A review of Hosting Dara

We, at, have picked 'Hosting Dara' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we think that this brief assessment of 'Hosting Dara' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Hosting Dara' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hosting Dara' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the low prices of the shared hosting accounts offered by 'Hosting Dara'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting accounts provided by 'Hosting Dara' are driven by a custom developed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based webspace hosting corporations are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud website hosting solution. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of customers 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 solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small website hosting plan that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting package offered by 'Hosting Dara' arrives with an online web site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Hosting Dara' distributes shared web hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'Hosting Dara' are really well appointed and come at an attractive price (beginning from $4.42 for the Economy package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear tough to administer. That's probably why 'Hosting Dara' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a typical shared webspace hosting package through a site hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a free website builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When compared to a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not come with full root privileges (we, at, think that this is a small weak point), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web page hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a private virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-end servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Hosting Dara' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi-dedicated L plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'Hosting Dara' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' needs, 'Hosting Dara' delivers a selection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'Hosting Dara's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Hosting Dara' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server comes with free-of-cost billing transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Hosting Dara' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Hosting Dara' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
