An assessment of Xgen Hosting

We, at e-diary.org.in, have picked 'Xgen Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. This is why we think that this short review of 'Xgen Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Xgen Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Xgen Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at e-diary.org.in, have observed is the cheap prices of the shared web space hosting accounts furnished by 'Xgen Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting packages supplied by 'Xgen Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have great complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting firms cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to set up their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the price really low (since numerous customers utilize the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really require, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end web page hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a basic web page hosting package that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Every web site hosting plan delivered by 'Xgen Hosting' arrives with an online web site builder and over forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Xgen Hosting' delivers shared webspace hosting accounts in several different regions across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, almost the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast web hosting solution at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting services delivered 'Xgen Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at an excellent price (beginning from $3.58 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a VPS web server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Xgen Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a typical shared webspace hosting package through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free website builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not offer full root privileges (we, at e-diary.org.in, deem this a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same web space hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting packages. This implies that a familiar GUI is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual web hosting server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which host the private virtual web hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Xgen Hosting' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to e-diary.org.in, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Xgen Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' requirements, 'Xgen Hosting' offers a collection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Xgen Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from e-diary.org.in, deem that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Xgen Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web server ships with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Xgen Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at e-diary.org.in, regard this as a small downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (e-diary.org.in's) forecast is that the superb point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our (e-diary.org.in's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Xgen Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $45.00 for the Atom 2c package.
