An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at dp.logopraxis.online, have picked 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we presume that this short assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first detail we, at dp.logopraxis.online, have noticed is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting services provided by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom built, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a different bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have enormous complications with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting providers are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must concoct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud web hosting system. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price really low (since numerous clients are located on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered website hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a powerful web site hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page expands. In this way, you spare funds that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every website hosting package provided by 'NTC Hosting' sports an online site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' delivers shared site hosting plans in a number of different countries across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, nearly the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting service at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'NTC Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a good price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a conventional shared website hosting package via a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a fee-free web site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When compared to a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not include full server root privileges (we, at dp.logopraxis.online, think that this is a little defect), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared plans. This hints that a recognizable graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a private virtual hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual private hosting server can provide them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Servers

In dp.logopraxis.online's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'NTC Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' needs, 'NTC Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from dp.logopraxis.online, consider that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at dp.logopraxis.online, think that this is a small minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (dp.logopraxis.online's) forecast is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software futile. Our (dp.logopraxis.online's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
