A review of Lefkada Hosting

We, at web-moods.com, have chosen 'Lefkada Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we presume that this short review of 'Lefkada Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Lefkada Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lefkada Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at web-moods.com, have seen is the affordable prices of the shared website hosting accounts supplied by 'Lefkada Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts provided by 'Lefkada Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a different bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have considerable complications with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting firms are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to construct their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by a real cloud site hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the hosting price very low (because multiple customers use one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a basic web space hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you spare money that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still new. Every website hosting plan offered by 'Lefkada Hosting' ships with an online site builder and more than forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lefkada Hosting' supplies shared web hosting packages in several different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Lefkada Hosting' are really well stocked and come at a very modest price (beginning from £4.67 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why 'Lefkada Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a regular shared web space hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared with a shared account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not offer complete root access (we, at web-moods.com, think of this as a tiny minus), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same web site hosting CP GUI as the shared accounts. This hints that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lefkada Hosting' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In web-moods.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Lefkada Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'Lefkada Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. According to 'Lefkada Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from web-moods.com, think that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Lefkada Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-cost billing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Lefkada Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at web-moods.com, count this as a little weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of £25.72 GBP. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (web-moods.com's) forecast is that the excellent point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our (web-moods.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lefkada Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from £56.65 for the Atom 1 package.
