An assessment of Symplicity

We, at centurysquare.info, have chosen 'Symplicity' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we presume that this brief assessment of 'Symplicity' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'Symplicity' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Symplicity' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at centurysquare.info, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared website hosting solutions provided by 'Symplicity'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting accounts supplied by 'Symplicity' are driven by a custom devised, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an individual pack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting distributors are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to construct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the price very low (since multiple clients are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web space hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page grows. So, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting package provided by 'Symplicity' boasts an online website building tool and more than forty popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Symplicity' delivers shared web site hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'Symplicity' are really well stocked and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from £4.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'Symplicity' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a conventional shared hosting package through a website hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free website building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web space hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not include root access (we, at centurysquare.info, consider this a slight drawback), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web site hosting CP tool as the shared web page hosting packages. This indicates that a familiar graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a Virtual Private Server, yet demand more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Symplicity' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to centurysquare.info, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Symplicity' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'Symplicity' delivers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the servers have: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of web site. In 'Symplicity's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from centurysquare.info, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Symplicity' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server comes with free-of-cost billing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Symplicity' are all unmanaged. We, at centurysquare.info, think of this as a minor drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to £25.39 GBP. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (centurysquare.info's) prognosis is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (centurysquare.info's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Symplicity' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from £62.65 for the Atom 1 plan.
