run by 'DLive'

A review of DLive

We, at wbugadmission.com, have chosen 'DLive' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Therefore we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'DLive' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'DLive' presently offers domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'DLive' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at wbugadmission.com, have perceived is the inexpensive prices of the shared site hosting plans provided by 'DLive'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages offered by 'DLive' are powered by an in-house created, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a separate host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting firms are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to make their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by a real cloud hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the web space hosting price very low (because lots of clients use the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web page hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web page hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you spare funds that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each and every site hosting plan furnished by 'DLive' sports an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'DLive' provides shared web page hosting plans in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, almost the whole World is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting service at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'DLive' are really well equipped and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $6.08 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem difficult to manage. That's probably why 'DLive' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a regular shared hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not include server root access (we, at wbugadmission.com, think that this is a minor minus), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared plans. This suggests that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which host the VPS server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'DLive' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Mercury package.

Dedicated Servers

According to wbugadmission.com, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'DLive' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'DLive' supplies a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the web hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of site. In 'DLive's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from wbugadmission.com, deem that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'DLive' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every web server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'DLive' are all unmanaged. We, at wbugadmission.com, think of this as a small weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of website hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (wbugadmission.com's) forecast is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our (wbugadmission.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'DLive' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
