An evaluation of OSPRO Hosting

We, at gomastodon.com, have picked 'OSPRO Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this brief review of 'OSPRO Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'OSPRO Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering practically the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'OSPRO Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at gomastodon.com, have noted is the affordable prices of the shared website hosting packages offered by 'OSPRO Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts supplied by 'OSPRO Hosting' are powered by an in-house invented, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting firms are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the site hosting price very low (because lots of clients are located on one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end web page hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your site expands. In this way, you economize capital that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still new. Each and every web hosting account supplied by 'OSPRO Hosting' ships with an online web site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'OSPRO Hosting' supplies shared webspace hosting packages in several different countries across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole World is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages supplied 'OSPRO Hosting' are quite well furnished and are available at a good price (beginning from $9.99 for the Business package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may seem problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'OSPRO Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a normal shared web space hosting package through a web page hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free web site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not include complete root access (we, at gomastodon.com, count this as a tiny problem), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web site hosting CP user interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This goes to say that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and features than a VPS can furnish them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'OSPRO Hosting' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to gomastodon.com, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'OSPRO Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' demands, 'OSPRO Hosting' provides a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the servers boast: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'OSPRO Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from gomastodon.com, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'OSPRO Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every web server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'OSPRO Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at gomastodon.com, consider this a small weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (gomastodon.com's) prediction is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (gomastodon.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'OSPRO Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
