administered by 'CyanHosts'

A review of CyanHosts

We, at, have chosen 'CyanHosts' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this short assessment of 'CyanHosts' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'CyanHosts' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'CyanHosts' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the modest prices of the shared website hosting solutions provided by 'CyanHosts'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts furnished by 'CyanHosts' are driven by a custom invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an independent group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have great problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting firms are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (because many users share the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. That way, you economize funds that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting plan delivered by 'CyanHosts' boasts an online site building tool and over 40 popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'CyanHosts' delivers shared web space hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, practically the entire planet is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting service at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'CyanHosts' are quite well furnished and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $4.24 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may appear difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'CyanHosts' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to managing a typical shared site hosting account via a web space hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not offer root privileges (we, at, think of this as a little drawback), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This means that a familiar GUI is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual server can offer. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the private virtual 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 supplied by 'CyanHosts' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $29.99 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'CyanHosts' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' anticipations, 'CyanHosts' supplies a collection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'CyanHosts', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'CyanHosts' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server ships with free billing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'CyanHosts' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a slight disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers various extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'CyanHosts' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
