An assessment of Hostomedia

We, at, have chosen 'Hostomedia' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we consider that this short evaluation of 'Hostomedia' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Hostomedia' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Hostomedia' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have detected is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting plans provided by 'Hostomedia'. 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 offered by 'Hostomedia' are powered by an in-house invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a separate host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting corporations cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to design their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered web hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web space hosting price very low (since lots of clients utilize the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small web page hosting plan that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. So, you spare capital that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every website hosting package offered by 'Hostomedia' sports an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Hostomedia' furnishes shared web site hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting service at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Hostomedia' are really well equipped and come at a very low price (starting from $2.75 for the Standard package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Hostomedia' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared package via a hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a fee-free website builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated plan is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not come with full root-level access (we, at, deem this a slight drawback), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web site hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared accounts. This implies that a well-known GUI is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a virtual private web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Hostomedia' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Hostomedia' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' demands, 'Hostomedia' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any type of website. According to 'Hostomedia', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Hostomedia' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server ships with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Hostomedia' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little disadvantage, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides various supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Hostomedia' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
