An assessment of SKC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'SKC Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Hence we consider that this succinct assessment of 'SKC Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'SKC Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'SKC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the reasonable prices of the shared site hosting services furnished by 'SKC Hosting'. 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 page hosting accounts furnished by 'SKC Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have considerable troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting firms are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to construct their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered web hosting platform. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the price amazingly low (since multiple clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud website hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web hosting account that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each and every web site hosting package delivered by 'SKC Hosting' boasts an online site building tool and more than forty popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'SKC Hosting' furnishes shared hosting packages in a number of different regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire planet is covered to present you and your visitors with a steady and fast site hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'SKC Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a good price (starting from $3.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why 'SKC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a conventional shared web site hosting package via a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When matched against a shared hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not include full root privileges (we, at, deem this a small drawback), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This goes to say that a familiar graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a private virtual web server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'SKC Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'SKC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' demands, 'SKC Hosting' delivers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. According to 'SKC Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'SKC Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every hosting server arrives with free billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'SKC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a minor weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'SKC Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
