A survey of Silex Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Silex Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this concise assessment of 'Silex Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Silex Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Silex Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the modest prices of the shared web site hosting solutions provided by 'Silex Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans delivered by 'Silex Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting firms are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by an actual cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (since many users are located on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you actually require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny webspace hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you economize cash that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still new. Every web page hosting package offered by 'Silex Hosting' includes an online site builder and over 40 popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Silex Hosting' delivers shared web page hosting packages in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'Silex Hosting' are really well equipped and come at a very cheap price (beginning from €2.93 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS may appear difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'Silex Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to handling a regular shared account via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not arrive with full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a tiny drawback), but the plus is that they are administered via the same site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web space hosting plans. This goes to say that a well-known GUI is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Silex Hosting' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Tall package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Silex Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Silex Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of website. In 'Silex Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Silex Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every hosting server offers free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers offered by 'Silex Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a little defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of €34.06 EUR. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Silex Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from €63.37 for the Atom 1 package.
