A survey of Malta Hosting

We, at maltabusiness.net, have chosen 'Malta Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we deem that this succinct assessment of 'Malta Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Malta Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Malta Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at maltabusiness.net, have noted is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts offered by 'Malta 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 webspace hosting plans supplied by 'Malta Hosting' are powered by a custom developed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an individual pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have enormous troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting suppliers cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud webspace hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the price really low (because lots of clients are located on one and the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web space hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny web page hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you save capital that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every website hosting plan delivered by 'Malta Hosting' comes with an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Malta Hosting' distributes shared site hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, nearly the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Malta Hosting' are really well appointed and come at a low-cost price (beginning from €3.39 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Malta Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a standard shared website hosting account through a hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not ship with complete root-level access (we, at maltabusiness.net, think that this is a small weakness), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This implies that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS server, yet require more power and system resources than a virtual private web server can confer to them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the VPS web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Malta Hosting' can be categorized as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from €19.23 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In maltabusiness.net's opinion, large sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'Malta Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' requirements, 'Malta Hosting' delivers an assortment of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of web site. According to 'Malta Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from maltabusiness.net, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'Malta Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers provided by 'Malta Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at maltabusiness.net, regard this as a little minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to €31.27 EUR. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (maltabusiness.net's) prognosis is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our (maltabusiness.net's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Malta Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from €63.37 for the Atom 1 plan.
