A survey of ClearHosting.no

We, at cleardesign.no, have selected 'ClearHosting.no' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this concise evaluation of 'ClearHosting.no' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'ClearHosting.no' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'ClearHosting.no' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at cleardesign.no, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting accounts furnished by 'ClearHosting.no'. 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 site hosting packages delivered by 'ClearHosting.no' are powered by a custom devised, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an individual pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have mammoth troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based site hosting suppliers are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web hosting solution. With a shared plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (because a lot of clients are hosted on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web site hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really need, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you save cash that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still new. Each web page hosting plan provided by 'ClearHosting.no' comprises an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'ClearHosting.no' provides shared web site hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, almost the entire Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting service at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'ClearHosting.no' are very well furnished and come at a low-cost price (starting from $3.75 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may appear difficult to manage. That's perhaps why 'ClearHosting.no' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared web hosting account through a web space hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated plan is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not come with complete root-level access (we, at cleardesign.no, deem this a tiny defect), but the good point is that they are administered through the same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This suggests that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS web server, yet demand more power and reserves than a VPS web server can offer. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'ClearHosting.no' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Pro package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to cleardesign.no, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers need a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'ClearHosting.no' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' demands, 'ClearHosting.no' supplies a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the hosting servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of website. In 'ClearHosting.no's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from cleardesign.no, think that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'ClearHosting.no' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server offers free-of-charge invoicing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers delivered by 'ClearHosting.no' are all unmanaged. We, at cleardesign.no, think of this as a little minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cleardesign.no's) forecast is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software futile. Our (cleardesign.no's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'ClearHosting.no' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $75.00 for the Atom 2 package.
