A survey of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Hence we expect that this brief evaluation of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, 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 a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at, have noticed is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom created, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a different pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting distributors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must concoct their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the price really low (because lots of users utilize the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. In this way, you spare money that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still new. Every website hosting plan provided by 'NTC Hosting' contains an online web site building tool and over forty popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'NTC Hosting' furnishes shared hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and dependable hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'NTC Hosting' are quite well equipped and come at a very affordable price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual server may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to managing a conventional shared site hosting plan via a webspace hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared plan such as a fee-free site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server package is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When compared to a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not arrive with complete root-level access (we, at, regard this as a small weak point), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared web hosting plans. This hints that a well-known graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a private virtual hosting server, yet require more power and system resources than a VPS web hosting server can give them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be branded as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' expectations, 'NTC Hosting' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the servers sport: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes various supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the great point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
