A survey of Phillips Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Phillips Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Hence we deem that this succinct assessment of 'Phillips Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Phillips Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Phillips Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting services supplied by 'Phillips 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 site hosting plans furnished by 'Phillips Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an independent stack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have considerable difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based hosting companies cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered site hosting system. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the price amazingly low (because numerous clients utilize the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your site grows. Thus, you save funds that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still novel. Every web site hosting package furnished by 'Phillips Hosting' comes with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Phillips Hosting' furnishes shared website hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, almost the whole planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Phillips Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a very attractive price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Phillips Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a normal shared web page hosting account through a webspace hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not come with complete server root access (we, at, consider this a small inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This indicates that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Phillips Hosting' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'Phillips Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, 'Phillips Hosting' provides a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'Phillips Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Phillips Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server ships with free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers provided by 'Phillips Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of web site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Phillips Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Montana package.
