An evaluation of iCodeHosting.com

We, at img.alanakhan.com, have selected 'iCodeHosting.com' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we think that this short evaluation of 'iCodeHosting.com' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'iCodeHosting.com' currently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'iCodeHosting.com' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at img.alanakhan.com, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared webspace hosting solutions provided by 'iCodeHosting.com'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans delivered by 'iCodeHosting.com' are powered by an in-house designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an independent host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting vendors are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must devise their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers are located on one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud website hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you spare money that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Each and every webspace hosting account provided by 'iCodeHosting.com' arrives with an online web site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'iCodeHosting.com' distributes shared webspace hosting solutions in several different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, practically the whole World is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting services offered 'iCodeHosting.com' are very well furnished and come at a very good price (beginning from $4.32 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a VPS server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'iCodeHosting.com' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared site hosting plan via a web site hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When compared to a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not ship with root privileges (we, at img.alanakhan.com, think of this as a slight inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared web space hosting accounts. This goes to say that a recognizable GUI is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual hosting server, yet need more power and reserves than a VPS web hosting server can deliver. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'iCodeHosting.com' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $28.88 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In img.alanakhan.com's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers require a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'iCodeHosting.com' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' expectations, 'iCodeHosting.com' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the hosting servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. In 'iCodeHosting.com's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from img.alanakhan.com, deem that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'iCodeHosting.com' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-charge billing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'iCodeHosting.com' are all unmanaged. We, at img.alanakhan.com, regard this as a minor downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several web page hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (img.alanakhan.com's) prognosis is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our (img.alanakhan.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'iCodeHosting.com' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
