A survey of Softcare Servers

We, at salu.lk, have picked 'Softcare Servers' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this succinct evaluation of 'Softcare Servers' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Softcare Servers' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing virtually the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Softcare Servers' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at salu.lk, have observed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web site hosting solutions provided by 'Softcare Servers'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans delivered by 'Softcare Servers' are driven by an in-house designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have great difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by a real cloud webspace hosting system. With a shared website hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the web space hosting price really low (since lots of users are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud website hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end site hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you economize capital that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Every site hosting account provided by 'Softcare Servers' ships with an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Softcare Servers' offers shared web hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, nearly the entire planet is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'Softcare Servers' are really well appointed and come at a very low price (starting from $3.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a VPS web server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Softcare Servers' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared webspace hosting plan via a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not arrive with full server root access (we, at salu.lk, think that this is a little disadvantage), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web space hosting Control Panel tool as the shared website hosting accounts. This means that a recognizable GUI is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS web hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Softcare Servers' can be classified as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In salu.lk's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'Softcare Servers' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' needs, 'Softcare Servers' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'Softcare Servers's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from salu.lk, deem that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Softcare Servers' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'Softcare Servers' are all unmanaged. We, at salu.lk, deem this a minor drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (salu.lk's) prediction is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP software program useless. Our (salu.lk's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Softcare Servers' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
