An assessment of WebSoft Solutions

We, at aalghamdi.sa, have selected 'WebSoft Solutions' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we anticipate that this short assessment of 'WebSoft Solutions' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'WebSoft Solutions' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'WebSoft Solutions' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at aalghamdi.sa, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared web hosting services delivered by 'WebSoft Solutions'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans delivered by 'WebSoft Solutions' are driven by a custom developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an autonomous set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have huge complications with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting suppliers are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (since numerous users share the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you spare capital that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting package provided by 'WebSoft Solutions' comprises an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'WebSoft Solutions' furnishes shared site hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, practically the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions provided 'WebSoft Solutions' are very well equipped and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from $3.25 for the Simple package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual server may seem tough to administer. That's probably why 'WebSoft Solutions' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a typical shared web page hosting account via a web site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space 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 web server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting accounts. When compared to a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not come with root-level access (we, at aalghamdi.sa, count this as a tiny defect), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can deliver. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'WebSoft Solutions' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In aalghamdi.sa's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'WebSoft Solutions' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' expectations, 'WebSoft Solutions' delivers an array of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the web hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'WebSoft Solutions's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from aalghamdi.sa, consider that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'WebSoft Solutions' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server ships with free billing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'WebSoft Solutions' are all unmanaged. We, at aalghamdi.sa, regard this as a minor weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of webspace hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (aalghamdi.sa's) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (aalghamdi.sa's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'WebSoft Solutions' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Phoenix package.
