A survey of Metz Hosting

We, at synteria.productions, have picked 'Metz Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we consider that this short review of 'Metz Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Metz Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Metz Hosting' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at synteria.productions, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting plans furnished by 'Metz Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans delivered by 'Metz Hosting' are powered by an in-house invented, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous group of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have great troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price very low (since many users utilize the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web space hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you economize capital that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each website hosting package supplied by 'Metz Hosting' comprises an online website builder and over 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Metz Hosting' provides shared web page hosting plans in a number of different countries around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the whole World is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast website hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'Metz Hosting' are very well stocked and come at an attractive price (beginning from $3.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Metz Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a standard shared hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not come with root privileges (we, at synteria.productions, count this as a small disadvantage), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same site hosting CP GUI as the shared web hosting packages. This implies that a known graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a virtual hosting server, yet need more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the virtual web server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Metz Hosting' can be branded as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In synteria.productions's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Metz Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Metz Hosting' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of web site. According to 'Metz Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from synteria.productions, think that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Metz Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each web server ships with free billing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Metz Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at synteria.productions, count this as a minor weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (synteria.productions's) prediction is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our (synteria.productions's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Metz Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
