A survey of eTexHosting

We, at, have chosen 'eTexHosting' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Hence we believe that this brief evaluation of 'eTexHosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'eTexHosting' presently 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). That way, covering practically the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'eTexHosting' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts supplied by 'eTexHosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages furnished by 'eTexHosting' are driven by an in-house built, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting firms 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 concoct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered hosting system. With a shared hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since multiple users share the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really need, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. So, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still new. Every web page hosting package furnished by 'eTexHosting' boasts an online site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'eTexHosting' furnishes shared site hosting plans in several different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, nearly the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting solution at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'eTexHosting' are very well furnished and are available at a very affordable price (starting from $9.99 for the Lite Hosting Plan package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a VPS may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'eTexHosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared hosting package through a webspace hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting plan such as a fee-free web site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared to a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not include full server root access (we, at, think of this as a tiny negative point), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same hosting CP user interface as the shared web page hosting plans. This means that a familiar graphical interface is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and features than a private virtual web server can give them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'eTexHosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'eTexHosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'eTexHosting' provides an array of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the servers come with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'eTexHosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'eTexHosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server ships with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'eTexHosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'eTexHosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
