An assessment of AIDA Host

We, at, have selected 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we deem that this succinct assessment of 'AIDA Host' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have noted is the budget prices of the shared website hosting services offered by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting plans furnished by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have considerable problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting suppliers are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must build their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud website hosting platform. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers share one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web page hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you economize funds that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Every webspace hosting plan provided by 'AIDA Host' comes with an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'AIDA Host' distributes shared website hosting services in several different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole planet is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages furnished 'AIDA Host' are really well equipped and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $3.86 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS web hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a conventional shared web hosting plan through a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared site hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When compared to a shared hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not come with root-level access (we, at, count this as a small weakness), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting packages. This means that a recognizable graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a VPS can confer to them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'AIDA Host' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'AIDA Host' provides a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server comes with free billing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers delivered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a minor negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'AIDA Host' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Earth plan.
