An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at suntribefestival.com, have picked 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we suppose that this brief evaluation of 'NTC Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at suntribefestival.com, have spotted is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting packages delivered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting plans delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by an in-house devised, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting firms are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must devise their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price very low (since a lot of clients are located on one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web page hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small hosting package that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you spare funds that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Every web site hosting plan offered by 'NTC Hosting' boasts an online website building tool and over 40 popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared web hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire World is covered to supply you and your visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'NTC Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at an attractive price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared package via a web page hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When compared with a shared hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include full root privileges (we, at suntribefestival.com, consider this a small defect), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web page hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting plans. This implies that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a VPS, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the VPS servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Servers

In suntribefestival.com's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its users' requirements, 'NTC Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from suntribefestival.com, consider that all dedicated server specifications provided by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at suntribefestival.com, count this as a slight weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (suntribefestival.com's) prediction is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP software futile. Our (suntribefestival.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
