An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting provider. This is why we presume that this succinct evaluation of 'NTC Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting services supplied by 'NTC Hosting'. 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 web page hosting accounts supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting firms are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to make their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the web space hosting price really low (since multiple clients are located on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. That way, you save capital that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Every webspace hosting plan provided by 'NTC Hosting' contains an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' delivers shared hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the entire planet is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'NTC Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a very cheap price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS hosting server may appear difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a standard shared website hosting package via a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated packages do not include server root access (we, at, think of this as a minor disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are administered via the very same website hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting plans. This goes to say that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all users who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a VPS web server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which host the virtual web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'NTC Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. According to 'NTC Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
