A review of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we deem that this succinct review of 'NTC Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have spotted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web page hosting services provided by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting accounts provided by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting providers cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud web hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the web space hosting price really low (since multiple clients utilize one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud website hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your online presence expands. Hence, you save capital that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each and every web hosting package delivered by 'NTC Hosting' sports an online website builder and more than 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' supplies shared webspace hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole World is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'NTC Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a budget price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a VPS web server may appear difficult to manage. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to administering a regular shared webspace hosting account via a hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting account such as a fee-free website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting packages. When compared to a shared hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not ship with root-level access (we, at, think of this as a minor negative point), but the good point is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web hosting accounts. This goes to say that a known graphical interface is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to administer a VPS, yet demand more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'NTC Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server includes free billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Gold 1 package.
