An evaluation of LBM Hosting

We, at lbmhosting.com, have selected 'LBM Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we deem that this concise evaluation of 'LBM Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'LBM Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing almost the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'LBM Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at lbmhosting.com, have noticed is the modest prices of the shared website hosting solutions furnished by 'LBM Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting plans delivered by 'LBM Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an independent stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have considerable troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting providers cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to develop their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered site hosting platform. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the price really low (since many customers use the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. Thus, you economize capital that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every site hosting package delivered by 'LBM Hosting' ships with an online site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'LBM Hosting' distributes shared site hosting plans in several different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the entire World is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'LBM Hosting' are quite well appointed and are available at a very low price (starting from $3.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may appear difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'LBM Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared web site hosting plan through a web site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not offer full root-level access (we, at lbmhosting.com, regard this as a minor negative point), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same hosting CP user interface as the shared web space hosting accounts. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a Virtual Private Server, yet require more power and reserves than a VPS web server can provide them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'LBM Hosting' can be classified as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In lbmhosting.com's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'LBM Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its users' expectations, 'LBM Hosting' delivers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of site. According to 'LBM Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from lbmhosting.com, think that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'LBM Hosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each web server offers free-of-charge billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'LBM Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at lbmhosting.com, think that this is a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (lbmhosting.com's) forecast is that the superb point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (lbmhosting.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'LBM Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
