An assessment of iStudio Cloud Hosting

We, at, have selected 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we imagine that this succinct evaluation of 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing approximately the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' in brief:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting plans supplied by 'iStudio Cloud Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans delivered by 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' are driven by a custom built, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an autonomous group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to build their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web space hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the price very low (since numerous clients are located on the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you save cash that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each web page hosting account furnished by 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' contains an online website building tool and more than forty popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' provides shared hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole World is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and reliable hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions offered 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a very attractive price (starting from $5.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual server may seem problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared plan through a hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting accounts. When compared to a shared webspace hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not offer full server root privileges (we, at, think of this as a little defect), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting accounts. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all users who are not confident enough to handle a virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and resources than a virtual server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $25.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' anticipations, 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' delivers a selection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of site. According to 'iStudio Cloud Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server packages provided by 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server arrives with free-of-cost billing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'iStudio Cloud Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
