A review of Green Data Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Green Data Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this brief evaluation of 'Green Data Hosting' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Green Data Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Green Data Hosting' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have observed is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting accounts delivered by 'Green Data 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 hosting plans provided by 'Green Data Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting corporations are unable to include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to design their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered site hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the webspace hosting price very low (because multiple clients are located on one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web site hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Each webspace hosting plan supplied by 'Green Data Hosting' comprises an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Green Data Hosting' furnishes shared hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'Green Data Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a budget price (starting from £3.63 for the Economy package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Green Data Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a normal shared site hosting package through a site hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a free site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared plans. When compared with a shared plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not ship with root-level access (we, at, think of this as a slight inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web space hosting plans. This suggests that a known graphical environment is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can provide them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Green Data Hosting' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi-dedicated L plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Green Data Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' demands, 'Green Data Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'Green Data Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Green Data Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each hosting server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Green Data Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £28.74 GBP. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Green Data Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from £103.30 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
