An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at bppe.org, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we think that this concise assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at bppe.org, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared web site hosting packages offered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a different pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based site hosting companies cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud hosting platform. With a shared package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (because multiple clients use the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a small hosting account that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your website grows. That way, you economize cash that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Each web space hosting package provided by 'NTC Hosting' comprises an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'NTC Hosting' distributes shared web hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions offered 'NTC Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a very modest price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American data center in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a conventional shared web space hosting account through a hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at bppe.org, think that this is a minor inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed via the same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web page hosting plans. This signifies that a recognizable GUI is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual private hosting server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In bppe.org's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'NTC Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' anticipations, 'NTC Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady work of any kind of site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from bppe.org, consider that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server provides free invoicing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at bppe.org, regard this as a little problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (bppe.org's) prediction is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program pointless. Our (bppe.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
