An evaluation of IES

We, at sqibo.com, have picked 'IES' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we suppose that this concise review of 'IES' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'IES' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'IES' in brief:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at sqibo.com, have observed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web hosting accounts offered by 'IES'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages furnished by 'IES' are driven by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have big complications with, since cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting firms are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the website hosting price very low (because plenty of users share the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really require, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a basic web hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you save capital that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Every website hosting package offered by 'IES' boasts an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'IES' provides shared web hosting packages in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the whole Earth is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast website hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'IES' are quite well stocked and are available at an attractive price (beginning from $2.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS web server may seem difficult to manage. That's probably why 'IES' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a regular shared webspace hosting account via a web space hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, 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 compared to a shared package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not come with complete server root access (we, at sqibo.com, think of this as a slight weak point), but the good point is that they are administered via the same Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting packages. This hints that a known graphical interface is available to all clients who are not confident enough to administer a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'IES' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to sqibo.com, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'IES' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'IES' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'IES's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from sqibo.com, believe that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'IES' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every server offers free-of-charge billing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'IES' are all unmanaged. We, at sqibo.com, think of this as a little downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sqibo.com's) prediction is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our (sqibo.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'IES' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $270.00 for the Xeon Scalable 16c package.
