An assessment of Blue Ribbon Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. This is why we suppose that this concise assessment of 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have noted is the low prices of the shared web hosting solutions supplied by 'Blue Ribbon 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 website hosting packages offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are powered by a custom invented, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have big difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel webspace hosting vendors are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (because many users are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web site hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Thus, you save funds that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Every hosting package provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' sports an online web site builder and more than forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' provides shared web site hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting service at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at an excellent price (beginning from $4.41 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may appear troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared web site hosting package through a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not include root-level access (we, at, deem this a slight problem), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This hints that a recognizable graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS web server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a VPS web server can deliver. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' can be branded as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Manager plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of website. According to 'Blue Ribbon Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every web server comes with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a little inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web space hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
