An assessment of OBS Hosting Services

We, at obsnetsuite.com, have selected 'OBS Hosting Services' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. This is why we presume that this succinct assessment of 'OBS Hosting Services' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'OBS Hosting Services' presently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'OBS Hosting Services' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at obsnetsuite.com, have perceived is the inexpensive prices of the shared web page hosting packages provided by 'OBS Hosting Services'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting packages provided by 'OBS Hosting Services' are driven by an in-house invented, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an autonomous set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have big problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting corporations are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price very low (because lots of clients are located on the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web page hosting package that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your site grows. So, you save money that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting package provided by 'OBS Hosting Services' boasts an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'OBS Hosting Services' offers shared webspace hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions provided 'OBS Hosting Services' are quite well stocked and come at a very low price (starting from $3.75 for the Tiny plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'OBS Hosting Services' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared webspace hosting package through a Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not offer root-level access (we, at obsnetsuite.com, count this as a tiny drawback), but the advantage is that they are administered via the very same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting packages. This hints that a known graphical interface is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'OBS Hosting Services' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Mini package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In obsnetsuite.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'OBS Hosting Services' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' needs, 'OBS Hosting Services' offers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of web site. According to 'OBS Hosting Services', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from obsnetsuite.com, believe that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'OBS Hosting Services' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each server comes with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'OBS Hosting Services' are all unmanaged. We, at obsnetsuite.com, count this as a tiny downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (obsnetsuite.com's) prognosis is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our (obsnetsuite.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'OBS Hosting Services' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
