A survey of AIDA Host

We, at, have selected 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we presume that this brief review of 'AIDA Host' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have noted is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting plans supplied by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts supplied by 'AIDA Host' are powered by a custom devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an independent host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have great difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting distributors are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must construct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the web site hosting price really low (since numerous clients use one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end site hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you economize capital that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting account delivered by 'AIDA Host' offers an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'AIDA Host' supplies shared web space hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, nearly the entire planet is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts offered 'AIDA Host' are really well appointed and come at a very good price (starting from $3.86 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual server may seem tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared webspace hosting package through a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting account such as a fee-free web site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not include server root access (we, at, think of this as a slight problem), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same website hosting CP tool as the shared plans. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to handle a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual web hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-end hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' can be labeled as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'AIDA Host' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'AIDA Host' delivers an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of site. According to 'AIDA Host', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages provided by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-charge billing software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a slight weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web page hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'AIDA Host' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Earth package.
