A review of Rai Hosting

We, at aaly.net, have picked 'Rai Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Therefore we think that this short review of 'Rai Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Rai Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering practically the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Rai Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The first detail we, at aaly.net, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web hosting solutions provided by 'Rai Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'Rai Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have colossal predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting distributors are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the site hosting price very low (since multiple clients are hosted on one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really require, escaping a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small hosting package that cannot accommodate your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. So, you economize capital that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still new. Each web hosting account supplied by 'Rai Hosting' contains an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Rai Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting services in several different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire World is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Rai Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $3.00 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Rai Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a regular shared website hosting package through a site hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server plans do not arrive with complete root-level access (we, at aaly.net, deem this a little problem), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same website hosting CP tool as the shared web space hosting packages. This indicates that a known GUI is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, yet need more power and resources than a private virtual web server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the VPS web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Rai Hosting' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In aaly.net's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Rai Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' needs, 'Rai Hosting' delivers an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of site. In 'Rai Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from aaly.net, deem that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Rai Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers furnished by 'Rai Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at aaly.net, regard this as a slight weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (aaly.net's) forecast is that the amazing point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our (aaly.net's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Rai Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
