A review of AIDA Host

We, at kacuna.com, have picked 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we think that this brief review of 'AIDA Host' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'AIDA Host' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at kacuna.com, have spotted is the reasonable prices of the shared hosting packages furnished by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by 'AIDA Host' are driven by a custom designed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have big complications with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting firms cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the webspace hosting price amazingly low (since numerous users use the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small site hosting plan that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web page hosting package provided by 'AIDA Host' offers an online site building tool and more than forty popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'AIDA Host' furnishes shared site hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the whole World is covered to provide you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting packages offered 'AIDA Host' are quite well stocked and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from $3.86 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to administering a standard shared site hosting account via a web space hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a fee-free web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When compared to a shared account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated plans do not ship with root access (we, at kacuna.com, deem this a slight drawback), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This means that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can supply them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In kacuna.com's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'AIDA Host' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' expectations, 'AIDA Host' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any type of site. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from kacuna.com, consider that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at kacuna.com, consider this a small negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (kacuna.com's) forecast is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our (kacuna.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Earth package.
