A review of Tierra Hosting

We, at tierrahosting.eu, have chosen 'Tierra Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. This is why we consider that this brief review of 'Tierra Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Tierra Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing virtually the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Tierra Hosting' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at tierrahosting.eu, have perceived is the affordable prices of the shared web page hosting accounts provided by 'Tierra Hosting'. 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 webspace hosting packages delivered by 'Tierra Hosting' are driven by a custom invented, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an independent bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web space hosting firms are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to design their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting system. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the web space hosting price really low (because numerous users are hosted on one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a small webspace hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you economize money that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still novel. Each and every web page hosting account supplied by 'Tierra Hosting' contains an online web site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Tierra Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the whole Globe is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web site hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting services delivered 'Tierra Hosting' are really well appointed and come at an excellent price (starting from $3.25 for the Simple plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a private virtual server may seem problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Tierra Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a regular shared web site hosting plan via a webspace hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When compared with a shared site hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not come with full root access (we, at tierrahosting.eu, think that this is a slight problem), but the plus is that they are managed via the same web page hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a private virtual server, yet need more power and features than a private virtual hosting server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Tierra Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In tierrahosting.eu's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'Tierra Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' expectations, 'Tierra Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of site. According to 'Tierra Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from tierrahosting.eu, think that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Tierra Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server provides free invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Tierra Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at tierrahosting.eu, deem this a little weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (tierrahosting.eu's) prognosis is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (tierrahosting.eu's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Tierra Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 2 plan.
