An assessment of Efectiweb

We, at secols.com, have selected 'Efectiweb' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Hence we think that this brief assessment of 'Efectiweb' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Efectiweb' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Efectiweb' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at secols.com, have noticed is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting services furnished by 'Efectiweb'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans supplied by 'Efectiweb' are driven by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an autonomous stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have colossal difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting companies are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price really low (since lots of users share one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a small website hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website grows. That way, you save funds that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Every web page hosting package furnished by 'Efectiweb' offers an online site builder and over forty popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Efectiweb' delivers shared web page hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the entire planet is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting service at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Efectiweb' are quite well stocked and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $5.49 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Efectiweb' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to handling a typical shared account via a website hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When matched against a shared hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not offer full server root access (we, at secols.com, think of this as a slight negative point), but the good point is that they are administered through the same web page hosting CP interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This goes to say that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all users who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual server, yet demand more power and resources than a virtual web server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Efectiweb' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to secols.com, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Efectiweb' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'Efectiweb' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of website. In 'Efectiweb's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from secols.com, consider that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Efectiweb' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server ships with free invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Efectiweb' are all unmanaged. We, at secols.com, count this as a little weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (secols.com's) prognosis is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (secols.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Efectiweb' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
