A survey of Rai Hosting

We, at cbu.academy, have chosen 'Rai Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Hence we deem that this short review of 'Rai Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Rai Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Rai Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The first detail we, at cbu.academy, have noticed is the low prices of the shared web page hosting solutions offered by 'Rai Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans supplied by 'Rai Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an autonomous pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have immense troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting distributors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered web site hosting system. With a shared web hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of customers are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web site hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a basic web hosting plan that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your site grows. So, you spare funds that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still brand new. Every webspace hosting account furnished by 'Rai Hosting' comes with an online website builder and more than forty popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Rai Hosting' offers shared site hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'Rai Hosting' are very well stocked and come at an affordable price (starting from $3.00 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear tough to administer. That's probably why 'Rai Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a standard shared web space hosting package through a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared plan such as a free website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server plan is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When matched against a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not include complete root access (we, at cbu.academy, think that this is a little defect), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same CP interface as the shared web space hosting accounts. This indicates that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and features than a virtual private web hosting server can deliver. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Rai Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to cbu.academy, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Rai Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' requirements, 'Rai Hosting' delivers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. According to 'Rai Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from cbu.academy, deem that all dedicated server plans offered by 'Rai Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Rai Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at cbu.academy, regard this as a small defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cbu.academy's) forecast is that the superb drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (cbu.academy's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Rai Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
