A survey of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this concise assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'NTC Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing nearly the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have detected is the budget prices of the shared web hosting packages supplied by 'NTC 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 web page hosting packages supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an autonomous bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting firms cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to construct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered website hosting system. With a shared hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers are located on the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site expands. In this way, you spare money that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web page hosting account provided by 'NTC Hosting' offers an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' delivers shared web hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast web site hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages delivered 'NTC Hosting' are quite well furnished and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private web server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared web page hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting plan such as a fee-free site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting packages. When compared with a shared site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not ship with root-level access (we, at, regard this as a small defect), but the good point is that they are administered through the same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web page hosting accounts. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical environment is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS web server, yet demand more power and reserves than a virtual web server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' can be classified as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'NTC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'NTC Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of web site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every web server arrives with free-of-charge billing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers various extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the use of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
