A review of Free Hostia

We, at, have chosen 'Free Hostia' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Therefore we deem that this concise evaluation of 'Free Hostia' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Free Hostia' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Free Hostia' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting plans provided by 'Free Hostia'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts provided by 'Free Hostia' are driven by an in-house invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an individual set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting firms are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to concoct their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered site hosting system. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price really low (because lots of customers use one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web page hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. In this way, you economize money that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each web site hosting plan furnished by 'Free Hostia' includes an online site builder and more than forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Free Hostia' distributes shared web hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Free Hostia' are really well equipped and are available at a very low price (starting from $0.00 for the Chocolate package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Free Hostia' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to managing a regular shared web space hosting account through a site hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not ship with full root privileges (we, at, think of this as a little problem), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared accounts. This indicates that a known GUI is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and features than a virtual web server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Free Hostia' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $29.95 for the Boabab package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Free Hostia' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' requirements, 'Free Hostia' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'Free Hostia's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Free Hostia' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each server arrives with free invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Free Hostia' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the outstanding point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Free Hostia' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $139.95 for the Arctic package.
