A survey of webgeardefault

We, at efco.com.mt, have selected 'webgeardefault' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we consider that this concise evaluation of 'webgeardefault' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'webgeardefault' currently offers domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'webgeardefault' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at efco.com.mt, have spotted is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting services furnished by 'webgeardefault'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages provided by 'webgeardefault' are powered by a custom built, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an individual bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting companies cannot add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared site hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (because numerous customers are located on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web space hosting package that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. That way, you spare capital that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every website hosting plan provided by 'webgeardefault' arrives with an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'webgeardefault' distributes shared web site hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions provided 'webgeardefault' are very well appointed and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from €5.80 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's probably why 'webgeardefault' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States data center facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a typical shared web hosting account via a site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a fee-free site builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared to a shared web 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 pattern as well. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not ship with root-level access (we, at efco.com.mt, consider this a little disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same web page hosting CP interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This goes to say that a well-known GUI is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a private virtual server can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'webgeardefault' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from €47.19 for the Semi Pro package.

Dedicated Servers

According to efco.com.mt, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'webgeardefault' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' demands, 'webgeardefault' delivers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'webgeardefault's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from efco.com.mt, deem that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'webgeardefault' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-charge invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers provided by 'webgeardefault' are all unmanaged. We, at efco.com.mt, regard this as a minor minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €41.20 EUR. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (efco.com.mt's) forecast is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (efco.com.mt's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'webgeardefault' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from €151.06 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
