An assessment of AIDA Host

We, at, have chosen 'AIDA Host' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. This is why we imagine that this concise evaluation of 'AIDA Host' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'AIDA Host' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering nearly the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have detected is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting packages furnished by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'AIDA Host' are powered by a custom devised, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have huge difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel site hosting vendors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting system. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the hosting price very low (since numerous users utilize one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a small web hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Hence, you economize money that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each website hosting package furnished by 'AIDA Host' contains an online site builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'AIDA Host' offers shared web site hosting accounts in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting service at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting packages furnished 'AIDA Host' are really well appointed and are available at an excellent price (starting from $4.11 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'AIDA Host' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a normal shared account through a web space hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting accounts. When compared with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not ship with full server root access (we, at, deem this a small weakness), but the good point is that they are administered via the same web site hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting packages. This signifies that a familiar graphical user interface is accessible by all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a VPS web server can bestow on them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'AIDA Host' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, huge sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'AIDA Host' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' requirements, 'AIDA Host' provides a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the web servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of website. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server includes free invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Earth package.
