A review of Hostadia

We, at, have chosen 'Hostadia' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. This is why we think that this succinct review of 'Hostadia' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Hostadia' presently offers domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hostadia' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have perceived is the cheap prices of the shared web site hosting solutions delivered by 'Hostadia'. 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 site hosting plans furnished by 'Hostadia' are driven by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an independent stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting vendors are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to design their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud web hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of clients are hosted on one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny website hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your site grows. In this way, you spare cash that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Every web site hosting plan supplied by 'Hostadia' sports an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Hostadia' distributes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, practically the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting solution at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'Hostadia' are really well furnished and come at a very low price (beginning from $6.25 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may seem hard to administer. That's probably why 'Hostadia' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a typical shared web hosting plan through a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared account such as a free-of-cost site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared packages. When compared to a shared package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not include complete root access (we, at, regard this as a little weakness), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same CP interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This hints that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a private virtual web hosting server can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Hostadia' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Hostadia' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'Hostadia' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of site. According to 'Hostadia', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Hostadia' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server provides free-of-charge billing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers provided by 'Hostadia' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Hostadia' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
