A survey of MarbleHost.com

We, at fearzone.net, have selected 'MarbleHost.com' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we expect that this short evaluation of 'MarbleHost.com' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'MarbleHost.com' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'MarbleHost.com' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at fearzone.net, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared hosting solutions offered by 'MarbleHost.com'. 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 hosting accounts provided by 'MarbleHost.com' are powered by an in-house built, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an independent pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have mammoth problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting vendors cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered site hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price very low (since lots of customers utilize one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot accommodate your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page expands. In this way, you save cash that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Each and every webspace hosting account provided by 'MarbleHost.com' offers an online site building tool and more than forty popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'MarbleHost.com' offers shared web hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, practically the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting solution at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans furnished 'MarbleHost.com' are really well appointed and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $4.99 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a private virtual server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'MarbleHost.com' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a normal shared web site hosting plan through a web space hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not ship with complete root-level access (we, at fearzone.net, think that this is a slight drawback), but the advantage is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting CP tool as the shared web hosting plans. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical environment is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual hosting server, yet require more power and reserves than a Virtual Private Server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'MarbleHost.com' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $29.99 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to fearzone.net, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'MarbleHost.com' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'MarbleHost.com' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'MarbleHost.com's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from fearzone.net, consider that all dedicated server specifications provided by 'MarbleHost.com' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every hosting server provides free invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'MarbleHost.com' are all unmanaged. We, at fearzone.net, regard this as a small defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $35.00 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, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (fearzone.net's) prognosis is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our (fearzone.net's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'MarbleHost.com' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $89.99 for the Atom 1 package.
