A review of NTC Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Hence we think that this concise review of 'NTC Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'NTC Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom built, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a different stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have enormous predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting companies cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must build their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the hosting price really low (since multiple users are located on the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small website hosting package that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your online presence expands. So, you economize capital that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each hosting account offered by 'NTC Hosting' comes with an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'NTC Hosting' supplies shared website hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the whole World is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'NTC Hosting' are really well appointed and come at a very affordable price (beginning from $4.95 for the Budget plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may seem difficult to manage. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to administering a typical shared web site hosting package through a web space hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting account such as a fee-free web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not come with server root access (we, at, think of this as a tiny negative point), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared web page hosting packages. This indicates that a familiar GUI is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to handle a VPS server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' can be categorized as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its users' expectations, 'NTC Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the web servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
