A survey of Snaphost Web Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Snaphost Web Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we anticipate that this brief review of 'Snaphost Web Hosting' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Snaphost Web Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Snaphost Web Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared hosting plans furnished by 'Snaphost Web 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 site hosting accounts offered by 'Snaphost Web Hosting' are driven by a custom created, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a different host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting platform. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of customers use the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered site hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your website expands. Thus, you spare capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each and every web hosting plan provided by 'Snaphost Web Hosting' offers an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Snaphost Web Hosting' furnishes shared web space hosting services in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, approximately the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Snaphost Web Hosting' are quite well equipped and come at a good price (beginning from C$6.04 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may appear tough to handle. That's probably why 'Snaphost Web Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared web hosting account via a web site hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting plan such as a free website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not offer full root access (we, at, think that this is a slight drawback), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This goes to say that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a private virtual web server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Snaphost Web Hosting' can be dubbed as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from C$27.92 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Snaphost Web Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its users' needs, 'Snaphost Web Hosting' delivers an assortment of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any type of site. According to 'Snaphost Web Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages offered by 'Snaphost Web Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each hosting server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Snaphost Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to C$55.10 CAD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Snaphost Web Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from C$59.80 for the Atom 2c package.
