An evaluation of Loyalty Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Loyalty Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we believe that this concise assessment of 'Loyalty Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Loyalty Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Loyalty Hosting' in brief:

Shared Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have spotted is the reasonable prices of the shared webspace hosting packages delivered by 'Loyalty Hosting'. 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 space hosting accounts delivered by 'Loyalty Hosting' are driven by a custom developed, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a separate set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting companies are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must develop their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web space hosting price very low (since lots of users share one and the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site expands. In this way, you spare capital that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Each website hosting plan furnished by 'Loyalty Hosting' ships with an online site building tool and over forty popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Loyalty Hosting' furnishes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, practically the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web space hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'Loyalty Hosting' are quite well equipped and come at a very good price (starting from $3.95 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why 'Loyalty Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to handling a typical shared web site hosting plan through a web page hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not ship with complete server root access (we, at, count this as a slight problem), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same hosting CP user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This means that a user-friendly GUI is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a private virtual server, yet demand more power and resources than a private virtual web server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Loyalty Hosting' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $19.99 for the Semi-Dedicated Basic plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'Loyalty Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Loyalty Hosting' delivers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any sort of site. In 'Loyalty Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Loyalty Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free-of-cost billing software and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Loyalty Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight problem, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $31.99 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Loyalty Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $89.99 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
