A survey of AIDA Host

We, at, have picked 'AIDA Host' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. This is why we deem that this brief assessment of 'AIDA Host' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'AIDA Host' presently offers domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have seen is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans provided by 'AIDA Host' are powered by a custom invented, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting suppliers are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to design their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the website hosting price very low (since plenty of users are located on the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a small web page hosting package that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting package furnished by 'AIDA Host' arrives with an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'AIDA Host' provides shared webspace hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'AIDA Host' are quite well stocked and are available at a very affordable price (starting from $3.86 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a VPS web server may appear troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a typical shared site hosting package through a web hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting plan such as a fee-free web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not offer complete root access (we, at, deem this a slight problem), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared webspace hosting packages. This hints that a known graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'AIDA Host' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' needs, 'AIDA Host' offers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of site. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every server includes free-of-charge billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth package.
