administered by 'GeeksCloud'

An assessment of GeeksCloud

We, at, have selected 'GeeksCloud' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this concise review of 'GeeksCloud' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'GeeksCloud' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'GeeksCloud' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the budget prices of the shared web site hosting accounts delivered by 'GeeksCloud'. 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 hosting packages furnished by 'GeeksCloud' are driven by a custom invented, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a different group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have enormous complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting corporations are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are driven by a real cloud web hosting platform. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price really low (because plenty of users are hosted on the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end web page hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web page hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you economize funds that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting package supplied by 'GeeksCloud' contains an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'GeeksCloud' provides shared web hosting packages in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting service at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'GeeksCloud' are really well stocked and come at an affordable price (beginning from $4.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'GeeksCloud' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a typical shared site hosting account via a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting package such as a fee-free site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with 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 domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not include full server root privileges (we, at, consider this a small inconvenience), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web space hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting accounts. This means that a well-known graphical environment is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a VPS web server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a VPS web server can deliver. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'GeeksCloud' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $25.00 for the Galaxy plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'GeeksCloud' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' demands, 'GeeksCloud' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of website. In 'GeeksCloud's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'GeeksCloud' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'GeeksCloud' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a slight defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'GeeksCloud' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Florida package.
