An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at urbanitee.com, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Therefore we anticipate that this succinct evaluation of 'NTC Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at urbanitee.com, have observed is the cheap prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom devised, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a different group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting providers are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to concoct their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered web page hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (since numerous clients are located on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. So, you economize cash that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still brand new. Every web space hosting plan furnished by 'NTC Hosting' comprises an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages furnished 'NTC Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to managing a conventional shared web site hosting account through a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not offer root-level access (we, at urbanitee.com, think that this is a minor problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting plans. This suggests that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a private virtual server can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to urbanitee.com, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'NTC Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'NTC Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from urbanitee.com, think that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server provides free invoice transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at urbanitee.com, deem this a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (urbanitee.com's) prediction is that the great drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any FTP software program pointless. Our (urbanitee.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
