An evaluation of WebInAfrica

We, at empowerpage.com, have chosen 'WebInAfrica' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we believe that this short assessment of 'WebInAfrica' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'WebInAfrica' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'WebInAfrica' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at empowerpage.com, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting packages offered by 'WebInAfrica'. 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 packages offered by 'WebInAfrica' are powered by an in-house designed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a separate stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting firms are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the price very low (since multiple customers are located on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered site hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web space hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Hence, you save money that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still novel. Each and every website hosting account supplied by 'WebInAfrica' ships with an online site building tool and over forty widely used script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'WebInAfrica' supplies shared web hosting services in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'WebInAfrica' are really well equipped and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $4.00 for the Essentiel package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a private virtual server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'WebInAfrica' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a typical shared web space hosting package via a hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not include full root privileges (we, at empowerpage.com, consider this a minor disadvantage), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web space hosting CP tool as the shared web page hosting plans. This implies that a known graphical environment is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'WebInAfrica' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Tall package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to empowerpage.com, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'WebInAfrica' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' anticipations, 'WebInAfrica' delivers a selection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'WebInAfrica's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from empowerpage.com, believe that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'WebInAfrica' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every web server comes with free billing transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'WebInAfrica' are all unmanaged. We, at empowerpage.com, deem this a minor drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (empowerpage.com's) forecast is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our (empowerpage.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'WebInAfrica' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
