An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we anticipate that this brief assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing practically the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have perceived is the modest prices of the shared hosting solutions furnished by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an autonomous group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have mammoth troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since numerous users utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web site hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you save funds that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each web hosting plan offered by 'NTC Hosting' ships with an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' provides shared web space hosting accounts in several different countries across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, nearly the entire planet is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'NTC Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a low-cost price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to managing a normal shared hosting account via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting package 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 hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not offer root access (we, at, deem this a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared site hosting packages. This goes to say that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to administer a VPS server, yet demand more power and supplies than a private virtual server can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' demands, 'NTC Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of web site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every web server includes free-of-charge billing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of website hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
