An evaluation of vPro Hosting

We, at cloudtime.co, have picked 'vPro Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Therefore we think that this succinct assessment of 'vPro Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'vPro Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'vPro Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at cloudtime.co, have seen is the modest prices of the shared web hosting services offered by 'vPro Hosting'. 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 site hosting packages delivered by 'vPro Hosting' are driven by an in-house designed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a separate bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have mammoth predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting companies cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud webspace hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price amazingly low (since lots of users are located on the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web site hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. That way, you economize capital that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still novel. Each web space hosting account delivered by 'vPro Hosting' ships with an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'vPro Hosting' delivers shared site hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'vPro Hosting' are very well equipped and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $3.58 for the Vpro SMB plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'vPro Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to managing a typical shared web space hosting plan through a web site hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated account is many times greater than that of a shared account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not offer full server root privileges (we, at cloudtime.co, think that this is a slight disadvantage), but the good point is that they are administered through the same web space hosting CP GUI as the shared web site hosting accounts. This hints that a known graphical environment is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'vPro Hosting' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Manager package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In cloudtime.co's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'vPro Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' requirements, 'vPro Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'vPro Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from cloudtime.co, deem that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'vPro Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server comes with free invoice transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'vPro Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at cloudtime.co, deem this a slight weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cloudtime.co's) forecast is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software program futile. Our (cloudtime.co's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'vPro Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
