A survey of Just-Hosts

We, at brittanylocation.com, have selected 'Just-Hosts' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we consider that this short assessment of 'Just-Hosts' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Just-Hosts' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Just-Hosts' in short:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at brittanylocation.com, have perceived is the low prices of the shared hosting accounts delivered by 'Just-Hosts'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages delivered by 'Just-Hosts' are powered by an in-house devised, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a separate stack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have big complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting distributors cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web site hosting price very low (because plenty of customers utilize the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a tiny webspace hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you save cash that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each web hosting account furnished by 'Just-Hosts' boasts an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Just-Hosts' distributes shared site hosting plans in several different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast web hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'Just-Hosts' are quite well equipped and come at a budget price (starting from $2.90 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a virtual server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Just-Hosts' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a regular shared hosting plan through a web space hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting packages. When compared to a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not include root-level access (we, at brittanylocation.com, deem this a slight defect), but the advantage is that they are managed through the very same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This goes to say that a well-known graphical environment is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web server, yet need more power and features than a Virtual Private Server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful high-end hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Just-Hosts' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Servers

In brittanylocation.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Just-Hosts' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' anticipations, 'Just-Hosts' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of site. In 'Just-Hosts's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from brittanylocation.com, believe that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Just-Hosts' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every server offers free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Just-Hosts' are all unmanaged. We, at brittanylocation.com, think of this as a tiny defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (brittanylocation.com's) prediction is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our (brittanylocation.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Just-Hosts' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $45.00 for the Atom 2c package.
