A review of AmtecHost

We, at hausaland.com, have selected 'AmtecHost' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we consider that this concise review of 'AmtecHost' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'AmtecHost' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AmtecHost' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at hausaland.com, have spotted is the low-cost prices of the shared hosting solutions delivered by 'AmtecHost'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages provided by 'AmtecHost' are driven by a custom built, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting vendors are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web site hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (since many users are located on one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a small webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still novel. Each web page hosting account delivered by 'AmtecHost' boasts an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'AmtecHost' offers shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, nearly the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'AmtecHost' are quite well appointed and are available at a very modest price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual server may seem difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'AmtecHost' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a normal shared web hosting plan through a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting package such as a fee-free site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not come with complete root-level access (we, at hausaland.com, count this as a little disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same website hosting CP user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This implies that a known GUI is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS web server, yet demand more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'AmtecHost' can be categorized as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $40.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In hausaland.com's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'AmtecHost' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' anticipations, 'AmtecHost' supplies an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of site. According to 'AmtecHost', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from hausaland.com, consider that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'AmtecHost' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server arrives with free invoicing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'AmtecHost' are all unmanaged. We, at hausaland.com, deem this a slight weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $36.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (hausaland.com's) forecast is that the exceptional point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (hausaland.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'AmtecHost' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $99.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
