An assessment of Akaditi

We, at agileinghana.org, have chosen 'Akaditi' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Hence we believe that this concise evaluation of 'Akaditi' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Akaditi' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Akaditi' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at agileinghana.org, have spotted is the low prices of the shared webspace hosting plans supplied by 'Akaditi'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting plans furnished by 'Akaditi' are driven by an in-house designed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an individual host of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel webspace hosting firms are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud hosting platform. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the site hosting price very low (because multiple customers utilize one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually need, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web hosting account that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting plan supplied by 'Akaditi' sports an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Akaditi' provides shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, nearly the whole World is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting solution at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Akaditi' are very well equipped and come at a cut-rate price (starting from £2.30 for the Tiny plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Akaditi' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a conventional shared web page hosting account through a site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting account such as a free web site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When matched against a shared site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not come with root privileges (we, at agileinghana.org, deem this a little problem), but the plus is that they are managed through the same Control Panel tool as the shared webspace hosting packages. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not have enough confidence to manage a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can give them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Akaditi' can be labeled as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Pro package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In agileinghana.org's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Akaditi' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' needs, 'Akaditi' supplies a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Akaditi', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from agileinghana.org, consider that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'Akaditi' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Akaditi' are all unmanaged. We, at agileinghana.org, count this as a little drawback, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £25.08 GBP. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers various supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (agileinghana.org's) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our (agileinghana.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Akaditi' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from £34.51 for the Florida package.
