A review of Hosting At Its Best

We, at, have selected 'Hosting At Its Best' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we suppose that this brief assessment of 'Hosting At Its Best' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Hosting At Its Best' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hosting At Its Best' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared website hosting solutions furnished by 'Hosting At Its Best'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages offered by 'Hosting At Its Best' are powered by an in-house invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an independent pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have great problems with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to construct their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered website hosting solution. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the web site hosting price really low (since lots of customers share the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still new. Each and every webspace hosting package offered by 'Hosting At Its Best' offers an online website builder and more than forty popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Hosting At Its Best' offers shared site hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole planet is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Hosting At Its Best' are very well furnished and come at an excellent price (starting from $4.00 for the Entry package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Hosting At Its Best' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a normal shared site hosting package through a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not ship with full root-level access (we, at, deem this a little defect), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This means that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to administer a virtual private hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual web server can deliver. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which host the virtual web hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Hosting At Its Best' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'Hosting At Its Best' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' needs, 'Hosting At Its Best' supplies an assortment of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable work of any type of web site. According to 'Hosting At Its Best', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Hosting At Its Best' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server ships with free billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Hosting At Its Best' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of website hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Hosting At Its Best' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
