A review of Prowse Ideas

We, at rachelprowse.com, have picked 'Prowse Ideas' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we deem that this succinct evaluation of 'Prowse Ideas' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Prowse Ideas' presently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Prowse Ideas' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at rachelprowse.com, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'Prowse Ideas'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages offered by 'Prowse Ideas' are driven by an in-house created, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an autonomous group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have big difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting providers cannot include new 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 premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the hosting price really low (since lots of clients use the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web space hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed need, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. In this way, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Each site hosting account delivered by 'Prowse Ideas' comes with an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Prowse Ideas' provides shared web space hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, practically the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting service at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting services delivered 'Prowse Ideas' are really well stocked and come at a very good price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Prowse Ideas' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a normal shared web site hosting account via a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared plans. When matched against a shared package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not arrive with complete root access (we, at rachelprowse.com, count this as a little minus), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web space hosting CP tool as the shared hosting plans. This signifies that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful ultramodern web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Prowse Ideas' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In rachelprowse.com's opinion, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Prowse Ideas' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' demands, 'Prowse Ideas' offers an array of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'Prowse Ideas's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from rachelprowse.com, think that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Prowse Ideas' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Prowse Ideas' are all unmanaged. We, at rachelprowse.com, consider this a tiny weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web page hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (rachelprowse.com's) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (rachelprowse.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Prowse Ideas' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
