A survey of 100WebSpace

We, at, have picked '100WebSpace' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Hence we imagine that this short review of '100WebSpace' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that '100WebSpace' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '100WebSpace' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared hosting packages provided by '100WebSpace'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts offered by '100WebSpace' are powered by an in-house created, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a different set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have colossal problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting firms are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the web site hosting price very low (since a lot of clients utilize the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered site hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a small web site hosting package that cannot accommodate your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you economize funds that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still novel. Every web hosting plan supplied by '100WebSpace' ships with an online web site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. '100WebSpace' furnishes shared web site hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable site hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions offered '100WebSpace' are quite well furnished and come at an affordable price (starting from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a standard shared plan through a web space hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When compared to a shared web page hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not come with root access (we, at, count this as a slight weakness), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same CP GUI as the shared web site hosting plans. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a VPS web hosting server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by '100WebSpace' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from '100WebSpace' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' needs, '100WebSpace' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs supplied by '100WebSpace' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a small drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Optimus plan.
