An assessment of Akaditi

We, at sokoapp.com, have chosen 'Akaditi' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. This is why we think that this succinct review of 'Akaditi' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Akaditi' presently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Akaditi' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at sokoapp.com, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting plans delivered by 'Akaditi'. 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 website hosting plans furnished by 'Akaditi' are powered by a custom invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting firms cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud hosting platform. With a shared package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the site hosting price very low (since a lot of clients are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web page hosting plan that cannot host your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your online presence expands. In this way, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting package offered by 'Akaditi' contains an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Akaditi' offers shared web site hosting plans in several different countries across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting services furnished 'Akaditi' are really well furnished and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from £2.42 for the Tiny plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a VPS server may appear troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Akaditi' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared website hosting plan through a webspace hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting accounts. When matched against a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not arrive with complete root-level access (we, at sokoapp.com, deem this a slight weakness), but the plus is that they are administered via the same hosting CP interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This signifies that a recognizable graphical interface is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a private virtual web server can furnish them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Akaditi' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Pro plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to sokoapp.com, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Akaditi' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' demands, 'Akaditi' delivers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'Akaditi's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from sokoapp.com, think that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Akaditi' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every hosting server arrives with free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Akaditi' are all unmanaged. We, at sokoapp.com, regard this as a small weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of £26.39 GBP. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sokoapp.com's) forecast is that the magnificent point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our (sokoapp.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Akaditi' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from £98.83 for the Xeon 1.8 package.
