A survey of NTC Hosting

We, at operamed.co.uk, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we believe that this succinct review of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at operamed.co.uk, have noted is the low prices of the shared webspace hosting services offered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have big problems with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting providers cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of clients are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end site hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you economize funds that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting package delivered by 'NTC Hosting' includes an online site builder and more than forty popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' delivers shared web site hosting plans in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, practically the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting service at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'NTC Hosting' are very well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to managing a normal shared site hosting account through a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free website builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When matched against a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not ship with full root access (we, at operamed.co.uk, think that this is a tiny disadvantage), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting CP user interface as the shared site hosting packages. This means that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a VPS server, yet are in need of more power and features than a virtual private web hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Servers

According to operamed.co.uk, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' demands, 'NTC Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers boast: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from operamed.co.uk, consider that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server provides free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at operamed.co.uk, think that this is a tiny negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of webspace hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (operamed.co.uk's) prediction is that the exceptional point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (operamed.co.uk's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
