administered by 'TurnelHost'

A survey of TurnelHost

We, at, have selected 'TurnelHost' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we consider that this short evaluation of 'TurnelHost' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'TurnelHost' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'TurnelHost' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared website hosting accounts furnished by 'TurnelHost'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting packages delivered by 'TurnelHost' are powered by an in-house invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a different host of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting corporations are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must concoct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud site hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the web space hosting price very low (because plenty of clients share the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered webspace hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you economize capital that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Each and every website hosting account furnished by 'TurnelHost' includes an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'TurnelHost' distributes shared hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, practically the entire World is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting packages offered 'TurnelHost' are quite well furnished and come at an affordable price (beginning from $3.34 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may seem hard to administer. That's probably why 'TurnelHost' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a typical shared webspace hosting package through a CP tool. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not ship with server root access (we, at, count this as a tiny minus), but the plus is that they are managed via the same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting accounts. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to manage a VPS server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a private virtual web server can supply them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'TurnelHost' can be dubbed as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi-dedicated L package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'TurnelHost' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' demands, 'TurnelHost' delivers an assortment of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of web site. In 'TurnelHost's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'TurnelHost' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-charge billing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'TurnelHost' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny defect, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $35.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'TurnelHost' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
