A survey of Str Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Str Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this brief review of 'Str Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'Str Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Str Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have perceived is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting plans delivered by 'Str Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages offered by 'Str Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a different host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must construct their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (because multiple users share the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud website hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting account delivered by 'Str Hosting' contains an online website builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Str Hosting' distributes shared web page hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole World is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting service at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Str Hosting' are really well furnished and are available at a good price (beginning from $3.75 for the Business package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a private virtual server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Str Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to administering a conventional shared web page hosting plan via a web page hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When matched against a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 130 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at, regard this as a slight negative point), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same Control Panel user interface as the shared accounts. This suggests that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a private virtual web server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-class hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Str Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi Dedicated 2 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Str Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' expectations, 'Str Hosting' provides a selection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the web servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'Str Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Str Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Str Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Str Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
