A review of Host Easy

We, at ocyr.com, have chosen 'Host Easy' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this brief assessment of 'Host Easy' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Host Easy' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Host Easy' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at ocyr.com, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web page hosting services furnished by 'Host Easy'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting packages delivered by 'Host Easy' are driven by a custom built, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a different group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have huge difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based website hosting suppliers are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must create their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud website hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the site hosting price really low (because multiple clients use the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered site hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful web site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you spare cash that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still novel. Each site hosting package supplied by 'Host Easy' boasts an online site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Host Easy' supplies shared web hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, virtually the entire World is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting services delivered 'Host Easy' are quite well stocked and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $3.25 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a VPS web server may seem difficult to manage. That's perhaps why 'Host Easy' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a regular shared hosting account through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting account such as a fee-free website building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not include complete root-level access (we, at ocyr.com, think that this is a little minus), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same Control Panel tool as the shared site hosting accounts. This means that a user-friendly graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual web hosting server can give them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Host Easy' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to ocyr.com, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'Host Easy' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Host Easy' delivers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and steady work of any type of website. In 'Host Easy's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from ocyr.com, consider that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Host Easy' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-charge invoicing software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Host Easy' are all unmanaged. We, at ocyr.com, think of this as a little defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of website hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ocyr.com's) forecast is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (ocyr.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Host Easy' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $75.00 for the Atom 2 package.
