An evaluation of 100WebSpace

We, at, have chosen '100WebSpace' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. Hence we believe that this succinct review of '100WebSpace' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that '100WebSpace' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '100WebSpace' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting services furnished by '100WebSpace'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans offered by '100WebSpace' are powered by a custom invented, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a different stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have huge troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting corporations cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to set up their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price amazingly low (because numerous clients are located on one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web page hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web site hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny hosting plan that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you save funds that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Each web site hosting plan offered by '100WebSpace' boasts an online website building tool and over forty widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. '100WebSpace' distributes shared web site hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting solution at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages supplied '100WebSpace' are really well stocked and come at a good price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear difficult to administer. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to managing a regular shared website hosting account through a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a free website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not arrive with full root-level access (we, at, regard this as a tiny defect), but the plus is that they are administered through the same hosting CP tool as the shared site hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a private virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the VPS plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from '100WebSpace' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' needs, '100WebSpace' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any type of site. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications provided by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every server offers free-of-charge billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a tiny downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Optimus plan.
