A survey of HD Web Hosting

We, at, have selected 'HD Web Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we consider that this short evaluation of 'HD Web Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'HD Web Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'HD Web Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have perceived is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting packages supplied by 'HD Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans provided by 'HD Web Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a different bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have considerable difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting distributors cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to design their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price really low (since multiple customers share one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you save money that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each web site hosting plan offered by 'HD Web Hosting' sports an online site builder and over 40 popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'HD Web Hosting' distributes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, practically the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'HD Web Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a good price (beginning from $5.00 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'HD Web Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared web page hosting plan via a Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-charge website builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When compared to a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not ship with full root privileges (we, at, think that this is a small drawback), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same site hosting CP user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This implies that a well-known GUI is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'HD Web Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Budget Semi Dedicated package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'HD Web Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'HD Web Hosting' offers a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'HD Web Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs offered by 'HD Web Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-charge billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'HD Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of web page hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'HD Web Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $140.00 for the Xeon E5 v4 10c package.
