An evaluation of KOS HOSTING

We, at, have chosen 'KOS HOSTING' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we presume that this concise evaluation of 'KOS HOSTING' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'KOS HOSTING' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering nearly the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'KOS HOSTING' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared web hosting services offered by 'KOS HOSTING'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' are driven by an in-house developed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an individual set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting companies are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud website hosting platform. With a shared account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of clients are located on the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you actually demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web page grows. Thus, you spare money that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each web site hosting plan delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' arrives with an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'KOS HOSTING' delivers shared webspace hosting accounts in several different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'KOS HOSTING' are quite well equipped and come at an excellent price (beginning from €3.25 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS web server may seem difficult to manage. That's probably why 'KOS HOSTING' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared web hosting plan via a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not offer full root privileges (we, at, regard this as a minor weakness), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared hosting packages. This means that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to manage a private virtual server, but at the same time need more power and features than a private virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'KOS HOSTING' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from €19.99 for the Mini package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'KOS HOSTING' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'KOS HOSTING' provides a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. According to 'KOS HOSTING', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'KOS HOSTING' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each web server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of €33.22 EUR. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of website hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'KOS HOSTING' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from €121.81 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
