An evaluation of Rai Hosting

We, at wnam.org, have picked 'Rai Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. This is why we consider that this succinct assessment of 'Rai Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Rai Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Rai Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at wnam.org, have observed is the modest prices of the shared web site hosting accounts supplied by 'Rai Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts offered by 'Rai Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a separate pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting distributors cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the webspace hosting price very low (because multiple customers are located on the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic webspace hosting account that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you save funds that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting plan provided by 'Rai Hosting' sports an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Rai Hosting' delivers shared web hosting packages in several different regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, approximately the entire Earth is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable hosting service at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting services offered 'Rai Hosting' are very well equipped and are available at a very affordable price (beginning from $2.75 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Rai Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a standard shared site hosting plan via a hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When contrasted with a shared hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer server root access (we, at wnam.org, think of this as a small weakness), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web space hosting Control Panel tool as the shared webspace hosting plans. This indicates that a well-known graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a private virtual web server can furnish them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Rai Hosting' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to wnam.org, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Rai Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' anticipations, 'Rai Hosting' supplies a selection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers include: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. According to 'Rai Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from wnam.org, think that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'Rai Hosting' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Rai Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at wnam.org, consider this a small drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (wnam.org's) prognosis is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (wnam.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Rai Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
