A survey of NTC Hosting

We, at, have picked 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we consider that this concise assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'NTC Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at, have detected is the modest prices of the shared hosting solutions offered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting accounts offered by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an independent pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have enormous troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud web site hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous customers are hosted on the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web page hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Each and every site hosting plan offered by 'NTC Hosting' comprises an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared website hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'NTC Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a good price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual web hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to managing a conventional shared web space hosting package through a web site hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting plan such as a free website builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with a shared hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not come with complete root access (we, at, think of this as a tiny problem), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same web hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical environment is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a private virtual web server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'NTC Hosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable work of any type of web site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every web server comes with free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a tiny drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Gold 1 package.
