A review of BizTalk Hosting

We, at meconsultants.co.ug, have picked 'BizTalk Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this concise review of 'BizTalk Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'BizTalk Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'BizTalk Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at meconsultants.co.ug, have observed is the budget prices of the shared web space hosting solutions delivered by 'BizTalk Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting accounts offered by 'BizTalk Hosting' are driven by a custom created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a separate host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web space hosting companies are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to set up their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the site hosting price amazingly low (since lots of users are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web space hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small site hosting account that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Every web space hosting package offered by 'BizTalk Hosting' boasts an online site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'BizTalk Hosting' distributes shared webspace hosting plans in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the whole World is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web space hosting solution at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'BizTalk Hosting' are very well equipped and come at an affordable price (beginning from $5.42 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's probably why 'BizTalk Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to handling a regular shared plan via a web page hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared web hosting account such as a free web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When compared to a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not offer server root access (we, at meconsultants.co.ug, deem this a little problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web page hosting plans. This hints that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all users who are not confident enough to administer a Virtual Private Server, yet require more power and features than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'BizTalk Hosting' can be categorized as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to meconsultants.co.ug, large sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'BizTalk Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' requirements, 'BizTalk Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'BizTalk Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from meconsultants.co.ug, think that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'BizTalk Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server ships with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'BizTalk Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at meconsultants.co.ug, regard this as a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (meconsultants.co.ug's) prognosis is that the outstanding drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (meconsultants.co.ug's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'BizTalk Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
