An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at ebay.treadeverywhere.com, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Therefore we deem that this brief review of 'NTC Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at ebay.treadeverywhere.com, have noted is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting packages delivered by 'NTC 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 furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an individual stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting corporations are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered website hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (since multiple clients utilize the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web page hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting package provided by 'NTC Hosting' offers an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared web hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable site hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'NTC Hosting' are really well equipped and come at a very modest price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared package through a web hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with a shared hosting account, 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 pattern too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not arrive with full root privileges (we, at ebay.treadeverywhere.com, deem this a tiny weak point), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This indicates that a known graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can furnish them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In ebay.treadeverywhere.com's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' anticipations, 'NTC Hosting' offers a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the web servers ship with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from ebay.treadeverywhere.com, consider that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every server ships with free-of-charge invoicing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at ebay.treadeverywhere.com, regard this as a minor inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ebay.treadeverywhere.com's) prognosis is that the remarkable point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (ebay.treadeverywhere.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
