An evaluation of Bakhtiar Hosting

We, at secretleaf.my, have picked 'Bakhtiar Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we expect that this brief evaluation of 'Bakhtiar Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Bakhtiar Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Bakhtiar Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at secretleaf.my, have detected is the inexpensive prices of the shared web page hosting accounts offered by 'Bakhtiar Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'Bakhtiar Hosting' are driven by a custom built, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have big problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting suppliers cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to make their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered web hosting platform. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the web site hosting price really low (because lots of users utilize the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your website grows. So, you economize funds that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each webspace hosting account delivered by 'Bakhtiar Hosting' sports an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Bakhtiar Hosting' furnishes shared web hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the whole planet is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages provided 'Bakhtiar Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at an affordable price (beginning from $2.75 for the GetStarted plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Bakhtiar Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a standard shared web page hosting plan via a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include complete server root access (we, at secretleaf.my, consider this a little problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical environment is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a private virtual server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a VPS hosting server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Bakhtiar Hosting' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In secretleaf.my's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'Bakhtiar Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' demands, 'Bakhtiar Hosting' offers a collection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the web hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of web site. In 'Bakhtiar Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from secretleaf.my, think that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Bakhtiar Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'Bakhtiar Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at secretleaf.my, consider this a little downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (secretleaf.my's) forecast is that the superb point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (secretleaf.my's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Bakhtiar Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
