An evaluation of DEVGRU

We, at mondaint.com, have selected 'DEVGRU' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. This is why we deem that this short assessment of 'DEVGRU' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'DEVGRU' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'DEVGRU' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The first thing we, at mondaint.com, have discerned is the low prices of the shared webspace hosting services provided by 'DEVGRU'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting packages offered by 'DEVGRU' are powered by an in-house designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an independent stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have mammoth difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting suppliers cannot add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud web site hosting system. With a shared plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (because a lot of clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end website hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site expands. So, you save money that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still novel. Each hosting package offered by 'DEVGRU' includes an online web site builder and over 40 popular script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'DEVGRU' provides shared website hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting solution at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'DEVGRU' are really well appointed and come at a very good price (beginning from $3.33 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a private virtual hosting server may appear difficult to administer. That's probably why 'DEVGRU' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a typical shared web page hosting package through a CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting account such as a fee-free site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When compared with a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated plans do not come with full server root access (we, at mondaint.com, consider this a tiny defect), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting CP user interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This means that a recognizable graphical environment is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual web server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a VPS server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'DEVGRU' can be defined as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In mondaint.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'DEVGRU' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' anticipations, 'DEVGRU' supplies a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. In 'DEVGRU's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from mondaint.com, think that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'DEVGRU' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server comes with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'DEVGRU' are all unmanaged. We, at mondaint.com, count this as a minor negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (mondaint.com's) forecast is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our (mondaint.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'DEVGRU' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $75.00 for the Atom 1 package.
