A survey of SKC Hosting

We, at arctiqdevelopers.com, have picked 'SKC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we imagine that this concise assessment of 'SKC Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'SKC Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'SKC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at arctiqdevelopers.com, have perceived is the cheap prices of the shared hosting services offered by 'SKC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans supplied by 'SKC Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a separate group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web hosting firms cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered web site hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because numerous users use one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic site hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you save money that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every site hosting plan offered by 'SKC Hosting' offers an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'SKC Hosting' supplies shared website hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, almost the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and dependable site hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'SKC Hosting' are quite well appointed and are available at a budget price (starting from $3.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'SKC Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a standard shared hosting account via a site hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web page 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 name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include complete root access (we, at arctiqdevelopers.com, count this as a small inconvenience), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a VPS server can confer to them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'SKC Hosting' can be categorized as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to arctiqdevelopers.com, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'SKC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' anticipations, 'SKC Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'SKC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from arctiqdevelopers.com, think that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'SKC Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server offers free-of-cost billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'SKC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at arctiqdevelopers.com, think that this is a minor negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (arctiqdevelopers.com's) prognosis is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (arctiqdevelopers.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'SKC Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
