A review of NTC Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we deem that this succinct evaluation of 'NTC Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in short:

Shared Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have discerned is the low prices of the shared web site hosting services offered by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting accounts delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a different pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have enormous troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting corporations are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by an actual cloud hosting system. With a shared package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (since multiple clients are hosted on the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny web space hosting package that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still new. Every hosting package offered by 'NTC Hosting' boasts an online website builder and over 40 widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'NTC Hosting' supplies shared webspace hosting packages in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole World is covered to provide you and your visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting solution at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting plans provided 'NTC Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a good price (starting from $5.25 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear complicated to manage. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a normal shared web space hosting plan via a website hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared to a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not come with full root privileges (we, at, consider this a small defect), but the advantage is that they are managed through the very same Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting plans. This implies that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a VPS web hosting server, yet demand more power and system resources than a private virtual server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'NTC Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' anticipations, 'NTC Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the web servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'NTC Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each hosting server includes free-of-cost billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor weak point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
