A review of Sitewarehouse

We, at skatemagic.ca, have selected 'Sitewarehouse' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we suppose that this brief review of 'Sitewarehouse' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Sitewarehouse' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Sitewarehouse' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The first detail we, at skatemagic.ca, have perceived is the low prices of the shared web page hosting solutions supplied by 'Sitewarehouse'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts delivered by 'Sitewarehouse' are driven by a custom built, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must invent their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud webspace hosting system. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the site hosting price really low (since plenty of users are located on the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful web site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you save cash that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each and every web site hosting plan furnished by 'Sitewarehouse' comprises an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Sitewarehouse' furnishes shared web site hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and dependable site hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'Sitewarehouse' are quite well furnished and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $6.33 for the BRONZE plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual hosting server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Sitewarehouse' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a regular shared account through a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated package is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not include root access (we, at skatemagic.ca, consider this a little disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This indicates that a known GUI is available to all users who are not confident enough to manage a virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Sitewarehouse' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the SW Semi-dedicated L plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In skatemagic.ca's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Sitewarehouse' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' demands, 'Sitewarehouse' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of web site. According to 'Sitewarehouse', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from skatemagic.ca, deem that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'Sitewarehouse' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server arrives with free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers provided by 'Sitewarehouse' are all unmanaged. We, at skatemagic.ca, deem this a minor defect, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (skatemagic.ca's) forecast is that the exceptional drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our (skatemagic.ca's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Sitewarehouse' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Sitewarehouse Server Silver plan.
