A review of AIDA Host

We, at, have chosen 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this succinct review of 'AIDA Host' is maybe going to be very helpful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'AIDA Host' currently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have discerned is the cut-rate prices of the shared website hosting solutions offered by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans furnished by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an individual set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have mammoth predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of customers are located on the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a low-end web hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Every hosting account delivered by 'AIDA Host' arrives with an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'AIDA Host' distributes shared web hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the entire World is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'AIDA Host' are quite well stocked and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $4.11 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to managing a normal shared site hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free web site building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not include full root access (we, at, think of this as a minor downside), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting plans. This signifies that a recognizable graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual private web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'AIDA Host' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' anticipations, 'AIDA Host' delivers a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of website. According to 'AIDA Host', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server ships with free billing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a minor defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several website hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth package.
