A review of Macrocyber

We, at thecresthotel.com, have chosen 'Macrocyber' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Therefore we expect that this concise assessment of 'Macrocyber' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Macrocyber' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Macrocyber' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at thecresthotel.com, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting solutions delivered by 'Macrocyber'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans furnished by 'Macrocyber' are driven by a custom created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a separate host of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have huge difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting vendors are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered website hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the price amazingly low (because plenty of clients share one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic webspace hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you spare capital that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each and every web space hosting account supplied by 'Macrocyber' arrives with an online website building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Macrocyber' furnishes shared site hosting services in several different countries around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting solution at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Macrocyber' are quite well stocked and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from £2.82 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'Macrocyber' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a regular shared website hosting account through a webspace hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting account such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated plans do not come with root access (we, at thecresthotel.com, regard this as a little problem), but the good point is that they are administered through the same web site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This implies that a recognizable GUI is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to handle a VPS server, yet require more power and resources than a private virtual hosting server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Macrocyber' can be branded as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to thecresthotel.com, large sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Macrocyber' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' requirements, 'Macrocyber' provides a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any type of site. According to 'Macrocyber', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from thecresthotel.com, think that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'Macrocyber' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server comes with free-of-charge billing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'Macrocyber' are all unmanaged. We, at thecresthotel.com, think that this is a small problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to £26.48 GBP. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (thecresthotel.com's) forecast is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (thecresthotel.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Macrocyber' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from £65.36 for the Atom 2 package.
