A survey of CloudTrix.NET
We, at inrated.com, have chosen 'CloudTrix.NET' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Hence we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'CloudTrix.NET' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'CloudTrix.NET' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'CloudTrix.NET' in a few words:
Shared Web Space Hosting Plans
The initial detail we, at inrated.com, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared site hosting packages delivered by 'CloudTrix.NET'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans furnished by 'CloudTrix.NET' are driven by a custom invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a separate group of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have mammoth predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting providers are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered website hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the hosting price very low (since plenty of users use the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a basic site hosting account that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you save cash that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each website hosting account provided by 'CloudTrix.NET' comes with an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'CloudTrix.NET' supplies shared web space hosting services in several different regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the entire World is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans furnished 'CloudTrix.NET' are quite well appointed and come at a very good price (beginning from $3.99 for the Starter package).
Semi-dedicated Web Servers
To users with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'CloudTrix.NET' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main US data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared web page hosting package through a web page hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared to a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server packages do not arrive with root privileges (we, at inrated.com, regard this as a slight drawback), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same Control Panel GUI as the shared accounts. This goes to say that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a private virtual web hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a virtual private hosting server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'CloudTrix.NET' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $27.99 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
In inrated.com's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'CloudTrix.NET' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' demands, 'CloudTrix.NET' offers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of web site. According to 'CloudTrix.NET', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from inrated.com, deem that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'CloudTrix.NET' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'CloudTrix.NET' are all unmanaged. We, at inrated.com, consider this a small negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $31.99 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (inrated.com's) prognosis is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP client useless. Our (inrated.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'CloudTrix.NET' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $87.99 for the Atom 1 plan.
