An assessment of Papua Web Hosting

We, at gopapua.com, have chosen 'Papua Web Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Hence we presume that this concise evaluation of 'Papua Web Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Papua Web Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Papua Web Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at gopapua.com, have observed is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting plans provided by 'Papua Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans delivered by 'Papua Web Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have enormous complications with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting providers are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the web site hosting price really low (because multiple users are located on one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web page hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. So, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each and every website hosting plan furnished by 'Papua Web Hosting' comprises an online website building tool and over 40 popular script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Papua Web Hosting' offers shared website hosting packages in several different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting services supplied 'Papua Web Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $3.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may appear complicated to administer. That's probably why 'Papua Web Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to managing a normal shared web site hosting account through a web site hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free web site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not come with full root access (we, at gopapua.com, think that this is a little downside), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web space hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web site hosting plans. This means that a user-friendly graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a VPS server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual private 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 supplied by 'Papua Web Hosting' can be labeled as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In gopapua.com's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'Papua Web Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'Papua Web Hosting' provides an array of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. According to 'Papua Web Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from gopapua.com, consider that all dedicated server plans offered by 'Papua Web Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Papua Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at gopapua.com, deem this a slight weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (gopapua.com's) prediction is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our (gopapua.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Papua Web Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $75.00 for the Atom 1 package.
