A survey of Hardball Hosting

We, at phoneworld.us, have picked 'Hardball Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we presume that this brief assessment of 'Hardball Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Hardball Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hardball Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at phoneworld.us, have noticed is the inexpensive prices of the shared website hosting plans delivered by 'Hardball Hosting'. 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 web hosting accounts delivered by 'Hardball Hosting' are powered by an in-house designed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an independent host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting corporations are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud website hosting system. With a shared website hosting package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (since a lot of users are hosted on one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web space hosting account that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each and every web site hosting plan offered by 'Hardball Hosting' sports an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Hardball Hosting' provides shared webspace hosting plans in several different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, practically the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans offered 'Hardball Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $11.00 for the Business plan).

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In phoneworld.us's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Hardball Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Hardball Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any type of site. In 'Hardball Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from phoneworld.us, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'Hardball Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server includes free invoicing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Hardball Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at phoneworld.us, think of this as a little inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (phoneworld.us's) forecast is that the great point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP software program useless. Our (phoneworld.us's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Hardball Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c package.
