An evaluation of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this brief review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have noted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting accounts furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting distributors are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must devise their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by an actual cloud web hosting platform. With a shared package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the website hosting price really low (because many clients utilize the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud website hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you actually require, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny website hosting package that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still new. Each web site hosting package delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' sports an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' offers shared web space hosting accounts in several different countries around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans offered 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a very good price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a regular shared hosting package through a web page hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting packages. When compared with a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, consider this a minor weakness), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared hosting packages. This means that a user-friendly graphical environment is available to all clients who are not confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, yet require more power and features than a private virtual server can supply them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPSs can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
