A review of 9 Cube Hosting

We, at, have selected '9 Cube Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. This is why we think that this brief evaluation of '9 Cube Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that '9 Cube Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '9 Cube Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting accounts furnished by '9 Cube Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting accounts offered by '9 Cube Hosting' are powered by a custom created, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an individual stack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have immense predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud web space hosting system. With a shared web page hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the price amazingly low (since a lot of customers utilize one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web space hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you economize funds that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still novel. Every web space hosting package supplied by '9 Cube Hosting' sports an online site builder and more than 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design services. '9 Cube Hosting' provides shared web hosting services in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, nearly the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts provided '9 Cube Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at an excellent price (beginning from $2.92 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why '9 Cube Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a typical shared hosting package via a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a fee-free web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not ship with full root-level access (we, at, regard this as a slight inconvenience), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared site hosting accounts. This suggests that a well-known graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS web hosting server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '9 Cube Hosting' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $19.99 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the guys from '9 Cube Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' needs, '9 Cube Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of site. According to '9 Cube Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications supplied by '9 Cube Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server includes free invoicing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by '9 Cube Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little drawback, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $35.99 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '9 Cube Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $44.99 for the Atom 2c plan.
