A survey of Sibanda Hosting

We, at sobethumedia.com, have selected 'Sibanda Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we believe that this short review of 'Sibanda Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Sibanda Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Sibanda Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at sobethumedia.com, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting packages furnished by 'Sibanda Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts supplied by 'Sibanda Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate set of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have considerable problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting companies are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud website hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the site hosting price very low (because numerous customers share one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you economize capital that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Every web site hosting plan provided by 'Sibanda Hosting' contains an online web site builder and over 40 popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Sibanda Hosting' offers shared web hosting services in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the entire World is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Sibanda Hosting' are really well appointed and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $2.75 for the Phuti package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Sibanda Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a standard shared web site hosting account via a web space hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a fee-free site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When compared to a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not arrive with full root privileges (we, at sobethumedia.com, regard this as a minor negative point), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared accounts. This hints that a known graphical interface is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to handle a private virtual server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual server can bestow on them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Sibanda Hosting' can be categorized as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to sobethumedia.com, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Sibanda Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' demands, 'Sibanda Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. According to 'Sibanda Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from sobethumedia.com, deem that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Sibanda Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server offers free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Sibanda Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at sobethumedia.com, think that this is a minor disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sobethumedia.com's) forecast is that the superb point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our (sobethumedia.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Sibanda Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
