An evaluation of IT RADIATION

We, at mydesertsafari.com, have picked 'IT RADIATION' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Hence we suppose that this short review of 'IT RADIATION' is probably going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'IT RADIATION' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'IT RADIATION' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at mydesertsafari.com, have noted is the modest prices of the shared web hosting plans supplied by 'IT RADIATION'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting accounts furnished by 'IT RADIATION' are driven by a custom designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a separate stack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have big troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting suppliers are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to set up their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered website hosting solution. With a shared plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price very low (because many clients utilize the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually demand, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you save money that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each and every web hosting account offered by 'IT RADIATION' includes an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'IT RADIATION' supplies shared web site hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'IT RADIATION' are really well furnished and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $7.50 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may appear complicated to administer. That's probably why 'IT RADIATION' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a conventional shared web site hosting account via a website hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When matched against a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not include complete server root access (we, at mydesertsafari.com, deem this a little defect), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared web hosting packages. This goes to say that a well-known graphical environment is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a VPS, but at the same time need more power and features than a private virtual hosting server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'IT RADIATION' can be defined as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In mydesertsafari.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'IT RADIATION' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' anticipations, 'IT RADIATION' delivers a selection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'IT RADIATION's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from mydesertsafari.com, deem that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'IT RADIATION' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server includes free invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'IT RADIATION' are all unmanaged. We, at mydesertsafari.com, consider this a minor disadvantage, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (mydesertsafari.com's) prognosis is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably render the use of any FTP software useless. Our (mydesertsafari.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'IT RADIATION' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
