A review of 9 Cube Hosting

We, at, have selected '9 Cube Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we anticipate that this brief assessment of '9 Cube Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, since the mere truth is that '9 Cube Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '9 Cube Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the cut-rate prices of the shared web page hosting packages offered by '9 Cube Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by '9 Cube Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an independent bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to set up their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since lots of clients use one and the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered website hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, escaping a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web space hosting account that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you economize cash that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Each website hosting plan offered by '9 Cube Hosting' comprises an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. '9 Cube Hosting' delivers shared website hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, almost the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting services offered '9 Cube Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at an attractive price (beginning from $2.92 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem difficult to handle. That's perhaps why '9 Cube Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a normal shared account through a Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated package is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not ship with root access (we, at, consider this a small inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting accounts. This indicates that a user-friendly GUI is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual web hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '9 Cube Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $19.99 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from '9 Cube Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' expectations, '9 Cube Hosting' delivers a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of website. According to '9 Cube Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions provided by '9 Cube Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every server ships with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by '9 Cube Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $35.99 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by '9 Cube Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $44.99 for the Atom 2c package.
