A review of Server Switch Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Server Switch Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we consider that this succinct evaluation of 'Server Switch Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Server Switch Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Server Switch Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting plans provided by 'Server Switch Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting packages furnished by 'Server Switch Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an individual pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting distributors are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the price amazingly low (since numerous clients utilize the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web page hosting plan that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. In this way, you save money that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web space hosting plan supplied by 'Server Switch Hosting' ships with an online site builder and over forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Server Switch Hosting' distributes shared website hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, practically the entire Earth is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Server Switch Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a low-cost price (beginning from $6.00 for the Simple plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual web server may appear hard to administer. That's perhaps why 'Server Switch Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a conventional shared web hosting account through a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated package is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When compared to a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server plans do not offer full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a small weakness), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same hosting CP tool as the shared packages. This means that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual private web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a VPS web server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Server Switch Hosting' can be classified as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Server Switch Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'Server Switch Hosting' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. In 'Server Switch Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'Server Switch Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each web server provides free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Server Switch Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Server Switch Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
