A review of Hardball Hosting

We, at naptownbattleground.com, have chosen 'Hardball Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. This is why we consider that this brief assessment of 'Hardball Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Hardball Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hardball Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at naptownbattleground.com, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared web page hosting solutions offered by 'Hardball Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages delivered by 'Hardball Hosting' are powered by an in-house invented, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an independent host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have immense difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting companies are not able to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the price amazingly low (since a lot of users share the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. So, you spare cash that you can spend on promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every webspace hosting account supplied by 'Hardball Hosting' comprises an online website builder and more than forty popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Hardball Hosting' offers shared hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast web hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Hardball Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $8.75 for the Business plan).

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In naptownbattleground.com's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Hardball Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' demands, 'Hardball Hosting' supplies an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the web servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of website. According to 'Hardball Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from naptownbattleground.com, deem that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Hardball Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Hardball Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at naptownbattleground.com, think of this as a tiny defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (naptownbattleground.com's) prognosis is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our (naptownbattleground.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Hardball Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
