A survey of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we deem that this succinct assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have discerned is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting packages supplied by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom invented, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have considerable problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting distributors are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered web site hosting system. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers use the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered webspace hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you save funds that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still brand new. Each web site hosting plan provided by 'NTC Hosting' ships with an online web site builder and over forty popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared webspace hosting packages in several different regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, nearly the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'NTC Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to managing a standard shared webspace hosting account through a site hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When matched against a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not come with root-level access (we, at, deem this a slight weak point), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'NTC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' demands, 'NTC Hosting' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every server ships with free billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a slight problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
