A review of BrentHost ''

We, at, have picked 'BrentHost ''' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we deem that this succinct assessment of 'BrentHost ''' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'BrentHost ''' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'BrentHost ''' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have seen is the low prices of the shared web hosting accounts supplied by 'BrentHost '''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages offered by 'BrentHost ''' are powered by an in-house created, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a separate bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have huge difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting distributors are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to build their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud site hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web space hosting price amazingly low (because numerous users are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end website hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your website expands. In this way, you save money that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each and every site hosting plan offered by 'BrentHost ''' offers an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'BrentHost ''' delivers shared hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the entire Globe is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting solution at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'BrentHost ''' are quite well appointed and are available at a very cheap price (beginning from $5.25 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'BrentHost ''' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a regular shared web hosting package through a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared account such as a fee-free site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting packages. When compared to a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not ship with full root-level access (we, at, deem this a slight negative point), but the good point is that they are administered through the same web site hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This implies that a known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual web server can supply them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'BrentHost ''' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'BrentHost ''' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' anticipations, 'BrentHost ''' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any type of site. According to 'BrentHost ''', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'BrentHost ''' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server provides free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers delivered by 'BrentHost ''' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes various supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'BrentHost ''' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
