A review of Blue Moon Hosting

We, at hwsolutions.uk, have selected 'Blue Moon Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Hence we suppose that this concise assessment of 'Blue Moon Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'Blue Moon Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Blue Moon Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at hwsolutions.uk, have noticed is the low prices of the shared web site hosting services supplied by 'Blue Moon Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans furnished by 'Blue Moon Hosting' are driven by a custom built, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an independent host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have mammoth problems with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting suppliers cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to design their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the price amazingly low (because numerous users share one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a small web page hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your site grows. In this way, you economize cash that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting plan offered by 'Blue Moon Hosting' contains an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Blue Moon Hosting' distributes shared web page hosting packages in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'Blue Moon Hosting' are quite well appointed and are available at an affordable price (beginning from £12.50 for the Business plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Blue Moon Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a normal shared plan via a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not come with root-level access (we, at hwsolutions.uk, count this as a minor weakness), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same web hosting CP GUI as the shared hosting plans. This indicates that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to handle a VPS, yet demand more power and features than a VPS web server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Blue Moon Hosting' can be categorized as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In hwsolutions.uk's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Blue Moon Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its users' demands, 'Blue Moon Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of site. According to 'Blue Moon Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from hwsolutions.uk, think that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'Blue Moon Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server provides free invoicing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Blue Moon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at hwsolutions.uk, think that this is a slight negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to £26.22 GBP. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (hwsolutions.uk's) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP client pointless. Our (hwsolutions.uk's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Blue Moon Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from £65.36 for the Atom 2 package.
