A review of CIS Hosting

We, at, have selected 'CIS Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we think that this short review of 'CIS Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'CIS Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'CIS Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting solutions offered by 'CIS Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by 'CIS Hosting' are driven by a custom invented, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an individual bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have considerable problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud web page hosting system. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the web space hosting price very low (since multiple clients share the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web site hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you spare funds that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Each site hosting plan furnished by 'CIS Hosting' contains an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'CIS Hosting' delivers shared website hosting plans in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, practically the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'CIS Hosting' are quite well furnished and come at a low-cost price (starting from €3.14 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private web server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'CIS Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a regular shared website hosting plan via a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared package such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When matched against a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not include root privileges (we, at, count this as a little disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same web hosting CP tool as the shared website hosting accounts. This hints that a well-known GUI is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, yet need more power and features than a virtual private hosting server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web 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 furnished by 'CIS Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'CIS Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' anticipations, 'CIS Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'CIS Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'CIS Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server ships with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'CIS Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €29.01 EUR. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web space hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'CIS Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from €38.58 for the Atom 2c plan.
