An evaluation of Cloud LLC

We, at meleads.org, have picked 'Cloud LLC' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this short assessment of 'Cloud LLC' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Cloud LLC' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Cloud LLC' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at meleads.org, have noted is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting solutions offered by 'Cloud LLC'. 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 page hosting plans provided by 'Cloud LLC' are driven by a custom devised, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an independent bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have colossal predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting corporations cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud web page hosting system. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the website hosting price really low (since numerous clients share one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered site hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small website hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your site grows. In this way, you economize money that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting package provided by 'Cloud LLC' boasts an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Cloud LLC' supplies shared web hosting packages in several different countries across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans supplied 'Cloud LLC' are very well stocked and are available at a very low price (starting from $3.83 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Cloud LLC' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a regular shared web site hosting plan through a web page hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting packages. When matched against a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not come with full root access (we, at meleads.org, deem this a slight defect), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This hints that a known GUI is accessible by all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a VPS, yet demand more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can provide them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Cloud LLC' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to meleads.org, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Cloud LLC' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'Cloud LLC' offers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of website. In 'Cloud LLC's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from meleads.org, deem that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Cloud LLC' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every web server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Cloud LLC' are all unmanaged. We, at meleads.org, deem this a slight defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (meleads.org's) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (meleads.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Cloud LLC' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
