An evaluation of Midas 1 Hosting

We, at midasmore.com, have selected 'Midas 1 Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we imagine that this succinct assessment of 'Midas 1 Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Midas 1 Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Midas 1 Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at midasmore.com, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared web hosting solutions furnished by 'Midas 1 Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans furnished by 'Midas 1 Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an autonomous group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have mammoth complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting suppliers are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud hosting system. With a shared plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the website hosting price really low (because many customers utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. That way, you spare cash that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still new. Each hosting plan provided by 'Midas 1 Hosting' includes an online website building tool and over 40 popular script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Midas 1 Hosting' furnishes shared webspace hosting plans in several different regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting plans offered 'Midas 1 Hosting' are quite well furnished and are available at a very attractive price (beginning from $2.75 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Midas 1 Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared website hosting plan through a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not come with full root privileges (we, at midasmore.com, regard this as a tiny minus), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same web site hosting CP interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a VPS web server can bestow on them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Midas 1 Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Mini package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In midasmore.com's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Midas 1 Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'Midas 1 Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. According to 'Midas 1 Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from midasmore.com, consider that all dedicated server plans offered by 'Midas 1 Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server ships with free invoicing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Midas 1 Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at midasmore.com, think of this as a small problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (midasmore.com's) prognosis is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (midasmore.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Midas 1 Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Apollo plan.
