An assessment of GaskinTech
We, at sandyknits.com, have picked 'GaskinTech' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we expect that this short assessment of 'GaskinTech' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'GaskinTech' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'GaskinTech' in short:
Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions
The initial thing we, at sandyknits.com, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared web site hosting plans supplied by 'GaskinTech'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages offered by 'GaskinTech' are powered by a custom designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an autonomous pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have huge troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting companies are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered website hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the price very low (since multiple clients use the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web space hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you save cash that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting package provided by 'GaskinTech' includes an online site builder and more than forty widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'GaskinTech' furnishes shared web hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'GaskinTech' are really well equipped and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $3.00 for the Starter package).
To clients with little to no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'GaskinTech' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main US data center facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to administering a standard shared account via a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not include complete server root access (we, at sandyknits.com, deem this a slight problem), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same webspace hosting CP user interface as the shared accounts. This goes to say that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual private hosting server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a private virtual hosting server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'GaskinTech' can be classified as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.
Dedicated Web Servers
In sandyknits.com's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'GaskinTech' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' expectations, 'GaskinTech' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of site. In 'GaskinTech's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from sandyknits.com, deem that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'GaskinTech' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server arrives with free-of-cost billing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'GaskinTech' are all unmanaged. We, at sandyknits.com, deem this a minor downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sandyknits.com's) prognosis is that the exceptional point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (sandyknits.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'GaskinTech' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
