An evaluation of Ram Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Ram Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we expect that this brief review of 'Ram Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Ram Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Ram Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared site hosting packages offered by 'Ram Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts furnished by 'Ram Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an individual set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have great complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting providers are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to make their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered website hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (because lots of clients share the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered site hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web space hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a small web space hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web site expands. So, you spare money that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting account offered by 'Ram Hosting' arrives with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Ram Hosting' supplies shared web site hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, practically the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'Ram Hosting' are really well stocked and come at a good price (beginning from $3.00 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual private web server may appear tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'Ram Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a conventional shared hosting package through a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared website hosting plan such as a free web site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not offer root-level access (we, at, think that this is a minor minus), but the good point is that they are administered via the same webspace hosting Control Panel interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This hints that a well-known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a VPS web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Ram Hosting' can be defined as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Manager plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'Ram Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' demands, 'Ram Hosting' delivers a selection of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'Ram Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Ram Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge billing software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Ram Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers various supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Ram Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
