A survey of DLive

We, at ddmcadmission.in, have selected 'DLive' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we deem that this concise evaluation of 'DLive' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'DLive' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'DLive' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at ddmcadmission.in, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared web space hosting services provided by 'DLive'. 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 space hosting packages furnished by 'DLive' are driven by an in-house designed, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a different stack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have mammoth troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting firms cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must concoct their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the hosting price very low (since a lot of users utilize one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really require, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you economize funds that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Every web site hosting account supplied by 'DLive' offers an online website building tool and over forty widely used script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'DLive' furnishes shared site hosting plans in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire planet is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting services supplied 'DLive' are really well equipped and come at a very modest price (starting from $6.25 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual web server may seem hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'DLive' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a conventional shared web page hosting account via a hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not offer full server root access (we, at ddmcadmission.in, deem this a tiny minus), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same hosting CP interface as the shared website hosting packages. This implies that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to manage a VPS server, yet demand more power and features than a private virtual web server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'DLive' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Mercury plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In ddmcadmission.in's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'DLive' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' expectations, 'DLive' offers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of website. According to 'DLive', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from ddmcadmission.in, think that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'DLive' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each server provides free-of-cost billing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'DLive' are all unmanaged. We, at ddmcadmission.in, think that this is a little minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ddmcadmission.in's) prediction is that the remarkable point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably make the use of any FTP software program useless. Our (ddmcadmission.in's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'DLive' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
