A survey of DP Host

We, at, have chosen 'DP Host' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we believe that this brief assessment of 'DP Host' is perchance going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'DP Host' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'DP Host' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have noted is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting plans delivered by 'DP Host'. 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 accounts offered by 'DP Host' are powered by an in-house designed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting distributors are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to design their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price really low (because plenty of users share the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a basic web space hosting account that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you economize capital that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Every web site hosting package provided by 'DP Host' ships with an online website builder and over 40 widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'DP Host' distributes shared web page hosting accounts in several different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'DP Host' are really well furnished and come at a very affordable price (starting from $6.00 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem difficult to handle. That's probably why 'DP Host' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a conventional shared plan through a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting package such as a fee-free site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not arrive with full root privileges (we, at, think of this as a little negative point), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and features than a private virtual hosting server can deliver. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'DP Host' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $39.00 for the Mini plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'DP Host' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' requirements, 'DP Host' supplies a selection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable work of any type of website. According to 'DP Host', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'DP Host' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'DP Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a tiny inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the outstanding point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'DP Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $45.00 for the Arctic plan.
