A review of Malta Hosting

We, at gozobusiness.com, have selected 'Malta Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we anticipate that this concise evaluation of 'Malta Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Malta Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Malta Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at gozobusiness.com, have detected is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting accounts supplied by 'Malta Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans furnished by 'Malta Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a different bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have enormous complications with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered web hosting solution. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the web site hosting price amazingly low (since numerous users share the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting system, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you actually demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a small hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your online presence grows. In this way, you spare money that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting package furnished by 'Malta Hosting' includes an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Malta Hosting' delivers shared web space hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Malta Hosting' are quite well stocked and are available at a very attractive price (beginning from €3.25 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Malta Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a standard shared web site hosting plan via a Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a free website builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting packages. When matched against a shared web space hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not ship with server root access (we, at gozobusiness.com, think of this as a slight defect), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same web hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This means that a well-known graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a private virtual hosting server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can give them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Malta Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In gozobusiness.com's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Malta Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'Malta Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'Malta Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from gozobusiness.com, deem that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'Malta Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server comes with free invoice transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Malta Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at gozobusiness.com, consider this a slight negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of €31.15 EUR. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (gozobusiness.com's) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our (gozobusiness.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Malta Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from €63.37 for the Atom 1 package.
