An assessment of NTC Hosting

We, at, have picked 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we believe that this brief assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'NTC Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have seen is the modest prices of the shared site hosting solutions delivered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom designed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a separate stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting firms cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the web site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous clients use the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end site hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence expands. So, you economize funds that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Every webspace hosting package furnished by 'NTC Hosting' includes an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, nearly the whole Earth is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting solution at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'NTC Hosting' are really well appointed and are available at an excellent price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to handling a typical shared web page hosting package via a web hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting plans. When compared to a shared site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not include complete root-level access (we, at, consider this a small weak point), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting CP interface as the shared plans. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical interface is offered to all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a VPS web server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' can be branded as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'NTC Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each hosting server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
