A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Hence we anticipate that this concise evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have perceived is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting solutions offered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting plans provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by a custom built, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting providers are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must devise their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered website hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web site hosting price very low (since lots of clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web page hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you economize money that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still new. Each web hosting account supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' comes with an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' provides shared site hosting plans in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well furnished and are available at an attractive price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS may seem troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to managing a standard shared website hosting plan through a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting account such as a free website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated plans do not include server root access (we, at, consider this a small drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same site hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual web server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server includes free invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a little problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of website hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
