the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web space hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you economize capital that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Each and every site hosting plan offered by 'Universal-Hosting' sports an online site building tool and over forty popular script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Universal-Hosting' supplies shared hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the entire World is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting service at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans offered 'Universal-Hosting' are really well appointed and are available at a budget price (starting from $3.17 for the Entry plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Universal-Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to managing a regular shared webspace hosting plan through a CP tool. They have all the features of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not come with full root access (we, at, deem this a slight drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared accounts. This suggests that a known graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS web server, yet require more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Universal-Hosting' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Mercury package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Universal-Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, 'Universal-Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Universal-Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Universal-Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every server provides free invoice transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Universal-Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of website hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Universal-Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v3 plan.
