An evaluation of GITS Web Hosting

We, at whattheflip.com.au, have selected 'GITS Web Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. This is why we anticipate that this concise review of 'GITS Web Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'GITS Web Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'GITS Web Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at whattheflip.com.au, have perceived is the modest prices of the shared web hosting plans offered by 'GITS Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans furnished by 'GITS Web Hosting' are driven by a custom developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an independent host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have immense difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting providers are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must devise their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the price really low (because numerous users are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a tiny website hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. So, you spare capital that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each site hosting package offered by 'GITS Web Hosting' arrives with an online website builder and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'GITS Web Hosting' offers shared web hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast hosting service at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'GITS Web Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a very good price (beginning from A$5.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a VPS may appear difficult to manage. That's perhaps why 'GITS Web Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to handling a normal shared site hosting account through a web hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated plans do not ship with complete root-level access (we, at whattheflip.com.au, deem this a little inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web hosting CP GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This suggests that a recognizable graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'GITS Web Hosting' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from A$28.67 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to whattheflip.com.au, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'GITS Web Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'GITS Web Hosting' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any type of web site. According to 'GITS Web Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from whattheflip.com.au, think that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'GITS Web Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server offers free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers delivered by 'GITS Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at whattheflip.com.au, consider this a minor minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to A$47.40 AUD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (whattheflip.com.au's) prognosis is that the remarkable point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (whattheflip.com.au's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'GITS Web Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from A$99.07 for the Atom 1 plan.
