An evaluation of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this short evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing practically the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared site hosting packages furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a different group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting companies are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered web hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web space hosting price really low (because plenty of customers use the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered site hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a basic site hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Thus, you save funds that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each web space hosting package supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' sports an online website building tool and over 40 popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers shared hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole World is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a very good price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS server may seem complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a regular shared web site hosting package via a site hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When compared to a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, regard this as a slight defect), but the good point is that they are managed through the same Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This means that a familiar GUI is offered to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and features than a Virtual Private Server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Exclusive Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server includes free-of-charge billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia CP will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
