An assessment of Ignite Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Ignite Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'Ignite Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Ignite Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Ignite Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have observed is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting packages furnished by 'Ignite Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by 'Ignite Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have great problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must construct their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud website hosting platform. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web site hosting price very low (since numerous customers are hosted on one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web site hosting package that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you economize cash that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each web site hosting plan offered by 'Ignite Hosting' offers an online website building tool and over forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Ignite Hosting' delivers shared web site hosting packages in several different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Ignite Hosting' are really well equipped and come at a very good price (starting from $3.75 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Ignite Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to managing a normal shared site hosting plan via a CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared to a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not offer server root access (we, at, count this as a small problem), but the plus is that they are managed via the same web hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting packages. This implies that a known graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Ignite Hosting' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $22.50 for the Semi Pro package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Ignite Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' needs, 'Ignite Hosting' supplies a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Ignite Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Ignite Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server includes free-of-cost billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Ignite Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Ignite Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
