An assessment of Malta Hosting

We, at blockchain-island.com, have selected 'Malta Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we consider that this brief assessment of 'Malta Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Malta Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Malta Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The first thing we, at blockchain-island.com, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared web space hosting plans supplied by 'Malta Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts furnished by 'Malta Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an autonomous host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting corporations are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the site hosting price really low (because multiple customers are hosted on the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web space hosting system, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page expands. That way, you spare money that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still novel. Each web space hosting plan furnished by 'Malta Hosting' contains an online site builder and more than 40 widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Malta Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, nearly the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Malta Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a very affordable price (beginning from €3.25 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Malta Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared account via a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web page hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not ship with complete root access (we, at blockchain-island.com, think that this is a tiny downside), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting CP interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This signifies that a familiar GUI is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a virtual hosting server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Malta Hosting' can be defined as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In blockchain-island.com's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Malta Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' expectations, 'Malta Hosting' provides a selection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the web servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. According to 'Malta Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from blockchain-island.com, consider that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'Malta Hosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server arrives with free billing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Malta Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at blockchain-island.com, think of this as a little inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to €30.34 EUR. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (blockchain-island.com's) prediction is that the great point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our (blockchain-island.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Malta Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from €63.37 for the Atom 1 package.
