A review of NTC Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. This is why we suppose that this brief review of 'NTC Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared web space hosting plans furnished by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel webspace hosting distributors are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of clients are located on the same server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually demand, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a small web site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your site expands. So, you spare funds that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting account provided by 'NTC Hosting' includes an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared website hosting services in a number of different countries across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable web space hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'NTC Hosting' are very well furnished and are available at a very modest price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a private virtual web server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a standard shared web page hosting account through a hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When matched against a shared hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not ship with full root privileges (we, at, count this as a small weak point), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same web hosting CP interface as the shared hosting packages. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a VPS hosting server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'NTC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' expectations, 'NTC Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a slight weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
