A review of eTexHosting

We, at, have chosen 'eTexHosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we believe that this brief assessment of 'eTexHosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'eTexHosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'eTexHosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have seen is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting plans supplied by 'eTexHosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts provided by 'eTexHosting' are driven by a custom built, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have enormous troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting companies cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the site hosting price amazingly low (since lots of customers share the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. That way, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every website hosting account provided by 'eTexHosting' comprises an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'eTexHosting' supplies shared web space hosting packages in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole planet is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting services furnished 'eTexHosting' are very well appointed and are available at a very modest price (starting from $9.99 for the Lite Hosting Plan plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private web server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'eTexHosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a normal shared package via a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When compared to a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not come with full root privileges (we, at, regard this as a slight defect), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting packages. This means that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a virtual server can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'eTexHosting' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'eTexHosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' demands, 'eTexHosting' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any type of web site. In 'eTexHosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans provided by 'eTexHosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'eTexHosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the outstanding point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'eTexHosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
