An evaluation of AIDA Host

We, at, have chosen 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we suppose that this concise evaluation of 'AIDA Host' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in short:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared site hosting plans delivered by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans offered by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house devised, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a separate host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have big predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting suppliers are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (because multiple clients are located on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a basic website hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you save capital that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Every website hosting plan supplied by 'AIDA Host' contains an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'AIDA Host' offers shared web space hosting services in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, almost the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'AIDA Host' are quite well stocked and come at a very low price (beginning from $3.86 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web server may appear tough to handle. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared web site hosting package via a web page hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not offer full root access (we, at, consider this a slight inconvenience), but the good point is that they are administered via the same web hosting CP GUI as the shared website hosting accounts. This hints that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual web server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' can be classified as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, huge sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'AIDA Host' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' demands, 'AIDA Host' delivers an array of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of website. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server plans provided by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server arrives with free billing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web page hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Earth package.
