A review of ThouHost

We, at woaen.com, have selected 'ThouHost' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we believe that this succinct evaluation of 'ThouHost' is perchance going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'ThouHost' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering practically the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'ThouHost' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at woaen.com, have discerned is the cut-rate prices of the shared web hosting accounts supplied by 'ThouHost'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting accounts delivered by 'ThouHost' are powered by a custom invented, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a separate group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have considerable problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting corporations cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered website hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price very low (because a lot of clients use one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web space hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web page hosting plan that cannot shelter your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your site expands. That way, you spare cash that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still novel. Every website hosting account provided by 'ThouHost' offers an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'ThouHost' provides shared web page hosting packages in a number of different countries across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, approximately the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting solution at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting packages supplied 'ThouHost' are really well stocked and are available at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $5.92 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'ThouHost' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared web hosting plan through a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting account such as a fee-free site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not come with complete server root access (we, at woaen.com, think of this as a slight problem), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly GUI is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and reserves than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'ThouHost' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $40.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to woaen.com, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'ThouHost' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' anticipations, 'ThouHost' offers an array of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any type of site. In 'ThouHost's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from woaen.com, consider that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'ThouHost' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every web server provides free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'ThouHost' are all unmanaged. We, at woaen.com, think that this is a slight defect, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (woaen.com's) prognosis is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP software futile. Our (woaen.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'ThouHost' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $45.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
