An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we imagine that this succinct assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have detected is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting plans supplied by 'Exclusive 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 site hosting plans provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a different group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have great complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting distributors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to construct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web space hosting price very low (because multiple users utilize the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered website hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web hosting account that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you spare cash that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Each and every web hosting account offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' ships with an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies shared website hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole World is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a very low price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared site hosting plan via a hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting account such as a fee-free website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not come with complete root access (we, at, deem this a little drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared accounts. This signifies that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual private web hosting server can confer to them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge billing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a tiny drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
