An evaluation of I'mHosting

We, at, have chosen 'I'mHosting' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. This is why we expect that this short review of 'I'mHosting' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'I'mHosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'I'mHosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting plans furnished by 'I'mHosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts delivered by 'I'mHosting' are powered by an in-house built, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an independent bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have mammoth problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting distributors are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must construct their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud site hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the website hosting price very low (since a lot of customers share one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really require, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you save funds that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each hosting plan delivered by 'I'mHosting' comprises an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'I'mHosting' provides shared web site hosting solutions in several different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the whole World is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'I'mHosting' are very well equipped and come at a low-cost price (starting from $5.42 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS hosting server may appear problematic to manage. That's probably why 'I'mHosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a standard shared website hosting account through a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting package such as a free web site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not ship with root privileges (we, at, think that this is a tiny drawback), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared web hosting packages. This goes to say that a recognizable GUI is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and features than a VPS web hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'I'mHosting' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'I'mHosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' needs, 'I'mHosting' supplies an array of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the servers boast: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'I'mHosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'I'mHosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server provides free invoicing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'I'mHosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'I'mHosting' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
