An assessment of BRAND A CLOUD

We, at walto.digital, have picked 'BRAND A CLOUD' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Hence we think that this short evaluation of 'BRAND A CLOUD' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'BRAND A CLOUD' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'BRAND A CLOUD' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at walto.digital, have seen is the reasonable prices of the shared website hosting plans delivered by 'BRAND A CLOUD'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting packages provided by 'BRAND A CLOUD' are powered by a custom designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have big complications with, since cPanel is a single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel webspace hosting distributors cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting platform. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the price amazingly low (because lots of customers utilize the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your website expands. Thus, you save capital that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Every web page hosting account offered by 'BRAND A CLOUD' includes an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'BRAND A CLOUD' delivers shared web page hosting services in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'BRAND A CLOUD' are very well stocked and are available at a good price (beginning from $11.24 for the Enterprise package).

Dedicated Servers

In walto.digital's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'BRAND A CLOUD' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' anticipations, 'BRAND A CLOUD' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of site. According to 'BRAND A CLOUD', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from walto.digital, believe that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'BRAND A CLOUD' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers offered by 'BRAND A CLOUD' are all unmanaged. We, at walto.digital, consider this a slight inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (walto.digital's) prediction is that the excellent point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our (walto.digital's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'BRAND A CLOUD' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
