An evaluation of Baughman Hosting

We, at grass.ehits.info, have chosen 'Baughman Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we suppose that this brief review of 'Baughman Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Baughman Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Baughman Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at grass.ehits.info, have seen is the low prices of the shared site hosting packages provided by 'Baughman Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages furnished by 'Baughman Hosting' are powered by a custom developed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an independent bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have immense troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting companies cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price amazingly low (because lots of clients are hosted on one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you spare capital that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Each and every hosting package offered by 'Baughman Hosting' contains an online website building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'Baughman Hosting' distributes shared web space hosting packages in several different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Baughman Hosting' are really well equipped and come at a low-cost price (beginning from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual web server may seem hard to administer. That's probably why 'Baughman Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States data center facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a standard shared web site hosting plan through a CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting package such as a fee-free website building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not ship with full root access (we, at grass.ehits.info, count this as a small minus), but the plus is that they are administered through the same hosting CP interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable GUI is offered to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a VPS, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can bestow on them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Baughman Hosting' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In grass.ehits.info's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'Baughman Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' needs, 'Baughman Hosting' supplies an assortment of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Baughman Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from grass.ehits.info, think that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'Baughman Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each web server includes free billing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Baughman Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at grass.ehits.info, think that this is a small weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (grass.ehits.info's) prognosis is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our (grass.ehits.info's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Baughman Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
