An assessment of SSDD Hosting

We, at lelinski.com, have selected 'SSDD Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we deem that this succinct evaluation of 'SSDD Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'SSDD Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'SSDD Hosting' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at lelinski.com, have spotted is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting services supplied by 'SSDD Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans furnished by 'SSDD Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent pack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered web hosting system. With a shared plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price amazingly low (since multiple clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Hence, you save capital that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting package furnished by 'SSDD Hosting' comes with an online web site builder and over forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'SSDD Hosting' distributes shared web space hosting plans in several different regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole World is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages provided 'SSDD Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a good price (beginning from $3.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem tough to manage. That's probably why 'SSDD Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to managing a typical shared web site hosting plan via a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free website builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated account is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared with a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not include complete server root access (we, at lelinski.com, regard this as a small problem), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web site hosting CP user interface as the shared packages. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'SSDD Hosting' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In lelinski.com's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'SSDD Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' anticipations, 'SSDD Hosting' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady performance of any kind of website. In 'SSDD Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from lelinski.com, consider that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'SSDD Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers provided by 'SSDD Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at lelinski.com, think that this is a slight weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $30.95 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (lelinski.com's) forecast is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (lelinski.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'SSDD Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $89.95 for the Atom 1 package.
