A review of System X Designs

We, at hiringbud.com, have selected 'System X Designs' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Hence we suppose that this brief evaluation of 'System X Designs' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'System X Designs' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'System X Designs' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at hiringbud.com, have seen is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting packages furnished by 'System X Designs'. 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 website hosting packages offered by 'System X Designs' are powered by an in-house developed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an independent stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting suppliers are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price very low (because plenty of clients are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still novel. Each and every webspace hosting plan provided by 'System X Designs' includes an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'System X Designs' supplies shared web site hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'System X Designs' are quite well appointed and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $5.75 for the Business package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'System X Designs' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a standard shared site hosting package via a site hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When compared to a shared web hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include full root access (we, at hiringbud.com, think that this is a slight drawback), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web hosting CP interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This hints that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which host the VPS web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'System X Designs' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In hiringbud.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'System X Designs' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' requirements, 'System X Designs' offers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'System X Designs', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from hiringbud.com, think that all dedicated server plans offered by 'System X Designs' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server offers free billing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'System X Designs' are all unmanaged. We, at hiringbud.com, count this as a little weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (hiringbud.com's) prediction is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our (hiringbud.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'System X Designs' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
