A survey of WebGalaxy-UK

We, at, have selected 'WebGalaxy-UK' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this succinct assessment of 'WebGalaxy-UK' is perchance going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'WebGalaxy-UK' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing approximately the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'WebGalaxy-UK' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have spotted is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting solutions offered by 'WebGalaxy-UK'. 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 hosting plans supplied by 'WebGalaxy-UK' are powered by a custom created, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a different set of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting distributors are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to build their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud website hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the webspace hosting price really low (because a lot of customers are located on the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for an advanced web site hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still novel. Each website hosting plan provided by 'WebGalaxy-UK' comprises an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'WebGalaxy-UK' provides shared site hosting solutions in several different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, virtually the entire World is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'WebGalaxy-UK' are really well furnished and come at a very affordable price (starting from €2.67 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS web server may appear difficult to manage. That's perhaps why 'WebGalaxy-UK' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a standard shared website hosting package via a hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not ship with server root access (we, at, count this as a little minus), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web hosting plans. This hints that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a private virtual web server can offer. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'WebGalaxy-UK' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'WebGalaxy-UK' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' expectations, 'WebGalaxy-UK' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady work of any type of site. According to 'WebGalaxy-UK', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'WebGalaxy-UK' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each hosting server ships with free invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'WebGalaxy-UK' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a little disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of €29.08 EUR. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'WebGalaxy-UK' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from €118.35 for the Xeon 1.8 plan.
