A survey of Hola Host

We, at nexttonothing.net, have picked 'Hola Host' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. This is why we deem that this concise assessment of 'Hola Host' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Hola Host' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Hola Host' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at nexttonothing.net, have detected is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting services provided by 'Hola Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts delivered by 'Hola Host' are powered by an in-house invented, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting firms are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price very low (since numerous customers use the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web space hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you spare money that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still novel. Every web hosting account provided by 'Hola Host' ships with an online site builder and over 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Hola Host' supplies shared webspace hosting accounts in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, almost the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'Hola Host' are really well stocked and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $5.24 for the Starter package).

Dedicated Servers

In nexttonothing.net's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Hola Host' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' anticipations, 'Hola Host' provides an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the web servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any type of site. In 'Hola Host's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from nexttonothing.net, deem that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Hola Host' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server ships with free invoice transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Hola Host' are all unmanaged. We, at nexttonothing.net, think that this is a tiny weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (nexttonothing.net's) prediction is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (nexttonothing.net's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Hola Host' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c package.
