A review of 1Dur Hosting

We, at, have chosen '1Dur Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. Hence we imagine that this brief assessment of '1Dur Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that '1Dur Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '1Dur Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared site hosting packages supplied by '1Dur 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 page hosting accounts supplied by '1Dur Hosting' are driven by a custom created, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an independent stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have immense troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting vendors cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud web space hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the hosting price really low (since multiple clients share one and the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web space hosting account that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your site expands. In this way, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each web space hosting plan delivered by '1Dur Hosting' includes an online site builder and over 40 widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. '1Dur Hosting' provides shared hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions delivered '1Dur Hosting' are very well furnished and are available at a very modest price (beginning from £4.42 for the 1 Domain Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why '1Dur Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to handling a conventional shared web hosting account via a site hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When matched against a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not arrive with full root access (we, at, deem this a slight weak point), but the plus is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting plans. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a virtual web server, yet need more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '1Dur Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the guys from '1Dur Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' expectations, '1Dur Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady performance of any sort of site. According to '1Dur Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by '1Dur Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server provides free-of-charge billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by '1Dur Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £24.95 GBP. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of website hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '1Dur Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from £56.65 for the Atom 1 package.
