An evaluation of Webgear Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Webgear Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. Hence we anticipate that this succinct review of 'Webgear Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Webgear Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Webgear Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the inexpensive prices of the shared web page hosting solutions offered by 'Webgear Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts supplied by 'Webgear Hosting' are powered by an in-house designed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a different stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting firms are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting packages, which are driven by a real clustered site hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the web hosting price really low (because many users share the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered website hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your site expands. Hence, you save capital that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still brand new. Each hosting package furnished by 'Webgear Hosting' offers an online site builder and over forty popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Webgear Hosting' offers shared hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, approximately the whole planet is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'Webgear Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from €6.06 for the Small package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may appear tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'Webgear Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to managing a regular shared web page hosting account through a CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a free website building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not include full server root access (we, at, deem this a little downside), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting plans. This means that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all users who do not have enough confidence to handle a VPS server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a virtual private web hosting server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Webgear Hosting' can be branded as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'Webgear Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' expectations, 'Webgear Hosting' provides a bouquet of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the web servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of site. According to 'Webgear Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'Webgear Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server provides free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Webgear Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €37.40 EUR. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Webgear Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from €63.37 for the Atom 1 plan.
