A survey of woodward Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'woodward Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we consider that this concise assessment of 'woodward Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'woodward Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'woodward Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting accounts supplied by 'woodward Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting accounts offered by 'woodward Hosting' are powered by an in-house invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a separate set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting corporations are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web space hosting price really low (because multiple clients share one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you spare cash that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still novel. Each and every website hosting account delivered by 'woodward Hosting' includes an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'woodward Hosting' offers shared web site hosting plans in several different countries around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web space hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'woodward Hosting' are very well equipped and are available at a very affordable price (beginning from A$3.58 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'woodward Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a standard shared webspace hosting account through a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting account such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When compared with a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not come with root-level access (we, at, count this as a little defect), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting CP interface as the shared web hosting packages. This signifies that a well-known graphical interface is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a VPS web server can offer. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'woodward Hosting' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from A$28.67 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'woodward Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'woodward Hosting' delivers a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of site. According to 'woodward Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'woodward Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every web server comes with free billing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'woodward Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of A$43.00 AUD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'woodward Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from A$107.50 for the Atom 2 package.
