A review of WebHostNinja

We, at kiff.co.za, have picked 'WebHostNinja' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Hence we imagine that this brief review of 'WebHostNinja' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'WebHostNinja' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'WebHostNinja' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at kiff.co.za, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared site hosting packages delivered by 'WebHostNinja'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts delivered by 'WebHostNinja' are powered by a custom built, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a different stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have immense predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting providers are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an actual cloud web page hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers share one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web page hosting system, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting plan that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. In this way, you save cash that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each and every web hosting package delivered by 'WebHostNinja' arrives with an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'WebHostNinja' offers shared web space hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'WebHostNinja' are really well appointed and come at a very good price (beginning from $3.99 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual hosting server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'WebHostNinja' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a conventional shared hosting package via a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When compared with a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not include full root access (we, at kiff.co.za, think that this is a slight disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web hosting packages. This implies that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual server, but at the same time need more power and features than a VPS web hosting server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'WebHostNinja' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to kiff.co.za, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'WebHostNinja' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' requirements, 'WebHostNinja' delivers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the web servers boast: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of website. In 'WebHostNinja's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from kiff.co.za, deem that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'WebHostNinja' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every server includes free invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers furnished by 'WebHostNinja' are all unmanaged. We, at kiff.co.za, think of this as a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web page hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (kiff.co.za's) prognosis is that the superb point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our (kiff.co.za's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'WebHostNinja' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
