A survey of Host Vegas

We, at, have chosen 'Host Vegas' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we deem that this succinct assessment of 'Host Vegas' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Host Vegas' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Host Vegas' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting accounts provided by 'Host Vegas'. 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 site hosting packages furnished by 'Host Vegas' are driven by an in-house devised, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have mammoth complications with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to design their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by a real cloud hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price amazingly low (because lots of clients are hosted on one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered site hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a powerful web page hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web space hosting package furnished by 'Host Vegas' contains an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Host Vegas' furnishes shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'Host Vegas' are very well stocked and come at a low-cost price (starting from $5.00 for the Shared Special package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual web hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Host Vegas' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a standard shared website hosting plan through a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a free web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When compared to a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not include complete server root access (we, at, think of this as a small weak point), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same website hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This implies that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual private web server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a Virtual Private Server can supply them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Host Vegas' can be classified 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, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Host Vegas' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'Host Vegas' supplies a collection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Host Vegas', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Host Vegas' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server provides free-of-cost billing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Host Vegas' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a small problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the recourse to any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Host Vegas' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
