An evaluation of 100WebSpace

We, at, have chosen '100WebSpace' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this brief evaluation of '100WebSpace' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that '100WebSpace' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting packages delivered by '100WebSpace'. 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 web site hosting accounts offered by '100WebSpace' are powered by a custom developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a separate bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting vendors cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must construct their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by a real cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price very low (since multiple clients use one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Hence, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each web site hosting package offered by '100WebSpace' arrives with an online website builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. '100WebSpace' furnishes shared webspace hosting services in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages supplied '100WebSpace' are really well furnished and are available at a very modest price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why '100WebSpace' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a regular shared website hosting plan through a website hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include root access (we, at, deem this a little disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared accounts. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical interface is accessible by all customers who are not confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by '100WebSpace' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the folks from '100WebSpace' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, '100WebSpace' offers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. According to '100WebSpace', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages supplied by '100WebSpace' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a small disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
