An evaluation of Sheephostingbay

We, at xnoll.com, have chosen 'Sheephostingbay' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Hence we suppose that this short assessment of 'Sheephostingbay' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, since the mere fact is that 'Sheephostingbay' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Sheephostingbay' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at xnoll.com, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared web page hosting services delivered by 'Sheephostingbay'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts delivered by 'Sheephostingbay' are powered by a custom developed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a different host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have enormous problems with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting companies are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud web space hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the hosting price amazingly low (because many customers utilize the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered site hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small site hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting account furnished by 'Sheephostingbay' comprises an online website builder and more than 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Sheephostingbay' offers shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Sheephostingbay' are really well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from $3.07 for the Startup package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Sheephostingbay' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared web hosting plan through a Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not offer root access (we, at xnoll.com, think that this is a little drawback), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web page hosting plans. This signifies that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Sheephostingbay' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Pro plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In xnoll.com's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Sheephostingbay' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' expectations, 'Sheephostingbay' delivers a collection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'Sheephostingbay', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from xnoll.com, believe that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Sheephostingbay' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every server arrives with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Sheephostingbay' are all unmanaged. We, at xnoll.com, deem this a slight downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (xnoll.com's) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our (xnoll.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Sheephostingbay' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
