A survey of LinuxSolutions

We, at yecora.org, have selected 'LinuxSolutions' to be our present domain and hosting provider. This is why we expect that this succinct review of 'LinuxSolutions' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'LinuxSolutions' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'LinuxSolutions' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first thing we, at yecora.org, have observed is the low prices of the shared site hosting packages delivered by 'LinuxSolutions'. 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 hosting packages provided by 'LinuxSolutions' are powered by an in-house built, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by an independent pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have great problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting distributors are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price very low (since numerous customers use the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced web site hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web site hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you economize capital that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each web hosting plan furnished by 'LinuxSolutions' comes with an online web site builder and over forty widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'LinuxSolutions' delivers shared hosting accounts in several different countries across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the entire planet is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting solution at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'LinuxSolutions' are very well equipped and come at a very attractive price (starting from €2.44 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no experience, a private virtual hosting server may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'LinuxSolutions' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a conventional shared site hosting plan via a site hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting account such as a free site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not ship with root privileges (we, at yecora.org, consider this a little inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same CP user interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This goes to say that a user-friendly GUI is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'LinuxSolutions' can be defined as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In yecora.org's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'LinuxSolutions' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' expectations, 'LinuxSolutions' provides a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'LinuxSolutions', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from yecora.org, think that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'LinuxSolutions' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every web server arrives with free invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by 'LinuxSolutions' are all unmanaged. We, at yecora.org, regard this as a tiny defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of €29.25 EUR. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (yecora.org's) prognosis is that the superb point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will possibly make the use of any FTP software futile. Our (yecora.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'LinuxSolutions' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from €63.37 for the Atom 1 package.
