An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'NTC Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have detected is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting accounts offered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts offered by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom built, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web space hosting vendors are unable to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered site hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price really low (because multiple customers share one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered website hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web page hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your website expands. So, you save funds that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each hosting package provided by 'NTC Hosting' offers an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' offers shared web space hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the entire Globe is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting services provided 'NTC Hosting' are very well stocked and come at a very affordable price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a regular shared site hosting package through a web hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free site builder and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include full root privileges (we, at, regard this as a minor weak point), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting CP user interface as the shared web hosting plans. This indicates that a well-known graphical interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'NTC Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' demands, 'NTC Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the web servers include: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of web site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each web server comes with free-of-charge billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
