A survey of NTC Hosting

We, at, have picked 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. Hence we presume that this succinct evaluation of 'NTC Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have observed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web site hosting solutions furnished by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by an in-house designed, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an individual set of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have big problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting distributors are unable to 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 platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered site hosting solution. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (because many clients use the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really need, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a small hosting package that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you spare funds that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every web hosting package supplied by 'NTC Hosting' ships with an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared website hosting plans in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, practically the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'NTC Hosting' are really well furnished and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear tough to handle. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a conventional shared website hosting account through a site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting account such as a fee-free web site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not come with complete server root access (we, at, deem this a small weakness), but the plus is that they are managed through the same hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This suggests that a recognizable graphical user interface is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to administer a virtual web server, yet require more power and reserves than a VPS can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'NTC Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' needs, 'NTC Hosting' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable work of any type of site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
