A survey of WiseHost.ca

We, at bimakin.com, have chosen 'WiseHost.ca' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we consider that this succinct assessment of 'WiseHost.ca' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'WiseHost.ca' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'WiseHost.ca' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at bimakin.com, have detected is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting solutions provided by 'WiseHost.ca'. 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 space hosting accounts supplied by 'WiseHost.ca' are driven by a custom invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have huge troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting suppliers are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to make their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud website hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the site hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of customers share one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web site hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your website expands. So, you save capital that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still new. Every web site hosting account supplied by 'WiseHost.ca' comprises an online site builder and over forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'WiseHost.ca' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'WiseHost.ca' are quite well furnished and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $4.66 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a private virtual web server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'WiseHost.ca' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared website hosting package via a webspace hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server plan is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated plans do not include full root privileges (we, at bimakin.com, deem this a slight inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed via the same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting plans. This goes to say that a well-known graphical interface is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a Virtual Private Server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful cutting edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'WiseHost.ca' can be labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In bimakin.com's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'WiseHost.ca' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'WiseHost.ca' delivers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of website. According to 'WiseHost.ca', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from bimakin.com, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'WiseHost.ca' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server provides free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'WiseHost.ca' are all unmanaged. We, at bimakin.com, count this as a slight weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $33.95 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (bimakin.com's) forecast is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (bimakin.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'WiseHost.ca' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $45.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
