A survey of Cowboy Web Hosting

We, at cbas-home.com, have picked 'Cowboy Web Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we presume that this short evaluation of 'Cowboy Web Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Cowboy Web Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Cowboy Web Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at cbas-home.com, have perceived is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting accounts offered by 'Cowboy Web 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 hosting packages supplied by 'Cowboy Web Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a different stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have considerable complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting suppliers cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price very low (since multiple clients are located on the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting package that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you spare funds that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Each and every hosting plan delivered by 'Cowboy Web Hosting' offers an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Cowboy Web Hosting' provides shared web hosting services in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire World is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Cowboy Web Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at an affordable price (starting from $4.17 for the Backaroo plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a VPS may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'Cowboy Web Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a normal shared website hosting plan via a hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated plan is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not offer server root access (we, at cbas-home.com, regard this as a little disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared packages. This suggests that a known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can provide them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Cowboy Web Hosting' can be dubbed as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Ranchhand plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In cbas-home.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Cowboy Web Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' requirements, 'Cowboy Web Hosting' delivers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'Cowboy Web Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from cbas-home.com, deem that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'Cowboy Web Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every hosting server provides free-of-cost billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Cowboy Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at cbas-home.com, think that this is a tiny negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $34.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of website hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cbas-home.com's) prediction is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (cbas-home.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Cowboy Web Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Pole Bending package.
