An evaluation of OWS Hosting

We, at galerie-marchande.ch, have selected 'OWS Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we expect that this concise review of 'OWS Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'OWS Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'OWS Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The first detail we, at galerie-marchande.ch, have perceived is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting solutions offered by 'OWS Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting plans supplied by 'OWS Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an individual group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have immense complications with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web space hosting suppliers are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to set up their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by an actual clustered website hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price very low (since many customers are hosted on the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered site hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small site hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still new. Each web space hosting package provided by 'OWS Hosting' comes with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'OWS Hosting' distributes shared webspace hosting packages in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole planet is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting packages delivered 'OWS Hosting' are quite well furnished and are available at an attractive price (starting from $3.33 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a VPS web server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'OWS Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a conventional shared web hosting package via a CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a fee-free site builder and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server account is many times bigger than that of a shared package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not come with complete root access (we, at galerie-marchande.ch, think of this as a little drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same web space hosting CP GUI as the shared hosting packages. This hints that a well-known graphical environment is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a private virtual hosting server can give them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the VPS servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'OWS Hosting' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In galerie-marchande.ch's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'OWS Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' expectations, 'OWS Hosting' delivers an array of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and steady work of any type of web site. In 'OWS Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from galerie-marchande.ch, believe that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'OWS Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'OWS Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at galerie-marchande.ch, consider this a minor defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (galerie-marchande.ch's) prognosis is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (galerie-marchande.ch's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'OWS Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Cyclop package.
