A review of Linux Hosts Inc.

We, at, have chosen 'Linux Hosts Inc.' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we believe that this succinct assessment of 'Linux Hosts Inc.' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Linux Hosts Inc.' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Linux Hosts Inc.' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have noted is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting packages offered by 'Linux Hosts Inc.'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans delivered by 'Linux Hosts Inc.' are powered by an in-house developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a separate bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have considerable troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to build their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud website hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (since lots of customers are hosted on the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. Thus, you economize funds that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still new. Each and every web hosting plan delivered by 'Linux Hosts Inc.' sports an online website builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Linux Hosts Inc.' furnishes shared website hosting plans in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole planet is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Linux Hosts Inc.' are really well equipped and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $6.25 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS web hosting server may appear difficult to administer. That's probably why 'Linux Hosts Inc.' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to handling a typical shared package via a web hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not arrive with full server root access (we, at, think of this as a small negative point), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This signifies that a known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a VPS can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Linux Hosts Inc.' can be defined as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $40.00 for the Tall plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Linux Hosts Inc.' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' requirements, 'Linux Hosts Inc.' supplies a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'Linux Hosts Inc.'s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Linux Hosts Inc.' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every web server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Linux Hosts Inc.' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Linux Hosts Inc.' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $90.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
