A survey of Fast Cloud Server

We, at cemarng.org, have selected 'Fast Cloud Server' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Therefore we deem that this short assessment of 'Fast Cloud Server' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere fact is that 'Fast Cloud Server' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Fast Cloud Server' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at cemarng.org, have noted is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting packages supplied by 'Fast Cloud Server'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts provided by 'Fast Cloud Server' are driven by an in-house devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a different bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have mammoth problems with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting distributors cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered web page hosting system. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price very low (because numerous users share the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web space hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web space hosting account that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you economize funds that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still novel. Every web site hosting package provided by 'Fast Cloud Server' contains an online web site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Fast Cloud Server' offers shared site hosting packages in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the entire World is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting services offered 'Fast Cloud Server' are quite well stocked and are available at a budget price (beginning from $6.25 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'Fast Cloud Server' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared web space hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared account such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not arrive with full root privileges (we, at cemarng.org, think that this is a little drawback), but the good point is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting accounts. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS web hosting server, yet need more power and resources than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Fast Cloud Server' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $40.00 for the Mini package.

Dedicated Servers

In cemarng.org's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Fast Cloud Server' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' demands, 'Fast Cloud Server' offers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. According to 'Fast Cloud Server', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from cemarng.org, think that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Fast Cloud Server' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each web server comes with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Fast Cloud Server' are all unmanaged. We, at cemarng.org, think that this is a little inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $36.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes various extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cemarng.org's) prediction is that the splendid point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our (cemarng.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Fast Cloud Server' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $45.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
