An assessment of Galloway Web Hosting
We, at clients.acquirecommerce.com, have picked 'Galloway Web Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we imagine that this concise review of 'Galloway Web Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Galloway Web Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Galloway Web Hosting' in short:
Shared Hosting Packages
The first thing we, at clients.acquirecommerce.com, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared website hosting plans furnished by 'Galloway Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans offered by 'Galloway Web Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an autonomous pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have colossal problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting vendors cannot include 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 platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered site hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the price very low (since numerous clients are located on one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small website hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. In this way, you spare cash that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each webspace hosting plan provided by 'Galloway Web Hosting' boasts an online website building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Galloway Web Hosting' delivers shared web site hosting packages in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, practically the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting packages provided 'Galloway Web Hosting' are quite well stocked and are available at a very reasonable price (starting from £3.16 for the Starter package).
To users with little to no experience, a private virtual web server may appear hard to administer. That's perhaps why 'Galloway Web Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a regular shared web hosting plan through a web space hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting package such as a free web site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not arrive with complete root access (we, at clients.acquirecommerce.com, regard this as a minor inconvenience), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting CP GUI as the shared accounts. This goes to say that a user-friendly GUI is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can provide them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the VPSs can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Galloway Web Hosting' can be dubbed as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
According to clients.acquirecommerce.com, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Galloway Web Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' requirements, 'Galloway Web Hosting' provides an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of site. According to 'Galloway Web Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from clients.acquirecommerce.com, deem that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'Galloway Web Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-charge billing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Galloway Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at clients.acquirecommerce.com, deem this a small negative point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £31.14 GBP. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of webspace hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (clients.acquirecommerce.com's) prediction is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (clients.acquirecommerce.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Galloway Web Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from £56.65 for the Atom 1 package.
