A review of de Hosting

We, at, have selected 'de Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we consider that this brief evaluation of 'de Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'de Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'de Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have detected is the modest prices of the shared website hosting accounts provided by 'de Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting accounts provided by 'de Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a different host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting distributors are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (because numerous clients utilize one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end web page hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic site hosting plan that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each web space hosting plan delivered by 'de Hosting' sports an online web site building tool and over forty popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'de Hosting' distributes shared web hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, almost the whole planet is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting services offered 'de Hosting' are quite well equipped and come at a very good price (starting from A$4.36 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may seem hard to handle. That's probably why 'de Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared web site hosting package through a web space hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not arrive with root privileges (we, at, regard this as a little downside), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared hosting plans. This suggests that a user-friendly GUI is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and system resources than a private virtual server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'de Hosting' can be defined as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from A$28.67 for the Mercury package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'de Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' demands, 'de Hosting' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the web servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of web site. According to 'de Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'de Hosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each web server arrives with free-of-charge billing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'de Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to A$50.84 AUD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'de Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from A$99.07 for the Mont Blanc plan.
