An assessment of EASYTECH AFRICA

We, at ets-lacour.com, have selected 'EASYTECH AFRICA' to be our current domain and hosting provider. This is why we think that this concise review of 'EASYTECH AFRICA' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'EASYTECH AFRICA' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'EASYTECH AFRICA' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first detail we, at ets-lacour.com, have observed is the modest prices of the shared web site hosting accounts delivered by 'EASYTECH AFRICA'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting accounts delivered by 'EASYTECH AFRICA' are driven by a custom designed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an autonomous stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have colossal complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based website hosting companies are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered web page hosting system. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the site hosting price very low (since lots of clients are located on one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web space hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful web site hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny hosting plan that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still new. Every web hosting account supplied by 'EASYTECH AFRICA' offers an online web site builder and over 40 popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'EASYTECH AFRICA' provides shared web hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire planet is covered to present you and your visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting plans offered 'EASYTECH AFRICA' are quite well furnished and come at a very low price (starting from €10.00 for the Pack Silver plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a private virtual web server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'EASYTECH AFRICA' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to managing a conventional shared account via a web hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not ship with complete root-level access (we, at ets-lacour.com, deem this a little weakness), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same web page hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This means that a known graphical interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a private virtual web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'EASYTECH AFRICA' can be defined as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from €20.65 for the Semi-dedicated L package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In ets-lacour.com's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'EASYTECH AFRICA' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' expectations, 'EASYTECH AFRICA' delivers a number of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. According to 'EASYTECH AFRICA', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from ets-lacour.com, think that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'EASYTECH AFRICA' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server includes free invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'EASYTECH AFRICA' are all unmanaged. We, at ets-lacour.com, consider this a minor downside, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of €36.00 EUR. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers various supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ets-lacour.com's) prediction is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our (ets-lacour.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'EASYTECH AFRICA' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from €43.41 for the Atom 2c plan.
