An assessment of Angry Dog Hosting Company

We, at foodbloggers.co.uk, have chosen 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we suppose that this succinct review of 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at foodbloggers.co.uk, have spotted is the modest prices of the shared hosting accounts provided by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company'. 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 website hosting accounts offered by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are driven by an in-house devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an autonomous host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have enormous troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based hosting firms cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must concoct their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud web hosting solution. With a shared account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the website hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers share one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed demand, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web site hosting plan that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. So, you spare money that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each web site hosting plan supplied by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' comes with an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' supplies shared website hosting solutions in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are quite well appointed and come at an affordable price (beginning from £3.75 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared web page hosting account via a site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared accounts. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not come with root privileges (we, at foodbloggers.co.uk, regard this as a little downside), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This implies that a well-known GUI is accessible by all users who are not confident enough to manage a virtual server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a virtual server can bestow on them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' can be classified as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In foodbloggers.co.uk's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' needs, 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' provides a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'Angry Dog Hosting Company's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from foodbloggers.co.uk, believe that all dedicated server plans offered by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' are all unmanaged. We, at foodbloggers.co.uk, regard this as a little weak point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of £26.62 GBP. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (foodbloggers.co.uk's) prediction is that the amazing point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any FTP client useless. Our (foodbloggers.co.uk's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Angry Dog Hosting Company' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from £141.99 for the Xeon 3 package.
