An evaluation of HD Web Hosting

We, at, have selected 'HD Web Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this concise assessment of 'HD Web Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'HD Web Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'HD Web Hosting' in brief:

Shared Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting services offered by 'HD Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans offered by 'HD Web Hosting' are driven by an in-house devised, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by an individual bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting firms are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud web hosting system. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the price amazingly low (since lots of users utilize the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud website hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic hosting package that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you economize cash that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting plan provided by 'HD Web Hosting' comprises an online web site builder and more than forty popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'HD Web Hosting' furnishes shared site hosting accounts in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'HD Web Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a very good price (beginning from $5.00 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'HD Web Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a normal shared account through a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not ship with full root-level access (we, at, deem this a small negative point), but the plus is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This goes to say that a known graphical environment is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a virtual web server can offer. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the Virtual Private 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 provided by 'HD Web Hosting' can be defined as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Budget Semi Dedicated plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'HD Web Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'HD Web Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of site. According to 'HD Web Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'HD Web Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each server arrives with free-of-cost billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'HD Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight weak point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade offers several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'HD Web Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
