A review of I'mHosting

We, at, have picked 'I'mHosting' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we expect that this short assessment of 'I'mHosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'I'mHosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'I'mHosting' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have seen is the budget prices of the shared web site hosting packages furnished by 'I'mHosting'. 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 website hosting packages provided by 'I'mHosting' are powered by an in-house invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a different group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have immense difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel site hosting vendors are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the price amazingly low (because many clients use the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny web page hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you save money that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Each web hosting package delivered by 'I'mHosting' contains an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'I'mHosting' furnishes shared web space hosting plans in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, nearly the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'I'mHosting' are quite well appointed and come at an affordable price (beginning from $5.42 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'I'mHosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared site hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting packages. When compared to a shared hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not include full server root access (we, at, count this as a minor downside), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same Control Panel tool as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a VPS can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the VPS web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'I'mHosting' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'I'mHosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' requirements, 'I'mHosting' offers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any kind of site. According to 'I'mHosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'I'mHosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every hosting server ships with free billing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'I'mHosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'I'mHosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
