A survey of Uni-Bz

We, at 1dh.us, have selected 'Uni-Bz' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we deem that this succinct review of 'Uni-Bz' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Uni-Bz' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Uni-Bz' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first detail we, at 1dh.us, have seen is the budget prices of the shared site hosting packages furnished by 'Uni-Bz'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages offered by 'Uni-Bz' are powered by a custom devised, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have huge complications with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting suppliers are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must create their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (because a lot of users utilize one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end website hosting package that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your website grows. So, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting account offered by 'Uni-Bz' boasts an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Uni-Bz' distributes shared hosting packages in several different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, nearly the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting services offered 'Uni-Bz' are really well furnished and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $3.00 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why 'Uni-Bz' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a standard shared site hosting plan through a web page hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not include root privileges (we, at 1dh.us, think that this is a minor drawback), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared plans. This indicates that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all users who are not confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Uni-Bz' can be classified as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi-dedicated L plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In 1dh.us's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'Uni-Bz' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' requirements, 'Uni-Bz' supplies a collection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'Uni-Bz's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from 1dh.us, think that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Uni-Bz' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every server arrives with free billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Uni-Bz' are all unmanaged. We, at 1dh.us, think that this is a minor weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (1dh.us's) forecast is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (1dh.us's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Uni-Bz' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v3 package.
