A survey of GLEAHON

We, at sanviegreen.co.uk, have chosen 'GLEAHON' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. Hence we deem that this brief review of 'GLEAHON' is probably going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'GLEAHON' presently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'GLEAHON' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at sanviegreen.co.uk, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared web site hosting solutions offered by 'GLEAHON'. 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 hosting packages supplied by 'GLEAHON' are powered by an in-house designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a different group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have big complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting distributors are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud website hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (because many clients use the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually need, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web site hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your web site grows. So, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting account offered by 'GLEAHON' comes with an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'GLEAHON' offers shared web hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the whole Globe is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable hosting service at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'GLEAHON' are really well appointed and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from $6.00 for the GLEAHON PRO package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual server may appear tough to manage. That's probably why 'GLEAHON' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a normal shared web hosting package through a web site hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free web site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When matched against a shared webspace hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 130 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated packages do not include full server root access (we, at sanviegreen.co.uk, consider this a minor drawback), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting CP tool as the shared webspace hosting plans. This indicates that a familiar graphical user interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to handle a VPS web server, yet need more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'GLEAHON' can be classified as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi Dedicated 2 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In sanviegreen.co.uk's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'GLEAHON' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' requirements, 'GLEAHON' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'GLEAHON', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from sanviegreen.co.uk, consider that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'GLEAHON' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every hosting server includes free billing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'GLEAHON' are all unmanaged. We, at sanviegreen.co.uk, think of this as a minor weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sanviegreen.co.uk's) forecast is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly make the use of any FTP client futile. Our (sanviegreen.co.uk's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'GLEAHON' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
