A survey of Ward Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Ward Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. This is why we anticipate that this short assessment of 'Ward Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Ward Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Ward Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have noted is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts supplied by 'Ward Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts delivered by 'Ward Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an autonomous set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have great problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting companies cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud hosting platform. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the website hosting price amazingly low (because multiple users utilize the same server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web space hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web page hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your site expands. That way, you economize capital that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still novel. Each webspace hosting package offered by 'Ward Hosting' contains an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Ward Hosting' furnishes shared site hosting packages in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting solution at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Ward Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at an excellent price (starting from $3.00 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS web hosting server may appear difficult to manage. That's probably why 'Ward Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a regular shared web hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When compared with a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not offer full server root access (we, at, count this as a small downside), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared website hosting packages. This suggests that a known graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual server, yet need more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Ward Hosting' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Pro plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Ward Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' anticipations, 'Ward Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the web servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of site. In 'Ward Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Ward Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each hosting server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Ward Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Ward Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
