An assessment of WebDisCode
We, at studio24nigeria.com, have selected 'WebDisCode' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we believe that this succinct evaluation of 'WebDisCode' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'WebDisCode' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'WebDisCode' in a few words:
Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions
The first detail we, at studio24nigeria.com, have noticed is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting services offered by 'WebDisCode'. 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 offered by 'WebDisCode' are powered by a custom created, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate set of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have colossal problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting distributors are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered site hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the hosting price really low (because lots of clients are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web space hosting package that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you spare funds that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still novel. Each site hosting plan delivered by 'WebDisCode' includes an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'WebDisCode' offers shared web hosting services in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, practically the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting solution at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'WebDisCode' are very well equipped and come at a very reasonable price (starting from $3.33 for the Startup plan).
Semi-dedicated Web Servers
To users with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'WebDisCode' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared plan via a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting package such as a free web site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include complete root-level access (we, at studio24nigeria.com, think that this is a slight defect), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This hints that a familiar graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a virtual server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a VPS web server can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which host the private virtual server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'WebDisCode' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $40.00 for the Mercury package.
Dedicated Web Servers
In studio24nigeria.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'WebDisCode' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' anticipations, 'WebDisCode' delivers a collection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'WebDisCode's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from studio24nigeria.com, believe that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'WebDisCode' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every hosting server includes free invoicing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'WebDisCode' are all unmanaged. We, at studio24nigeria.com, deem this a tiny minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (studio24nigeria.com's) forecast is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (studio24nigeria.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'WebDisCode' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $95.00 for the Xeon E3 v3 plan.
