A review of Provident Host

We, at jakartahomes.co.id, have picked 'Provident Host' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. This is why we deem that this succinct evaluation of 'Provident Host' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere fact is that 'Provident Host' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Provident Host' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at jakartahomes.co.id, have noted is the low prices of the shared web page hosting services furnished by 'Provident Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts offered by 'Provident Host' are powered by a custom created, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an independent stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have colossal predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting corporations cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must develop their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price very low (since lots of users are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually demand, averting a situation where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic site hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your site expands. Hence, you spare cash that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still new. Each and every website hosting package offered by 'Provident Host' offers an online site building tool and more than forty popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Provident Host' delivers shared website hosting packages in several different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, almost the whole Earth is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'Provident Host' are really well stocked and are available at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $4.25 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Provident Host' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to managing a normal shared website hosting plan via a web site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When compared to a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not arrive with full server root access (we, at jakartahomes.co.id, count this as a small minus), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting plans. This indicates that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS web hosting server, yet need more power and features than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Provident Host' can be categorized as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to jakartahomes.co.id, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Provident Host' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' demands, 'Provident Host' delivers a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of website. According to 'Provident Host', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from jakartahomes.co.id, consider that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Provident Host' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Provident Host' are all unmanaged. We, at jakartahomes.co.id, consider this a slight defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $35.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (jakartahomes.co.id's) prediction is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our (jakartahomes.co.id's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Provident Host' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
