An evaluation of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we think that this short review of 'NTC Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'NTC Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have detected is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting services offered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts provided by 'NTC Hosting' are powered by a custom developed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have considerable predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting companies are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by an actual clustered web site hosting system. With a shared package, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the hosting price really low (because multiple users share the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page grows. Thus, you spare funds that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Every web page hosting account furnished by 'NTC Hosting' arrives with an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'NTC Hosting' distributes shared webspace hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the entire planet is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'NTC Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a virtual private web server may appear tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a conventional shared hosting account via a web page hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When matched against a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not ship with full server root access (we, at, regard this as a slight weakness), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting plans. This goes to say that a known graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a private virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can deliver. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'NTC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' demands, 'NTC Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. According to 'NTC Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
