A survey of JoshWho Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'JoshWho Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting provider. This is why we think that this brief evaluation of 'JoshWho Hosting' is perchance going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'JoshWho Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'JoshWho Hosting' in short:

Shared Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have spotted is the inexpensive prices of the shared hosting services provided by 'JoshWho Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts offered by 'JoshWho Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have big problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting companies are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered site hosting system. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous customers share the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web page hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you actually require, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end webspace hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you save cash that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still brand new. Every web page hosting package provided by 'JoshWho Hosting' contains an online site builder and more than 40 widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'JoshWho Hosting' furnishes shared webspace hosting services in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the whole World is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting plans supplied 'JoshWho Hosting' are very well appointed and come at an excellent price (starting from $3.08 for the Small Starter Cloud plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why 'JoshWho Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a normal shared webspace hosting account via a hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not arrive with server root access (we, at, think of this as a slight minus), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same CP tool as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This indicates that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all clients who are not confident enough to handle a private virtual server, yet need more power and resources than a VPS can provide them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'JoshWho Hosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $40.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'JoshWho Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' needs, 'JoshWho Hosting' offers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the dedicated servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of website. In 'JoshWho Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs offered by 'JoshWho Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'JoshWho Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a slight weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web space hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'JoshWho Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $37.00 for the Dedicated Atom 1 package.
