An evaluation of AIDA Host

We, at, have selected 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. This is why we expect that this succinct evaluation of 'AIDA Host' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'AIDA Host' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared webspace hosting packages furnished by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages provided by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house created, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a different group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have enormous problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting companies are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must construct their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared package, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the web site hosting price amazingly low (since numerous users utilize one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a powerful website hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a basic hosting plan that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. In this way, you economize funds that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Every web space hosting plan supplied by 'AIDA Host' comprises an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'AIDA Host' delivers shared web page hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, approximately the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting services furnished 'AIDA Host' are really well appointed and are available at a good price (beginning from $3.86 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a regular shared webspace hosting account via a web space hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared website hosting package such as a free site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not include full server root privileges (we, at, regard this as a small inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same site hosting CP tool as the shared web page hosting packages. This signifies that a recognizable graphical environment is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to administer a VPS, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'AIDA Host' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' anticipations, 'AIDA Host' delivers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any type of site. According to 'AIDA Host', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server arrives with free billing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several webspace hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly render the use of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Earth package.
