An evaluation of CultHost.com

We, at cbro.in, have picked 'CultHost.com' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we imagine that this concise review of 'CultHost.com' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'CultHost.com' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'CultHost.com' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at cbro.in, have discerned is the low prices of the shared web page hosting services furnished by 'CultHost.com'. 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 web hosting packages delivered by 'CultHost.com' are powered by an in-house created, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous host of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have big complications with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting firms cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web page hosting system. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price really low (because lots of users utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you save capital that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Every site hosting account supplied by 'CultHost.com' includes an online website builder and over forty popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'CultHost.com' furnishes shared webspace hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'CultHost.com' are really well equipped and come at a low-cost price (starting from $3.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'CultHost.com' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a conventional shared web hosting package through a web hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a fee-free web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated package is many times larger than that of a shared account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When matched against a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not offer complete server root access (we, at cbro.in, think of this as a little problem), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same web hosting CP interface as the shared website hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a private virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'CultHost.com' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In cbro.in's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'CultHost.com' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' needs, 'CultHost.com' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of site. In 'CultHost.com's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from cbro.in, consider that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'CultHost.com' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-charge billing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'CultHost.com' are all unmanaged. We, at cbro.in, consider this a little defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cbro.in's) prediction is that the outstanding point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (cbro.in's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'CultHost.com' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $55.00 for the Atom 4c package.
