A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we think that this short evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting plans furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting packages supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a separate pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have great problems with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud website hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the website hosting price amazingly low (since numerous clients share one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web page hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web page hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The option 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 online presence grows. In this way, you spare money that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each and every site hosting plan offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' arrives with an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies shared webspace hosting services in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well furnished and are available at a very cheap price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may appear complicated to administer. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to administering a standard shared hosting plan through a web site hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting plan such as a fee-free web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When matched against a shared webspace hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated packages do not include root-level access (we, at, deem this a slight problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the same hosting CP interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as every web server offers free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a minor problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of webspace hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD package.
