administered by 'NTC Hosting'

An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at abitelecom.com, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we think that this short assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at abitelecom.com, have detected is the affordable prices of the shared web page hosting services supplied by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom built, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an independent group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have colossal difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting distributors cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine cloud website hosting system. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the web space hosting price very low (because lots of users are hosted on one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small webspace hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you economize funds that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each website hosting package provided by 'NTC Hosting' boasts an online website builder and over 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' supplies shared web hosting plans in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting service at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'NTC Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a very cheap price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a virtual private hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to managing a standard shared site hosting plan through a hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server account is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting plans. When matched against a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server plans do not include server root access (we, at abitelecom.com, think of this as a minor inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same web site hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting accounts. This hints that a known graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a VPS web server, yet need more power and resources than a private virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In abitelecom.com's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'NTC Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' expectations, 'NTC Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the hosting servers boast: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of website. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from abitelecom.com, believe that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at abitelecom.com, think of this as a slight minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (abitelecom.com's) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our (abitelecom.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Gold 1 package.
