A review of Seanic

We, at aquilagt.com, have chosen 'Seanic' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. This is why we expect that this succinct evaluation of 'Seanic' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Seanic' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Seanic' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at aquilagt.com, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting services offered by 'Seanic'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans delivered by 'Seanic' are driven by a custom designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an individual host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have huge problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting suppliers are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to design their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by a real clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous users use the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, escaping a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end web hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you economize funds that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each and every web page hosting plan delivered by 'Seanic' includes an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Seanic' distributes shared web space hosting solutions in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the whole World is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting services offered 'Seanic' are quite well stocked and are available at a very low price (starting from $3.74 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Seanic' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a conventional shared website hosting package via a website hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated plan is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web page hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not offer complete root access (we, at aquilagt.com, deem this a little inconvenience), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same hosting CP tool as the shared webspace hosting plans. This indicates that a user-friendly GUI is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a virtual server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which host the VPS server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Seanic' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $16.50 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to aquilagt.com, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Seanic' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'Seanic' supplies a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any sort of website. According to 'Seanic', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from aquilagt.com, deem that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Seanic' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server offers free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Seanic' are all unmanaged. We, at aquilagt.com, count this as a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (aquilagt.com's) prognosis is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly render the use of any FTP software useless. Our (aquilagt.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Seanic' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $42.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
