A survey of Waffihosting

We, at, have selected 'Waffihosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we suppose that this concise review of 'Waffihosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'Waffihosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Waffihosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have detected is the budget prices of the shared site hosting plans supplied by 'Waffihosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans supplied by 'Waffihosting' are powered by an in-house designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have big troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting distributors are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered website hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price very low (because numerous clients are located on the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a small site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you economize capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each webspace hosting package offered by 'Waffihosting' contains an online site building tool and over forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Waffihosting' distributes shared hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting service at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages furnished 'Waffihosting' are quite well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (starting from £3.38 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual web server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Waffihosting' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a regular shared hosting plan via a web page hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When compared to a shared webspace hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not come with complete root-level access (we, at, deem this a small drawback), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same website hosting CP user interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This suggests that a known graphical interface is accessible by all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a VPS web server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Waffihosting' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from £16.68 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'Waffihosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' needs, 'Waffihosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'Waffihosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Waffihosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server includes free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'Waffihosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of £26.69 GBP. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Waffihosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from £33.36 for the Atom 2c plan.
