A review of HD Web Hosting

We, at, have selected 'HD Web Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. Hence we deem that this short evaluation of 'HD Web Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'HD Web Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'HD Web Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the low prices of the shared web page hosting solutions delivered by 'HD Web 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 site hosting packages supplied by 'HD Web Hosting' are powered by a custom created, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (because plenty of clients utilize one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web space hosting account that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you economize cash that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Every site hosting plan furnished by 'HD Web Hosting' comes with an online site builder and over 40 widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'HD Web Hosting' distributes shared site hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast website hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting packages supplied 'HD Web Hosting' are really well appointed and are available at a very good price (beginning from $5.00 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear difficult to manage. That's probably why 'HD Web Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a normal shared website hosting account through a web hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared with a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not arrive with full root access (we, at, think of this as a little inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed through the same website hosting CP interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This signifies that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to administer a VPS, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a virtual server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'HD Web Hosting' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Budget Semi Dedicated plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'HD Web Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' needs, 'HD Web Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of web site. In 'HD Web Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'HD Web Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server ships with free invoicing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'HD Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any FTP client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'HD Web Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $140.00 for the Xeon E5 v4 10c plan.
