An evaluation of AIDA Host

We, at, have selected 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we consider that this succinct evaluation of 'AIDA Host' is perchance going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'AIDA Host' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared website hosting packages furnished by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting accounts offered by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house devised, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an individual set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have considerable troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting corporations are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to construct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud hosting solution. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (because numerous customers use the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud site hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you spare funds that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each hosting account offered by 'AIDA Host' arrives with an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'AIDA Host' provides shared web hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the entire Earth is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting service at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts offered 'AIDA Host' are really well stocked and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $4.11 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual web server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to handling a standard shared account through a website hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not come with full server root access (we, at, regard this as a slight disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting plans. This means that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a private virtual server can confer to them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server web hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'AIDA Host' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'AIDA Host' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' requirements, 'AIDA Host' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable work of any type of site. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each server provides free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Earth plan.
