An evaluation of 9 Cube Hosting

We, at, have selected '9 Cube Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. This is why we suppose that this concise evaluation of '9 Cube Hosting' is perchance going to be very useful for other folks from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the simple truth is that '9 Cube Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from '9 Cube Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have spotted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting plans provided by '9 Cube Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts furnished by '9 Cube Hosting' are powered by an in-house designed, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an independent host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting corporations cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must build their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered website hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the web site hosting price amazingly low (because multiple clients utilize one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny webspace hosting account that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site expands. Thus, you spare cash that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Each web space hosting package provided by '9 Cube Hosting' contains an online website building tool and over forty widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. '9 Cube Hosting' distributes shared hosting plans in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the entire World is covered to present you and your visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished '9 Cube Hosting' are quite well furnished and come at an excellent price (beginning from $2.92 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why '9 Cube Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a standard shared web site hosting account via a web page hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not arrive with complete root access (we, at, consider this a small inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web site hosting CP user interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This hints that a recognizable GUI is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '9 Cube Hosting' can be categorized as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $19.99 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from '9 Cube Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' anticipations, '9 Cube Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers include: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. In '9 Cube Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages supplied by '9 Cube Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each web server ships with free billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by '9 Cube Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $35.99 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by '9 Cube Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $44.99 for the Atom 2c plan.
