A review of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we believe that this succinct review of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared web hosting solutions furnished by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting accounts furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting corporations are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud website hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (because multiple clients are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end web page hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small website hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you economize funds that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Each and every webspace hosting package offered by 'NTC Hosting' offers an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' furnishes shared web space hosting accounts in several different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting solution at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'NTC Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a good price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a standard shared web site hosting plan through a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting accounts. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated packages do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, deem this a minor weak point), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web site hosting CP user interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This indicates that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not have enough confidence to manage a VPS web server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a VPS web server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'NTC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' demands, 'NTC Hosting' offers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each web server provides free invoicing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a minor minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Gold 1 package.
