An assessment of GTO Hosting

We, at digitart.com.mx, have picked 'GTO Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this short evaluation of 'GTO Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'GTO Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'GTO Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at digitart.com.mx, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared site hosting packages furnished by 'GTO 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 accounts offered by 'GTO Hosting' are powered by a custom invented, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a separate bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting firms are unable to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must devise their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual cloud web space hosting system. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since multiple users utilize one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web hosting plan that cannot host your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. Thus, you save capital that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each site hosting plan offered by 'GTO Hosting' arrives with an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'GTO Hosting' delivers shared hosting packages in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the entire World is covered to present you and your visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting services furnished 'GTO Hosting' are really well furnished and come at a very affordable price (beginning from $5.75 for the Micro package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'GTO Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a conventional shared website hosting plan through a CP interface. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not arrive with full server root access (we, at digitart.com.mx, regard this as a small minus), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same website hosting CP tool as the shared web space hosting plans. This hints that a well-known graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a VPS server, yet need more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can provide them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'GTO Hosting' can be defined as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In digitart.com.mx's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'GTO Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' expectations, 'GTO Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of site. According to 'GTO Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from digitart.com.mx, consider that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'GTO Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server comes with free invoicing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'GTO Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at digitart.com.mx, consider this a tiny problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (digitart.com.mx's) forecast is that the superb point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (digitart.com.mx's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'GTO Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $205.00 for the Xeon 4 package.
