A survey of ASCONWEB Services

We, at artwyn.com, have picked 'ASCONWEB Services' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Therefore we presume that this short assessment of 'ASCONWEB Services' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'ASCONWEB Services' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'ASCONWEB Services' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at artwyn.com, have observed is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting services furnished by 'ASCONWEB Services'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting accounts delivered by 'ASCONWEB Services' are driven by a custom created, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have enormous problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting corporations cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (because multiple users share one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web space hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful website hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic hosting account that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you save money that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Each hosting plan offered by 'ASCONWEB Services' offers an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'ASCONWEB Services' distributes shared web site hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, practically the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'ASCONWEB Services' are quite well stocked and are available at an excellent price (beginning from $2.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'ASCONWEB Services' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared web site hosting plan through a web page hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting account such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not include full server root access (we, at artwyn.com, regard this as a tiny defect), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web hosting CP interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical interface is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a private virtual server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'ASCONWEB Services' can be defined as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In artwyn.com's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful website hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'ASCONWEB Services' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'ASCONWEB Services' offers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'ASCONWEB Services', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from artwyn.com, consider that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'ASCONWEB Services' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'ASCONWEB Services' are all unmanaged. We, at artwyn.com, regard this as a tiny problem, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (artwyn.com's) prediction is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our (artwyn.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'ASCONWEB Services' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $75.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
