A survey of AIDA Host

We, at, have picked 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we expect that this brief review of 'AIDA Host' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have detected is the reasonable prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts supplied by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages supplied by 'AIDA Host' are powered by a custom invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an individual set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have enormous predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting suppliers cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered web site hosting system. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price really low (because multiple users share one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small web site hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you spare cash that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting plan offered by 'AIDA Host' arrives with an online website builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'AIDA Host' provides shared web hosting solutions in several different countries across the World. There is one server farm 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, almost the entire World is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'AIDA Host' are quite well furnished and come at an excellent price (starting from $4.11 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a conventional shared web site hosting account via a Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting account such as a fee-free site builder and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, consider this a tiny drawback), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting plans. This means that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a virtual web server can supply them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-class servers as the ones which host the VPS server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'AIDA Host' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' needs, 'AIDA Host' supplies an assortment of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'AIDA Host', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny defect, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the great drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Earth plan.
