An assessment of AIDA Host

We, at vanshops.com, have picked 'AIDA Host' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this succinct review of 'AIDA Host' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at vanshops.com, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared site hosting solutions provided by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting packages delivered by 'AIDA Host' are driven by a custom designed, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a different set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have enormous difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting providers are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the price very low (because multiple users use the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a small web site hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each web space hosting plan delivered by 'AIDA Host' comes with an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'AIDA Host' delivers shared web hosting packages in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting solution at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'AIDA Host' are really well furnished and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $4.11 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a normal shared web page hosting plan through a hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not ship with full server root privileges (we, at vanshops.com, think that this is a little weakness), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting plans. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a VPS can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In vanshops.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'AIDA Host' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'AIDA Host' delivers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the web servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any sort of website. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from vanshops.com, believe that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every server arrives with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at vanshops.com, regard this as a tiny drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (vanshops.com's) prediction is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our (vanshops.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth package.
