An evaluation of Get a Dot Name

We, at, have picked 'Get a Dot Name' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we deem that this concise assessment of 'Get a Dot Name' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Get a Dot Name' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Get a Dot Name' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting packages offered by 'Get a Dot Name'. 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 site hosting plans offered by 'Get a Dot Name' are driven by an in-house built, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an independent bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have immense complications with, since cPanel is a single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting companies cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to set up their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the web space hosting price amazingly low (since numerous clients are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web page hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. That way, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each web page hosting package offered by 'Get a Dot Name' comes with an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Get a Dot Name' provides shared website hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the whole Globe is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'Get a Dot Name' are quite well equipped and come at an affordable price (starting from $6.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Get a Dot Name' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared hosting plan through a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting plan such as a free website builder and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not ship with complete root access (we, at, regard this as a small inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This suggests that a recognizable GUI is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, yet require more power and system resources than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Get a Dot Name' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Get a Dot Name' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' anticipations, 'Get a Dot Name' delivers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'Get a Dot Name', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Get a Dot Name' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Get a Dot Name' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the amazing point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Get a Dot Name' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
