An assessment of Exon Hosting

We, at corvus-gh.com, have selected 'Exon Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we suppose that this short review of 'Exon Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Exon Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exon Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at corvus-gh.com, have detected is the inexpensive prices of the shared web site hosting solutions supplied by 'Exon Hosting'. 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 page hosting plans provided by 'Exon Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an autonomous set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have big troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting distributors cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered website hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the webspace hosting price very low (because multiple users share the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web page hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your site grows. In this way, you save money that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still novel. Each web hosting plan provided by 'Exon Hosting' arrives with an online web site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Exon Hosting' furnishes shared webspace hosting services in several different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Exon Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at a very modest price (beginning from $3.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear complicated to administer. That's probably why 'Exon Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a conventional shared web site hosting package through a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a fee-free web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not offer server root access (we, at corvus-gh.com, consider this a little problem), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This indicates that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a VPS web server, but at the same time require more power and features than a virtual web server can deliver. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exon Hosting' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In corvus-gh.com's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'Exon Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' needs, 'Exon Hosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of site. In 'Exon Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from corvus-gh.com, deem that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Exon Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge billing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Exon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at corvus-gh.com, regard this as a tiny disadvantage, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (corvus-gh.com's) forecast is that the great point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia CP will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (corvus-gh.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Exon Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
