An evaluation of and $5 domains

We, at, have selected ' and $5 domains' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. Therefore we consider that this concise assessment of ' and $5 domains' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that ' and $5 domains' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from ' and $5 domains' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web page hosting solutions offered by ' and $5 domains'. 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 webspace hosting plans supplied by ' and $5 domains' are powered by a custom invented, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a separate set of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have immense problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting providers cannot add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to design their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the web site hosting price very low (since a lot of users use the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web page hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence expands. In this way, you spare cash that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting plan offered by ' and $5 domains' comes with an online site building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. ' and $5 domains' supplies shared web page hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable hosting service at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts supplied ' and $5 domains' are very well appointed and come at a good price (beginning from $4.17 for the Business package).

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from ' and $5 domains' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' requirements, ' and $5 domains' delivers a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of website. According to ' and $5 domains', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specifications furnished by ' and $5 domains' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by ' and $5 domains' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by ' and $5 domains' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
