An evaluation of ADIN Hosting

We, at africanblockchain.org, have picked 'ADIN Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this short assessment of 'ADIN Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'ADIN Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'ADIN Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at africanblockchain.org, have detected is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting plans furnished by 'ADIN Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting packages supplied by 'ADIN Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a different group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have great troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting providers are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud web hosting system. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (because many customers are hosted on one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a basic web site hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence expands. That way, you spare cash that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still new. Every web site hosting plan provided by 'ADIN Hosting' ships with an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'ADIN Hosting' provides shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting service at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'ADIN Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a budget price (starting from $2.78 for the Economy package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS web server may appear problematic to administer. That's probably why 'ADIN Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a normal shared hosting plan through a hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting packages. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not arrive with root access (we, at africanblockchain.org, consider this a little weak point), but the plus is that they are managed via the same hosting CP user interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This signifies that a user-friendly GUI is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private hosting server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'ADIN Hosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Mercury plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to africanblockchain.org, huge sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'ADIN Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'ADIN Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of website. In 'ADIN Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from africanblockchain.org, believe that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'ADIN Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every server offers free invoicing software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'ADIN Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at africanblockchain.org, think that this is a slight defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (africanblockchain.org's) prediction is that the remarkable point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our (africanblockchain.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'ADIN Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
