An evaluation of Gigantic Server

We, at npi-news.dk, have picked 'Gigantic Server' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this short assessment of 'Gigantic Server' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Gigantic Server' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Gigantic Server' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at npi-news.dk, have perceived is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting plans supplied by 'Gigantic Server'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages supplied by 'Gigantic Server' are powered by an in-house designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting firms are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must invent their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the site hosting price really low (since many users utilize the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you save cash that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web space hosting plan furnished by 'Gigantic Server' comes with an online web site building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Gigantic Server' distributes shared website hosting services in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting services provided 'Gigantic Server' are quite well appointed and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $5.83 for the Economy package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS web server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Gigantic Server' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a normal shared hosting account via a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When compared with a shared plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not arrive with root-level access (we, at npi-news.dk, count this as a small disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web page hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared accounts. This indicates that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a VPS web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and features than a VPS web server can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Gigantic Server' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Galaxy plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In npi-news.dk's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Gigantic Server' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' needs, 'Gigantic Server' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any type of site. In 'Gigantic Server's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from npi-news.dk, consider that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Gigantic Server' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every web server offers free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Gigantic Server' are all unmanaged. We, at npi-news.dk, regard this as a little drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $36.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (npi-news.dk's) forecast is that the amazing point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our (npi-news.dk's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Gigantic Server' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $100.00 for the Atom 1 package.
