An evaluation of DNA Hosting

We, at automatedcalling.com, have chosen 'DNA Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this brief assessment of 'DNA Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'DNA Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'DNA Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at automatedcalling.com, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts furnished by 'DNA Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting accounts furnished by 'DNA Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting suppliers are not able to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the site hosting price very low (since numerous customers utilize the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web space hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web site hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still new. Each web space hosting package delivered by 'DNA Hosting' boasts an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'DNA Hosting' distributes shared web page hosting services in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, practically the whole planet is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages delivered 'DNA Hosting' are quite well furnished and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $5.83 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may appear difficult to administer. That's probably why 'DNA Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared website hosting account through a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-cost site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server account is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not come with full root access (we, at automatedcalling.com, count this as a little weak point), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This signifies that a familiar graphical environment is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual private web server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual web hosting server can give them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'DNA Hosting' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Base plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to automatedcalling.com, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'DNA Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'DNA Hosting' offers an array of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'DNA Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from automatedcalling.com, consider that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'DNA Hosting' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'DNA Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at automatedcalling.com, think that this is a tiny minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (automatedcalling.com's) prognosis is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software useless. Our (automatedcalling.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'DNA Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
