A review of GeeksCloud

We, at, have selected 'GeeksCloud' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we anticipate that this brief review of 'GeeksCloud' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'GeeksCloud' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'GeeksCloud' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have spotted is the low prices of the shared site hosting packages provided by 'GeeksCloud'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting accounts offered by 'GeeksCloud' are driven by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have mammoth complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting suppliers are not able to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud webspace hosting system. With a shared web page hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price amazingly low (because many customers share the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web site hosting account that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence grows. That way, you spare cash that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still novel. Every web site hosting plan supplied by 'GeeksCloud' offers an online website builder and over 40 widely used script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'GeeksCloud' furnishes shared web site hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole Earth is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages delivered 'GeeksCloud' are really well equipped and are available at an excellent price (starting from $4.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem tough to administer. That's probably why 'GeeksCloud' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared package through a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a free web site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not come with root privileges (we, at, think of this as a little disadvantage), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server 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 higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'GeeksCloud' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $25.00 for the Galaxy plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'GeeksCloud' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' expectations, 'GeeksCloud' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'GeeksCloud's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'GeeksCloud' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every hosting server includes free invoicing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'GeeksCloud' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a minor inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'GeeksCloud' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Florida plan.
