A survey of Rocket Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Rocket Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Hence we deem that this brief review of 'Rocket Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Rocket Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Rocket Hosting' in brief:

Shared Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have spotted is the cheap prices of the shared web space hosting solutions provided by 'Rocket Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts furnished by 'Rocket Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a separate group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have immense problems with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel site hosting firms are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (since lots of users use the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you save capital that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each and every webspace hosting account supplied by 'Rocket Hosting' boasts an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Rocket Hosting' provides shared web hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Rocket Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at an attractive price (beginning from $5.50 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no experience, a private virtual server may seem difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Rocket Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a normal shared account through a web site hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web site hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not ship with full root access (we, at, regard this as a tiny problem), but the advantage is that they are managed through the very same site hosting CP interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This means that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual private web server, but at the same time need more power and features than a VPS web server can provide them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the private virtual 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 supplied by 'Rocket Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $25.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Rocket Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' requirements, 'Rocket Hosting' delivers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady work of any type of site. In 'Rocket Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'Rocket Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server includes free-of-cost billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Rocket Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a tiny weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of webspace hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Rocket Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
