A survey of CrownHost

We, at, have picked 'CrownHost' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Hence we anticipate that this short review of 'CrownHost' is maybe going to be very helpful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'CrownHost' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'CrownHost' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have noted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting accounts supplied by 'CrownHost'. 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 web space hosting plans provided by 'CrownHost' are driven by a custom devised, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a different pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have huge troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting suppliers are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud hosting system. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the webspace hosting price very low (since many users utilize the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end website hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you economize money that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web page hosting package offered by 'CrownHost' comprises an online web site builder and over forty popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'CrownHost' supplies shared web site hosting accounts in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, almost the entire Globe is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting service at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting services delivered 'CrownHost' are quite well equipped and are available at a very affordable price (starting from €4.66 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's probably why 'CrownHost' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to handling a regular shared plan through a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a fee-free site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not come with root access (we, at, consider this a tiny negative point), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared packages. This signifies that a known GUI is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the private virtual web 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 offered by 'CrownHost' can be branded as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from €20.86 for the Mercury plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'CrownHost' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' anticipations, 'CrownHost' supplies a selection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the servers sport: multi-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 site. According to 'CrownHost', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server packages provided by 'CrownHost' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'CrownHost' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of €32.59 EUR. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several webspace hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'CrownHost' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from €40.74 for the Atom 2c plan.
