An evaluation of Angry Dog Hosting Company

We, at abomination.co.uk, have chosen 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. This is why we expect that this brief assessment of 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The first thing we, at abomination.co.uk, have perceived is the reasonable prices of the shared website hosting accounts furnished by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages supplied by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are driven by an in-house designed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have immense troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting vendors are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered web site hosting system. With a shared web space hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the webspace hosting price very low (because many customers use the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a powerful web hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end website hosting account that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Thus, you save capital that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every web hosting account supplied by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' sports an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' distributes shared website hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, practically the whole World is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are really well equipped and come at a very affordable price (starting from £3.75 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a VPS server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a typical shared webspace hosting account via a web page hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server account is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server plans do not include full server root access (we, at abomination.co.uk, deem this a minor disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web hosting CP tool as the shared site hosting plans. This suggests that a known graphical environment is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS hosting server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to abomination.co.uk, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' expectations, 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and steady work of any sort of site. According to 'Angry Dog Hosting Company', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from abomination.co.uk, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server offers free invoicing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are all unmanaged. We, at abomination.co.uk, count this as a minor negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £28.41 GBP. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (abomination.co.uk's) prediction is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any FTP software program useless. Our (abomination.co.uk's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from £71.03 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
