An evaluation of SecureBox Hosting

We, at diaztiempos.com, have selected 'SecureBox Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. Hence we think that this concise review of 'SecureBox Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'SecureBox Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'SecureBox Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at diaztiempos.com, have spotted is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting plans supplied by 'SecureBox Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans supplied by 'SecureBox Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have enormous predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting distributors are unable to include additional 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 the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered web page hosting solution. With a shared hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the webspace hosting price really low (since numerous customers share the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really need, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you economize funds that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Every website hosting plan furnished by 'SecureBox Hosting' comprises an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'SecureBox Hosting' furnishes shared web hosting solutions in several different regions across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting solution at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'SecureBox Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a very affordable price (starting from $4.42 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual web server may appear complicated to manage. That's probably why 'SecureBox Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a regular shared web hosting plan via a hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When matched against a shared web site hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not offer complete server root access (we, at diaztiempos.com, count this as a little problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This signifies that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'SecureBox Hosting' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi-dedicated L plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to diaztiempos.com, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'SecureBox Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' needs, 'SecureBox Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers ship with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'SecureBox Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from diaztiempos.com, consider that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'SecureBox Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every web server provides free invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'SecureBox Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at diaztiempos.com, think of this as a tiny weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (diaztiempos.com's) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (diaztiempos.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'SecureBox Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $43.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
