An assessment of Radspace

We, at, have chosen 'Radspace' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we anticipate that this succinct evaluation of 'Radspace' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Radspace' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Radspace' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have noticed is the cheap prices of the shared hosting solutions delivered by 'Radspace'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages offered by 'Radspace' are powered by a custom designed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting firms are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price really low (since many clients use the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed need, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny site hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you economize cash that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each web site hosting account delivered by 'Radspace' comes with an online website builder and over 40 popular script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Radspace' furnishes shared web space hosting accounts in several different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, almost the entire planet is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'Radspace' are quite well appointed and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $4.25 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Radspace' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a typical shared web hosting package via a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include full server root access (we, at, count this as a small downside), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same web site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web space hosting plans. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a virtual server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Radspace' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.
