An assessment of 100WebSpace

We, at, have picked '100WebSpace' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we deem that this brief assessment of '100WebSpace' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that '100WebSpace' presently offers domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '100WebSpace' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have seen is the low prices of the shared web space hosting plans provided by '100WebSpace'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans furnished by '100WebSpace' are powered by a custom built, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a different host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have big predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting vendors cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the hosting price really low (since multiple clients utilize the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you save funds that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each and every site hosting plan provided by '100WebSpace' contains an online site building tool and more than forty popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. '100WebSpace' supplies shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions delivered '100WebSpace' are really well equipped and are available at an excellent price (starting from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a VPS server may appear tough to manage. That's perhaps why '100WebSpace' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a typical shared webspace hosting package via a web hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not offer full root-level access (we, at, regard this as a minor defect), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This means that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by '100WebSpace' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the guys from '100WebSpace' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' requirements, '100WebSpace' supplies an assortment of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the web servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server provides free-of-charge billing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
