An assessment of NTC Hosting

We, at dfsl.co.uk, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Hence we imagine that this concise review of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering practically the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at dfsl.co.uk, have perceived is the low prices of the shared web site hosting solutions offered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom developed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have great difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web page hosting system. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (since plenty of clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered webspace hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web page hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you spare cash that you can spend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Each and every web page hosting account supplied by 'NTC Hosting' includes an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared web space hosting services in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable site hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'NTC Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a very good price (beginning from $5.25 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared web page hosting package through a website hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting account such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When compared with a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not come with full root-level access (we, at dfsl.co.uk, count this as a small downside), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web page hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This hints that a known graphical environment is accessible by all users who are not confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In dfsl.co.uk's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'NTC Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' expectations, 'NTC Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from dfsl.co.uk, believe that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at dfsl.co.uk, regard this as a little minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (dfsl.co.uk's) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (dfsl.co.uk's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
