An evaluation of Managed.gr

We, at renavlahopoulou.gr, have picked 'Managed.gr' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. This is why we believe that this concise assessment of 'Managed.gr' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Managed.gr' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Managed.gr' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at renavlahopoulou.gr, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared web page hosting services supplied by 'Managed.gr'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans furnished by 'Managed.gr' are driven by an in-house designed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an individual host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting corporations cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to develop their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud site hosting system. With a shared web page hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (because many users use one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. So, you save capital that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Every web page hosting plan provided by 'Managed.gr' includes an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Managed.gr' supplies shared web space hosting packages in several different countries across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole planet is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Managed.gr' are quite well equipped and are available at an attractive price (beginning from $4.75 for the Entry package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Managed.gr' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a regular shared webspace hosting package through a web site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not come with root-level access (we, at renavlahopoulou.gr, think of this as a little drawback), but the good point is that they are managed through the same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared plans. This signifies that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, yet demand more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the private virtual web hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Managed.gr' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $17.50 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In renavlahopoulou.gr's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Managed.gr' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'Managed.gr' supplies a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'Managed.gr', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from renavlahopoulou.gr, think that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Managed.gr' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server arrives with free billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Managed.gr' are all unmanaged. We, at renavlahopoulou.gr, count this as a small drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $31.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (renavlahopoulou.gr's) prognosis is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our (renavlahopoulou.gr's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Managed.gr' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $145.50 for the Xeon Scalable 8c package.
