A review of Incite Graphics

We, at comfortshields.com, have picked 'Incite Graphics' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we imagine that this short review of 'Incite Graphics' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Incite Graphics' presently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Incite Graphics' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at comfortshields.com, have spotted is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting accounts offered by 'Incite Graphics'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans provided by 'Incite Graphics' are powered by a custom invented, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an autonomous stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have colossal complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting distributors are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to design their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine cloud web hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web space hosting price amazingly low (since lots of customers are located on the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a basic web space hosting package that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your website grows. So, you spare money that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Each and every web site hosting account furnished by 'Incite Graphics' arrives with an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Incite Graphics' delivers shared web hosting services in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, approximately the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable hosting service at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Incite Graphics' are quite well equipped and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $5.47 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Incite Graphics' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a standard shared web space hosting account via a Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared hosting account such as a free website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared with a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not come with full root privileges (we, at comfortshields.com, think that this is a small defect), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared hosting packages. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a Virtual Private Server can provide them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the virtual web server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Incite Graphics' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to comfortshields.com, big web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Incite Graphics' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' demands, 'Incite Graphics' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the web servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of site. According to 'Incite Graphics', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from comfortshields.com, think that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Incite Graphics' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web server arrives with free billing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Incite Graphics' are all unmanaged. We, at comfortshields.com, count this as a little minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (comfortshields.com's) forecast is that the superb point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (comfortshields.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Incite Graphics' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $75.00 for the Atom 1 package.
