An evaluation of AIDA Host

We, at phamhoatv.com, have selected 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Hence we presume that this succinct review of 'AIDA Host' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at phamhoatv.com, have perceived is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting packages delivered by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an individual pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have huge problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting corporations are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud website hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since numerous clients use the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web hosting package that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your site grows. Thus, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Every web page hosting plan delivered by 'AIDA Host' contains an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'AIDA Host' offers shared web page hosting plans in several different countries across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the whole World is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting solution at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages supplied 'AIDA Host' are really well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $4.11 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to managing a standard shared web space hosting account through a CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not offer full root access (we, at phamhoatv.com, think of this as a tiny downside), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same CP GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This means that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all users who do not have enough confidence to manage a Virtual Private Server, yet demand more power and supplies than a virtual web server can confer to them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'AIDA Host' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In phamhoatv.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'AIDA Host' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' requirements, 'AIDA Host' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any kind of site. According to 'AIDA Host', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from phamhoatv.com, believe that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at phamhoatv.com, think of this as a slight inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (phamhoatv.com's) forecast is that the outstanding point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software pointless. Our (phamhoatv.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth package.
