An assessment of Salmon Hosting

We, at ghealdan.3rdrangers.com, have selected 'Salmon Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this short review of 'Salmon Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Salmon Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Salmon Hosting' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at ghealdan.3rdrangers.com, have detected is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting accounts provided by 'Salmon Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'Salmon Hosting' are driven by an in-house devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a different group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel webspace hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (because numerous clients are located on one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still novel. Each web space hosting package delivered by 'Salmon Hosting' arrives with an online site building tool and over forty widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Salmon Hosting' delivers shared hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the whole Earth is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Salmon Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a low-cost price (beginning from $3.95 for the Steelhead package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Salmon Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a standard shared website hosting plan via a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When matched against a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not include server root access (we, at ghealdan.3rdrangers.com, consider this a little inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting accounts. This hints that a known GUI is accessible by all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a private virtual hosting server, yet require more power and supplies than a virtual private web hosting server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful ultramodern web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Salmon Hosting' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In ghealdan.3rdrangers.com's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'Salmon Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' expectations, 'Salmon Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers boast: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and steady work of any type of site. In 'Salmon Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from ghealdan.3rdrangers.com, think that all dedicated server specifications provided by 'Salmon Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server arrives with free billing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Salmon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at ghealdan.3rdrangers.com, regard this as a slight defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ghealdan.3rdrangers.com's) prediction is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (ghealdan.3rdrangers.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Salmon Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
