An assessment of Hosting Gators

We, at, have selected 'Hosting Gators' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Hence we think that this succinct evaluation of 'Hosting Gators' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Hosting Gators' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Hosting Gators' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared website hosting solutions furnished by 'Hosting Gators'. 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 accounts delivered by 'Hosting Gators' are powered by an in-house developed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an individual group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have enormous complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based website hosting providers are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered web space hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web site hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your site expands. That way, you spare capital that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each and every website hosting account supplied by 'Hosting Gators' contains an online site builder and more than 40 popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Hosting Gators' furnishes shared web page hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and fast web site hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'Hosting Gators' are quite well furnished and are available at a budget price (beginning from $2.75 for the Economy package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'Hosting Gators' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared web site hosting plan through a web site hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting packages. When matched against a shared account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not include root-level access (we, at, think that this is a minor minus), but the good point is that they are managed through the same hosting CP GUI as the shared web site hosting accounts. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, yet require more power and features than a VPS server can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Hosting Gators' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Pro plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Hosting Gators' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' needs, 'Hosting Gators' offers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'Hosting Gators's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Hosting Gators' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server offers free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Hosting Gators' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a tiny minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Hosting Gators' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $90.00 for the Atom 1 package.
