A survey of iApps Guatemala

We, at torreolivos.com, have selected 'iApps Guatemala' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we imagine that this brief review of 'iApps Guatemala' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'iApps Guatemala' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'iApps Guatemala' in brief:

Shared Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at torreolivos.com, have perceived is the affordable prices of the shared hosting accounts delivered by 'iApps Guatemala'. 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 hosting accounts furnished by 'iApps Guatemala' are powered by a custom designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an autonomous host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have great problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based website hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must devise their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price really low (because a lot of customers are located on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web hosting package that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you save money that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each and every webspace hosting plan furnished by 'iApps Guatemala' ships with an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'iApps Guatemala' furnishes shared site hosting services in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the whole planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable hosting solution at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'iApps Guatemala' are very well equipped and are available at an excellent price (beginning from $2.75 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a private virtual web server may seem problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'iApps Guatemala' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to managing a typical shared package via a web hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting package such as a free site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not arrive with root privileges (we, at torreolivos.com, count this as a minor weak point), but the advantage is that they are managed through the very same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This goes to say that a well-known GUI is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a VPS, yet demand more power and reserves than a private virtual web server can provide them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful first-class servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'iApps Guatemala' can be labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In torreolivos.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'iApps Guatemala' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' demands, 'iApps Guatemala' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any sort of website. In 'iApps Guatemala's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from torreolivos.com, think that all dedicated server plans offered by 'iApps Guatemala' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server ships with free-of-cost billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers supplied by 'iApps Guatemala' are all unmanaged. We, at torreolivos.com, think of this as a little drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (torreolivos.com's) forecast is that the excellent point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the use of any FTP client futile. Our (torreolivos.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'iApps Guatemala' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Salamander package.
