A survey of Ultra Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Ultra Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we expect that this short review of 'Ultra Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Ultra Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Ultra Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared web hosting packages furnished by 'Ultra Hosting'. 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 page hosting accounts provided by 'Ultra Hosting' are driven by an in-house designed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a different pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have immense problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting corporations are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must concoct their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because lots of clients are located on one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web page hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you save capital that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Every site hosting account furnished by 'Ultra Hosting' offers an online site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Ultra Hosting' furnishes shared website hosting solutions in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, nearly the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Ultra Hosting' are really well furnished and are available at a very low price (starting from $5.00 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual private web server may seem problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Ultra Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to handling a conventional shared website hosting account via a web hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting plan such as a fee-free site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When matched against a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not include complete root-level access (we, at, think that this is a tiny downside), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This signifies that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS server, yet demand more power and supplies than a private virtual web hosting server can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Ultra Hosting' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Ultra Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Ultra Hosting' delivers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the web servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable work of any type of site. According to 'Ultra Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Ultra Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Ultra Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a little drawback, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade offers several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Ultra Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
