An assessment of Emerald Gold Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Emerald Gold Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. This is why we suppose that this brief assessment of 'Emerald Gold Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Emerald Gold Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Emerald Gold Hosting' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting accounts provided by 'Emerald Gold Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts delivered by 'Emerald Gold Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a separate stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have great troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web space hosting vendors are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to develop their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared web site hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (since numerous users utilize the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you spare capital that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Every website hosting account furnished by 'Emerald Gold Hosting' includes an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Emerald Gold Hosting' distributes shared web site hosting packages in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the whole World is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Emerald Gold Hosting' are really well stocked and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $6.08 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Emerald Gold Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a typical shared webspace hosting package through a web site hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not arrive with server root access (we, at, deem this a slight problem), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same site hosting CP GUI as the shared plans. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a virtual server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the virtual web hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Emerald Gold Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Silver plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Emerald Gold Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' anticipations, 'Emerald Gold Hosting' offers an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady performance of any kind of site. In 'Emerald Gold Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Emerald Gold Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server offers free-of-cost billing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Emerald Gold Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Emerald Gold Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Garnet package.
