A review of HGDS Web Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'HGDS Web Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we believe that this succinct evaluation of 'HGDS Web Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'HGDS Web Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'HGDS Web Hosting' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared website hosting accounts furnished by 'HGDS Web Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting packages supplied by 'HGDS Web Hosting' are driven by a custom built, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a separate host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting corporations are not able to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic cloud site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (because numerous clients use one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud site hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your site grows. That way, you spare money that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each site hosting plan supplied by 'HGDS Web Hosting' offers an online site building tool and over forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'HGDS Web Hosting' provides shared web site hosting accounts in several different regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, practically the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting packages supplied 'HGDS Web Hosting' are very well furnished and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from $4.08 for the Essentials plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS server may appear tough to manage. That's probably why 'HGDS Web Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a conventional shared plan via a site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not offer full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a minor disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same CP interface as the shared site hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all users who are not confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual private web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'HGDS Web Hosting' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'HGDS Web Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' anticipations, 'HGDS Web Hosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'HGDS Web Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'HGDS Web Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server comes with free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'HGDS Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers various supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'HGDS Web Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
