An assessment of CloudPanel

We, at, have selected 'CloudPanel' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we suppose that this concise review of 'CloudPanel' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'CloudPanel' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'CloudPanel' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have noted is the affordable prices of the shared hosting plans supplied by 'CloudPanel'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts delivered by 'CloudPanel' are powered by an in-house invented, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an independent host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have great problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting suppliers are unable to add additional 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 plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the site hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of customers use one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your web page grows. So, you spare funds that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Every website hosting plan delivered by 'CloudPanel' contains an online web site building tool and over forty popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'CloudPanel' provides shared website hosting packages in a number of different countries around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web space hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'CloudPanel' are quite well appointed and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $5.50 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may seem tough to manage. That's probably why 'CloudPanel' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to managing a standard shared web page hosting account through a web page hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting account such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not ship with root access (we, at, count this as a small negative point), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This hints that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all users who are not self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, yet require more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'CloudPanel' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Mercury package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'CloudPanel' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, 'CloudPanel' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of site. In 'CloudPanel's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'CloudPanel' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free-of-charge billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'CloudPanel' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'CloudPanel' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Arctic plan.
