A survey of Smartway Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Smartway Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we presume that this short assessment of 'Smartway Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Smartway Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Smartway Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the budget prices of the shared web site hosting packages furnished by 'Smartway Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages supplied by 'Smartway Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting vendors are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud web hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the web hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of customers are located on the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web site hosting package that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you economize capital that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each and every hosting plan offered by 'Smartway Hosting' comes with an online site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Smartway Hosting' delivers shared website hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the entire World is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast site hosting service at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Smartway Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a very modest price (starting from $3.25 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Smartway Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to managing a regular shared web hosting package through a web hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When compared to a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not offer server root access (we, at, think of this as a slight drawback), but the good point is that they are administered via the same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a VPS can bestow on them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Smartway Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Manager plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'Smartway Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' expectations, 'Smartway Hosting' offers a number of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any sort of site. According to 'Smartway Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Smartway Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server arrives with free-of-cost billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Smartway Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Smartway Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
