A survey of pinkymonkey

We, at dindows.com, have chosen 'pinkymonkey' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we suppose that this succinct review of 'pinkymonkey' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'pinkymonkey' currently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'pinkymonkey' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at dindows.com, have seen is the low prices of the shared web site hosting services supplied by 'pinkymonkey'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts furnished by 'pinkymonkey' are powered by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an individual host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based website hosting suppliers are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must invent their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the website hosting price very low (because a lot of customers are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end site hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web site hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site expands. Hence, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each and every web site hosting plan furnished by 'pinkymonkey' arrives with an online website builder and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'pinkymonkey' distributes shared web site hosting accounts in several different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting services offered 'pinkymonkey' are quite well equipped and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from $4.33 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'pinkymonkey' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a regular shared web space hosting package via a website hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free web site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When matched against a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not arrive with full server root access (we, at dindows.com, consider this a little inconvenience), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This indicates that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS web server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which host the virtual server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'pinkymonkey' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In dindows.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'pinkymonkey' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'pinkymonkey' provides a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers ship with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of site. According to 'pinkymonkey', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from dindows.com, consider that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'pinkymonkey' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every server offers free-of-cost billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'pinkymonkey' are all unmanaged. We, at dindows.com, deem this a minor problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (dindows.com's) forecast is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our (dindows.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'pinkymonkey' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
