An assessment of Allure Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Allure Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this short evaluation of 'Allure Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Allure Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Allure Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have discerned is the cheap prices of the shared web space hosting services offered by 'Allure Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans delivered by 'Allure Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a different stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have mammoth predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting providers are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to concoct their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the price really low (because numerous customers share the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web hosting package that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you economize funds that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting package provided by 'Allure Hosting' ships with an online web site builder and over forty popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'Allure Hosting' distributes shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter 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. That way, nearly the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting service at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'Allure Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at a very good price (beginning from £4.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may seem troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why 'Allure Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a conventional shared webspace hosting package via a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When matched against a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include full server root privileges (we, at, think that this is a slight drawback), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a Virtual Private Server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which host the virtual web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Allure Hosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'Allure Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'Allure Hosting' provides an assortment of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of website. In 'Allure Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Allure Hosting' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server arrives with free invoicing software and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Allure Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of £26.71 GBP. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of webspace hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Allure Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from £142.47 for the Xeon 3 package.
