A survey of CloudPanel
We, at car4you.com.kh, have picked 'CloudPanel' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. This is why we suppose that this concise review of 'CloudPanel' is perchance going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'CloudPanel' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'CloudPanel' in a nutshell:
Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts
The initial detail we, at car4you.com.kh, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared hosting plans delivered by 'CloudPanel'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting accounts furnished by 'CloudPanel' are driven by an in-house invented, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a different host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting suppliers cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to set up their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web page hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the web site hosting price very low (since a lot of customers use the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you spare money that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Every web space hosting plan delivered by 'CloudPanel' comes with an online website building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'CloudPanel' offers shared webspace hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting services delivered 'CloudPanel' are very well furnished and are available at a very low price (starting from $5.50 for the Economy package).
Semi-dedicated Web Servers
To people with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why 'CloudPanel' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a typical shared package via a website hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting account such as a free web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not arrive with full root privileges (we, at car4you.com.kh, deem this a small weakness), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web space hosting CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This hints that a well-known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual private hosting server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual web server can supply them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'CloudPanel' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Mercury package.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
In car4you.com.kh's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'CloudPanel' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' anticipations, 'CloudPanel' delivers an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and steady performance of any kind of site. According to 'CloudPanel', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from car4you.com.kh, deem that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'CloudPanel' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server provides free invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers offered by 'CloudPanel' are all unmanaged. We, at car4you.com.kh, count this as a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (car4you.com.kh's) prediction is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (car4you.com.kh's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'CloudPanel' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Arctic plan.
