An evaluation of Incite Graphics

We, at thesoundmag.com, have picked 'Incite Graphics' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this short review of 'Incite Graphics' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Incite Graphics' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Incite Graphics' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at thesoundmag.com, have noticed is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting plans provided by 'Incite Graphics'. 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 web page hosting plans delivered by 'Incite Graphics' are powered by an in-house designed, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting companies cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud website hosting system. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price amazingly low (since multiple users are located on the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web site hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you save cash that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each and every site hosting package supplied by 'Incite Graphics' contains an online website builder and over 40 popular script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Incite Graphics' distributes shared website hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the whole Globe is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'Incite Graphics' are very well equipped and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $5.47 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a VPS web hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Incite Graphics' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a standard shared hosting account through a website hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not ship with full root-level access (we, at thesoundmag.com, count this as a little drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same Control Panel user interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This indicates that a recognizable graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a private virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and system resources than a virtual web hosting server can supply them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful first-class servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the virtual servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Incite Graphics' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In thesoundmag.com's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'Incite Graphics' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' requirements, 'Incite Graphics' provides a selection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the web servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of website. In 'Incite Graphics's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from thesoundmag.com, consider that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Incite Graphics' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Incite Graphics' are all unmanaged. We, at thesoundmag.com, regard this as a small problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (thesoundmag.com's) prediction is that the superb point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our (thesoundmag.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Incite Graphics' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $75.00 for the Atom 1 package.
