A survey of MyGreatHost

We, at, have chosen 'MyGreatHost' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Hence we suppose that this brief assessment of 'MyGreatHost' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'MyGreatHost' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'MyGreatHost' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have seen is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting packages provided by 'MyGreatHost'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages offered by 'MyGreatHost' are driven by a custom developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a separate group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have enormous difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price very low (since multiple customers share one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end web page hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web page hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you economize funds that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each and every site hosting plan provided by 'MyGreatHost' boasts an online website building tool and over forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'MyGreatHost' offers shared web hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole World is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting solution at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'MyGreatHost' are very well equipped and come at a very cheap price (starting from $4.50 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may seem difficult to handle. That's probably why 'MyGreatHost' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to handling a regular shared webspace hosting plan via a web site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not include root privileges (we, at, think of this as a small weakness), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same Control Panel interface as the shared web hosting plans. This implies that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual private web server, but at the same time require more power and features than a virtual hosting server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the private virtual server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'MyGreatHost' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $40.00 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'MyGreatHost' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' needs, 'MyGreatHost' offers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'MyGreatHost's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'MyGreatHost' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each web server arrives with free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by 'MyGreatHost' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly make the use of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'MyGreatHost' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $95.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
