An evaluation of JDC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'JDC Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. This is why we imagine that this brief review of 'JDC Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere fact is that 'JDC Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'JDC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have noted is the low prices of the shared site hosting plans furnished by 'JDC Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages offered by 'JDC Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based webspace hosting corporations are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers share one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you save money that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still novel. Every web page hosting plan delivered by 'JDC Hosting' arrives with an online site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'JDC Hosting' distributes shared website hosting plans in a number of different regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, almost the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting service at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'JDC Hosting' are really well equipped and come at a low-cost price (beginning from £2.42 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a VPS server may appear tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'JDC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to administering a standard shared web space hosting plan via a web hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free website building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated account is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When compared to a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at, deem this a small problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the same web site hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting accounts. This means that a familiar GUI is offered to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a Virtual Private Server, yet require more power and features than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that due 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 VPS server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'JDC Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'JDC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' expectations, 'JDC Hosting' provides an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'JDC Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'JDC Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server provides free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'JDC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a tiny drawback, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of £26.39 GBP. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'JDC Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from £98.83 for the Xeon 1.8 plan.
