A review of Cowles Hosting

We, at oliverhbailey.com, have picked 'Cowles Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we suppose that this short assessment of 'Cowles Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'Cowles Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Cowles Hosting' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at oliverhbailey.com, have noted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web hosting solutions offered by 'Cowles 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 web space hosting packages offered by 'Cowles Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have immense difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel webspace hosting companies are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to design their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by a real clustered hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the price very low (since a lot of users are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you save cash that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each and every webspace hosting account offered by 'Cowles Hosting' ships with an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Cowles Hosting' furnishes shared web hosting plans in a number of different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, virtually the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Cowles Hosting' are very well furnished and are available at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $2.75 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no experience, a VPS may seem problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Cowles Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a normal shared plan via a Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not come with root access (we, at oliverhbailey.com, regard this as a small weakness), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared webspace hosting plans. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual web server, yet need more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Cowles Hosting' can be classified as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Base plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to oliverhbailey.com, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Cowles Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'Cowles Hosting' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of website. According to 'Cowles Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from oliverhbailey.com, consider that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Cowles Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Cowles Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at oliverhbailey.com, consider this a slight downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (oliverhbailey.com's) prediction is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our (oliverhbailey.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Cowles Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
