A review of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. Hence we consider that this succinct assessment of 'NTC Hosting' 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 say individuals from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have detected is the cut-rate prices of the shared website hosting packages furnished by 'NTC Hosting'. 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 page hosting plans supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom devised, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a separate stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have big problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting vendors are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must build their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (because lots of users use one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a small website hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you spare capital that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still novel. Every webspace hosting package delivered by 'NTC Hosting' ships with an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'NTC Hosting' supplies shared webspace hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting service at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages furnished 'NTC Hosting' are really well furnished and are available at a good price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared webspace hosting plan via a web hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times greater than that of a shared hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When matched against a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not include server root access (we, at, count this as a slight minus), but the good point is that they are administered via the same web space hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can deliver. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' can be branded as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'NTC Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' demands, 'NTC Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the web servers include: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-charge billing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $90.00 for the Gold 1 package.
