An evaluation of Akaditi

We, at agileinrwanda.org, have selected 'Akaditi' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this brief evaluation of 'Akaditi' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'Akaditi' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Akaditi' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at agileinrwanda.org, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared site hosting packages furnished by 'Akaditi'. 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 web hosting accounts delivered by 'Akaditi' are powered by an in-house devised, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting suppliers are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the web hosting price very low (since many users are located on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your website expands. Thus, you save capital that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each hosting account furnished by 'Akaditi' contains an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Akaditi' supplies shared web space hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole Earth is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast website hosting solution at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'Akaditi' are really well furnished and come at a low-cost price (beginning from £2.29 for the Tiny package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Akaditi' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a standard shared package via a CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared package such as a free site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not include full server root privileges (we, at agileinrwanda.org, consider this a little drawback), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared accounts. This goes to say that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a private virtual web hosting server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Akaditi' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from £16.93 for the Semi Pro package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to agileinrwanda.org, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Akaditi' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' anticipations, 'Akaditi' delivers an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the servers ship with: 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 fast and steady work of any type of website. In 'Akaditi's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from agileinrwanda.org, consider that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Akaditi' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server comes with free-of-charge billing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Akaditi' are all unmanaged. We, at agileinrwanda.org, deem this a little weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of £25.00 GBP. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (agileinrwanda.org's) prognosis is that the superb drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software pointless. Our (agileinrwanda.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Akaditi' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from £34.51 for the Florida package.
