An assessment of Host Blazers

We, at portal5.pro, have chosen 'Host Blazers' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Therefore we presume that this short evaluation of 'Host Blazers' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Host Blazers' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Host Blazers' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at portal5.pro, have observed is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting services supplied by 'Host Blazers'. 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 web site hosting plans offered by 'Host Blazers' are driven by a custom invented, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by an autonomous host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have immense troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting distributors are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must build their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of users are located on one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a high-end web hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you spare capital that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting package delivered by 'Host Blazers' boasts an online site builder and more than 40 widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Host Blazers' offers shared web page hosting plans in several different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, virtually the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and fast site hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Host Blazers' are very well appointed and are available at an attractive price (starting from $4.25 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may appear complicated to administer. That's probably why 'Host Blazers' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main American data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to handling a typical shared web page hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting package such as a free website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When compared with a shared account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not include root access (we, at portal5.pro, think that this is a slight inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web space hosting plans. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual web server, yet need more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Host Blazers' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to portal5.pro, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'Host Blazers' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' demands, 'Host Blazers' provides a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of website. According to 'Host Blazers', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from portal5.pro, consider that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'Host Blazers' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server provides free invoicing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Host Blazers' are all unmanaged. We, at portal5.pro, regard this as a little weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (portal5.pro's) prognosis is that the superb point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our (portal5.pro's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Host Blazers' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
