An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we believe that this short review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing almost the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have observed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web page hosting plans delivered by 'Exclusive 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 site hosting plans provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom invented, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a different set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have enormous difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting firms cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to make their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the site hosting price really low (because plenty of users are located on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web space hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you spare cash that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Each and every web space hosting package offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' offers an online site builder and over forty popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' furnishes shared web space hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the whole planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at an excellent price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a VPS server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a regular shared web space hosting package through a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When matched against a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not come with full server root access (we, at, deem this a tiny minus), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This hints that a user-friendly graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a Virtual Private Server, yet are in need of more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Exclusive Hosting' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server includes free-of-charge billing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a minor problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
