An evaluation of Welcome to

We, at, have picked 'Welcome to' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. This is why we suppose that this succinct assessment of 'Welcome to' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Welcome to' presently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Welcome to' in short:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have discerned is the cheap prices of the shared web space hosting services offered by 'Welcome to'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans offered by 'Welcome to' are powered by an in-house designed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an autonomous set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have immense complications with, since cPanel is a single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel site hosting corporations cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered web page hosting solution. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price very low (because many users are located on one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny site hosting account that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you spare funds that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Every web site hosting package delivered by 'Welcome to' ships with an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Welcome to' offers shared webspace hosting plans in several different countries across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the entire Earth is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'Welcome to' are really well stocked and are available at a very cheap price (beginning from $3.41 for the mediano plan).

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Welcome to' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'Welcome to' provides an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the web servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of site. In 'Welcome to's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Welcome to' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server comes with free invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Welcome to' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Welcome to' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
