An evaluation of GS Studios

We, at sigmasupplies.co.uk, have chosen 'GS Studios' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'GS Studios' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'GS Studios' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'GS Studios' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at sigmasupplies.co.uk, have detected is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting accounts furnished by 'GS Studios'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans provided by 'GS Studios' are driven by an in-house developed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an autonomous set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have big problems with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting suppliers cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must construct their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud web space hosting system. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price very low (because numerous users share the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web site hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your site grows. Thus, you spare funds that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still brand new. Each and every site hosting plan supplied by 'GS Studios' arrives with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'GS Studios' supplies shared hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans delivered 'GS Studios' are very well appointed and come at a very good price (beginning from £6.52 for the Business Domain package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual server may seem tough to handle. That's probably why 'GS Studios' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a conventional shared website hosting package through a website hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not offer full root-level access (we, at sigmasupplies.co.uk, think that this is a minor problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting CP interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This suggests that a well-known graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not feel confident enough to administer a VPS web server, but at the same time need more power and reserves than a Virtual Private Server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'GS Studios' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to sigmasupplies.co.uk, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'GS Studios' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' expectations, 'GS Studios' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'GS Studios', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from sigmasupplies.co.uk, believe that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'GS Studios' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'GS Studios' are all unmanaged. We, at sigmasupplies.co.uk, think that this is a tiny downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of £25.72 GBP. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sigmasupplies.co.uk's) prediction is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our (sigmasupplies.co.uk's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'GS Studios' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from £56.65 for the Atom 1 package.
