A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we believe that this brief evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web hosting packages supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting packages supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by a custom invented, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an independent bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have considerable complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting suppliers are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the web site hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers share one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web space hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you spare funds that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each website hosting account offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' sports an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' offers shared web space hosting services in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole World is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well stocked and come at a budget price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a regular shared web site hosting package via a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web space hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not include full root privileges (we, at, think that this is a slight problem), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared hosting accounts. This means that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual server, yet need more power and resources than a VPS web server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be defined as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the web servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server provides free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a slight defect, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the A1 HDD package.
