An assessment of Smartway Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Smartway Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we imagine that this short review of 'Smartway Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Smartway Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Smartway Hosting' in short:

Shared Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the low-cost prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts furnished by 'Smartway Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans provided by 'Smartway Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a separate stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have colossal predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting distributors cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered web site hosting system. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the web hosting price very low (because lots of clients use one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. That way, you economize funds that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each site hosting package offered by 'Smartway Hosting' comes with an online site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Smartway Hosting' delivers shared web hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the entire Earth is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting solution at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Smartway Hosting' are really well appointed and are available at a very attractive price (starting from $3.25 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Smartway Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared package through a web page hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When matched against a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not ship with server root access (we, at, think that this is a slight drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed through the very same website hosting Control Panel tool as the shared hosting accounts. This hints that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual hosting server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Smartway Hosting' can be labeled as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Manager plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Smartway Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' anticipations, 'Smartway Hosting' provides a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of web site. According to 'Smartway Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Smartway Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Smartway Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Smartway Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
