An evaluation of Benson Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Benson Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Hence we presume that this short assessment of 'Benson Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Benson Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing approximately the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Benson Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'Benson 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 web space hosting packages offered by 'Benson Hosting' are driven by a custom devised, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a separate pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting distributors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by a real cloud site hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price very low (because a lot of users share one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web page hosting package that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you spare funds that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still new. Every web page hosting account furnished by 'Benson Hosting' ships with an online website builder and more than 40 popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Benson Hosting' distributes shared website hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole planet is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting service at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Benson Hosting' are very well furnished and come at an attractive price (starting from $2.75 for the Simple plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual web hosting server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Benson Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared webspace hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not come with root access (we, at, think that this is a slight defect), but the plus is that they are managed through the same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared packages. This indicates that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a virtual private web server, yet require more power and supplies than a private virtual web server can confer to them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual 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 'Benson Hosting' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Manager package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Benson Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Benson Hosting' supplies a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Benson Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Benson Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server includes free-of-charge billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Benson Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web page hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Benson Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
