An evaluation of 100WebSpace

We, at, have chosen '100WebSpace' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this brief evaluation of '100WebSpace' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere fact is that '100WebSpace' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting accounts offered by '100WebSpace'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts offered by '100WebSpace' are driven by a custom invented, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a separate set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting distributors are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an actual cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price really low (because many customers are located on one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting account supplied by '100WebSpace' comprises an online website building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for website design services. '100WebSpace' distributes shared hosting packages in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering 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 region. Hence, virtually the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting service at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished '100WebSpace' are very well equipped and come at a very good price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a private virtual server may seem difficult to administer. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a regular shared web space hosting plan via a Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a fee-free site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server account is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When compared with a shared site hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not come with root-level access (we, at, deem this a small minus), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web hosting CP tool as the shared hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical environment is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to administer a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a virtual private hosting server can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by '100WebSpace' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $55.00 for the Standard plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from '100WebSpace' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' needs, '100WebSpace' supplies an array of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers have: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of web site. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations furnished by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny downside, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Optimus plan.
