A review of EFWG Hosting

We, at kk4oxi.com, have selected 'EFWG Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this brief evaluation of 'EFWG Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'EFWG Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'EFWG Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at kk4oxi.com, have observed is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting plans supplied by 'EFWG Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts offered by 'EFWG Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an independent group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have huge difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based webspace hosting firms cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to construct their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by an actual cloud site hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the site hosting price very low (since multiple users use the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you spare money that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Each web page hosting account furnished by 'EFWG Hosting' offers an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'EFWG Hosting' offers shared web page hosting plans in a number of different countries across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'EFWG Hosting' are really well stocked and come at an attractive price (beginning from $3.00 for the Entry package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'EFWG Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a normal shared web space hosting account via a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When matched against a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not include root privileges (we, at kk4oxi.com, think that this is a slight negative point), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web page hosting CP tool as the shared website hosting accounts. This means that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual web server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual private web hosting server can supply them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'EFWG Hosting' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Base package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In kk4oxi.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful website hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'EFWG Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' expectations, 'EFWG Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable work of any type of website. According to 'EFWG Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from kk4oxi.com, consider that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'EFWG Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server ships with free billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'EFWG Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at kk4oxi.com, think that this is a slight negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (kk4oxi.com's) forecast is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP software futile. Our (kk4oxi.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'EFWG Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
