A survey of KMedia Web Hosting

We, at dev.djangomagic.com, have selected 'KMedia Web Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. This is why we presume that this succinct evaluation of 'KMedia Web Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'KMedia Web Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'KMedia Web Hosting' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at dev.djangomagic.com, have perceived is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting services furnished by 'KMedia Web Hosting'. 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 hosting packages offered by 'KMedia Web Hosting' are powered by an in-house invented, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web hosting companies cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud webspace hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the site hosting price very low (because many clients utilize the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web page hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web space hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting package offered by 'KMedia Web Hosting' comes with an online web site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'KMedia Web Hosting' provides shared hosting plans in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire World is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting services furnished 'KMedia Web Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $2.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'KMedia Web Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to handling a regular shared web site hosting plan through a site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not offer complete root access (we, at dev.djangomagic.com, count this as a small minus), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web hosting CP user interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This indicates that a well-known graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a private virtual server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a Virtual Private Server can supply them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'KMedia Web Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In dev.djangomagic.com's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'KMedia Web Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' expectations, 'KMedia Web Hosting' delivers an array of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'KMedia Web Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from dev.djangomagic.com, consider that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'KMedia Web Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server comes with free billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'KMedia Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at dev.djangomagic.com, think of this as a tiny inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $31.49 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes various extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of website hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (dev.djangomagic.com's) forecast is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (dev.djangomagic.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'KMedia Web Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
