An assessment of enet

We, at alchemyelopements.com, have chosen 'enet' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we consider that this succinct assessment of 'enet' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'enet' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple 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, encompassing almost the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'enet' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at alchemyelopements.com, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared web hosting plans furnished by 'enet'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans furnished by 'enet' are driven by a custom invented, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have mammoth difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based hosting vendors are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (because numerous clients use the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting account that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Every web page hosting plan supplied by 'enet' ships with an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'enet' delivers shared web space hosting solutions in several different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole World is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'enet' are really well stocked and come at a very reasonable price (starting from $3.25 for the BC plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem tough to administer. That's probably why 'enet' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a regular shared web space hosting account through a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared website hosting account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When compared with a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not include root access (we, at alchemyelopements.com, count this as a minor downside), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same webspace hosting Control Panel tool as the shared site hosting packages. This suggests that a well-known GUI is available to all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'enet' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In alchemyelopements.com's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'enet' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'enet' provides a selection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of website. In 'enet's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from alchemyelopements.com, believe that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'enet' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server includes free-of-charge billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'enet' are all unmanaged. We, at alchemyelopements.com, think of this as a minor minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (alchemyelopements.com's) prediction is that the exceptional point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our (alchemyelopements.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'enet' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
