A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we consider that this short evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the modest prices of the shared web hosting plans provided by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a different stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have great complications with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting providers are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of customers are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually need, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small website hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your online presence expands. In this way, you spare money that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still novel. Every website hosting package delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' arrives with an online website building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' furnishes shared web hosting plans in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the entire planet is covered to supply you and your visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting packages provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well stocked and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared site hosting plan via a web site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not come with root privileges (we, at, think of this as a minor negative point), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same website hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This means that a user-friendly GUI is accessible by all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and system resources than a private virtual server can offer. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of web site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every web server offers free invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of website hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
