A review of Pixalogy Hosting

We, at slocat.org, have selected 'Pixalogy Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we anticipate that this brief review of 'Pixalogy Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'Pixalogy Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Pixalogy Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at slocat.org, have detected is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting solutions furnished by 'Pixalogy Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting accounts furnished by 'Pixalogy Hosting' are driven by a custom devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an individual bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting suppliers are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered hosting solution. With a shared plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the webspace hosting price amazingly low (because multiple customers are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you really need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end hosting plan that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you spare funds that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each and every web space hosting account furnished by 'Pixalogy Hosting' contains an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Pixalogy Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting services in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting solution at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'Pixalogy Hosting' are really well appointed and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $2.77 for the Entry plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may appear complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'Pixalogy Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a standard shared web space hosting package via a web hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not arrive with root access (we, at slocat.org, think that this is a slight disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting packages. This hints that a familiar GUI is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a VPS hosting server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Pixalogy Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to slocat.org, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Pixalogy Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' anticipations, 'Pixalogy Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Pixalogy Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from slocat.org, think that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Pixalogy Hosting' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server offers free-of-cost billing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Pixalogy Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at slocat.org, think that this is a small weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (slocat.org's) prediction is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our (slocat.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Pixalogy Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Phoenix package.
