An assessment of NTC Hosting

We, at, have picked 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we think that this succinct assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'NTC Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared web space hosting plans supplied by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages provided by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a different bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have big problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting providers cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud website hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the price really low (since a lot of customers share one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a powerful website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small webspace hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. So, you save capital that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Every web space hosting account supplied by 'NTC Hosting' offers an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'NTC Hosting' furnishes shared site hosting packages in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole World is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'NTC Hosting' are really well furnished and come at a very low price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual web server may seem hard to administer. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a regular shared web space hosting plan via a web space hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When compared to a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not arrive with root access (we, at, consider this a little weak point), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same web page hosting CP tool as the shared web space hosting plans. This means that a known GUI is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' demands, 'NTC Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server ships with free-of-charge invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a slight disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
