A review of BrentHost ''

We, at, have selected 'BrentHost ''' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we suppose that this succinct review of 'BrentHost ''' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'BrentHost ''' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'BrentHost ''' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared website hosting services supplied by 'BrentHost '''. 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 website hosting packages provided by 'BrentHost ''' are driven by an in-house designed, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an independent bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting providers are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud website hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the webspace hosting price really low (because multiple users are located on the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web page hosting account that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you spare money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Every hosting account provided by 'BrentHost ''' boasts an online website building tool and over forty popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'BrentHost ''' supplies shared web site hosting solutions in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, nearly the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'BrentHost ''' are quite well equipped and come at a very low price (beginning from $5.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'BrentHost ''' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared web site hosting package via a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not arrive with complete root access (we, at, think of this as a small disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed via the same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This signifies that a well-known graphical environment is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a virtual server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'BrentHost ''' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'BrentHost ''' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'BrentHost ''' provides a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'BrentHost '''s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs offered by 'BrentHost ''' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'BrentHost ''' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a little weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'BrentHost ''' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
