A survey of KOS HOSTING
We, at koswebsite.com, have selected 'KOS HOSTING' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we think that this succinct evaluation of 'KOS HOSTING' is perchance going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'KOS HOSTING' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'KOS HOSTING' in a few words:
Shared Web Space Hosting Plans
The first thing we, at koswebsite.com, have noted is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting plans provided by 'KOS 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 web hosting plans delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' are driven by a custom created, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an individual set of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have big troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based site hosting vendors are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud hosting platform. With a shared plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of clients use one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web space hosting account that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your site grows. That way, you save cash that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Every webspace hosting plan delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' comes with an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'KOS HOSTING' delivers shared hosting plans in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'KOS HOSTING' are very well equipped and are available at an affordable price (beginning from €3.25 for the Starter package).
Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers
To clients with little to no practice, a virtual web server may seem difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'KOS HOSTING' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a normal shared web space hosting account via a site hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated account is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When compared with a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not ship with root-level access (we, at koswebsite.com, think that this is a little problem), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web page hosting plans. This goes to say that a user-friendly GUI is available to all customers who are not confident enough to administer a Virtual Private Server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual server can confer to them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'KOS HOSTING' can be labeled as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €19.99 for the Mini package.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
In koswebsite.com's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the guys from 'KOS HOSTING' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' demands, 'KOS HOSTING' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. According to 'KOS HOSTING', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from koswebsite.com, think that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server offers free-of-charge invoicing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' are all unmanaged. We, at koswebsite.com, consider this a small problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to €32.05 EUR. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (koswebsite.com's) forecast is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (koswebsite.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'KOS HOSTING' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from €117.53 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
