A review of DLive

We, at wbpgadmission.com, have chosen 'DLive' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we consider that this succinct assessment of 'DLive' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'DLive' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'DLive' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at wbpgadmission.com, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting packages delivered by 'DLive'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting accounts provided by 'DLive' are powered by an in-house built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an individual set of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel webspace hosting distributors are unable to include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to make their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud website hosting system. With a shared package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the web site hosting price very low (because multiple customers use one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web space hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic website hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. Thus, you save funds that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Every website hosting package delivered by 'DLive' comprises an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'DLive' delivers shared website hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the entire planet is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast web site hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'DLive' are very well furnished and come at a good price (starting from $5.83 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'DLive' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a conventional shared webspace hosting package through a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting account such as a free website building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not include complete root-level access (we, at wbpgadmission.com, think of this as a little problem), but the plus is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting plans. This goes to say that a known graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a virtual private hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'DLive' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Mercury plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to wbpgadmission.com, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'DLive' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its users' anticipations, 'DLive' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady work of any type of web site. According to 'DLive', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from wbpgadmission.com, believe that all dedicated server packages provided by 'DLive' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers provided by 'DLive' are all unmanaged. We, at wbpgadmission.com, regard this as a little disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of website hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (wbpgadmission.com's) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (wbpgadmission.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'DLive' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
