An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at newnorth.email, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we presume that this succinct assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at newnorth.email, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting services delivered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages provided by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by an in-house devised, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a separate host of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have mammoth predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered web page hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since numerous clients utilize one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a powerful web site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small web hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you save money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Each web hosting package furnished by 'NTC Hosting' comes with an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' supplies shared website hosting packages in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'NTC Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a very low price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS may appear tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared hosting plan through a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a fee-free website building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When matched against a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not come with complete root access (we, at newnorth.email, count this as a minor weakness), but the good point is that they are administered via the same web site hosting CP user interface as the shared site hosting plans. This implies that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and features than a Virtual Private Server can provide them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In newnorth.email's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' anticipations, 'NTC Hosting' provides a number of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from newnorth.email, deem that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server comes with free-of-cost billing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at newnorth.email, consider this a minor weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (newnorth.email's) forecast is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our (newnorth.email's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
