A survey of Fast Cloud Server

We, at, have selected 'Fast Cloud Server' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. This is why we expect that this brief evaluation of 'Fast Cloud Server' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'Fast Cloud Server' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Fast Cloud Server' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have seen is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting accounts furnished by 'Fast Cloud Server'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans supplied by 'Fast Cloud Server' are driven by a custom devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an individual bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have mammoth complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting corporations are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the site hosting price really low (since a lot of customers use one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered site hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web space hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web site expands. That way, you spare funds that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Every web page hosting account offered by 'Fast Cloud Server' includes an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Fast Cloud Server' distributes shared web site hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, approximately the entire World is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'Fast Cloud Server' are very well equipped and come at a low-cost price (beginning from $6.25 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Fast Cloud Server' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared webspace hosting package through a CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting package such as a fee-free site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When matched against a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not come with root access (we, at, regard this as a tiny defect), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This hints that a known graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual hosting server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which host the private virtual web hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Fast Cloud Server' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $40.00 for the Mini plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'Fast Cloud Server' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'Fast Cloud Server' provides an array of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. According to 'Fast Cloud Server', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Fast Cloud Server' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server offers free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Fast Cloud Server' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $36.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably make the use of any FTP client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Fast Cloud Server' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $45.00 for the Atom 2c package.
