A survey of AIDA Host

We, at, have picked 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we consider that this short evaluation of 'AIDA Host' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in short:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting accounts supplied by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting accounts furnished by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house developed, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have enormous difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting distributors are unable to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to concoct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a real clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price really low (because multiple customers share the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you spare capital that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each web space hosting package supplied by 'AIDA Host' sports an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'AIDA Host' supplies shared web space hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole Globe is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'AIDA Host' are quite well stocked and are available at an attractive price (beginning from $4.11 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may appear hard to administer. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a regular shared web space hosting account through a hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not come with complete server root access (we, at, think of this as a slight defect), but the plus is that they are managed via the same CP GUI as the shared site hosting accounts. This hints that a user-friendly GUI is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual web server, yet demand more power and reserves than a VPS server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the VPS server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'AIDA Host' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'AIDA Host' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a slight disadvantage, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade includes various supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth package.
