run by 'reseller'

A review of reseller

We, at, have picked 'reseller' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we imagine that this short evaluation of 'reseller' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'reseller' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'reseller' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared site hosting solutions furnished by 'reseller'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts furnished by 'reseller' are powered by an in-house created, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an independent set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have immense problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based site hosting companies are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered website hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of clients share the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your website expands. In this way, you save funds that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each hosting plan furnished by 'reseller' comprises an online website building tool and over 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'reseller' furnishes shared hosting packages in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole Earth is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'reseller' are really well appointed and come at a very attractive price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear complicated to administer. That's probably why 'reseller' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to handling a typical shared web page hosting plan via a hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not include complete root-level access (we, at, count this as a slight defect), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This implies that a user-friendly GUI is offered to all users who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual web server, yet require more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'reseller' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'reseller' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'reseller' supplies a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of website. In 'reseller's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'reseller' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'reseller' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'reseller' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon 1.8 plan.
