A survey of NTC Hosting

We, at, have selected 'NTC Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. This is why we imagine that this brief assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'NTC Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'NTC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the budget prices of the shared web hosting accounts delivered by 'NTC 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 website hosting packages offered by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by an individual stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting providers are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price really low (because lots of clients use one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic site hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting account provided by 'NTC Hosting' arrives with an online site building tool and over forty popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'NTC Hosting' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'NTC Hosting' are very well appointed and come at a budget price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual web server may appear troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why 'NTC Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared web hosting package via a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared account such as a free web site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When compared with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not come with full root privileges (we, at, think that this is a minor inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same web site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting packages. This means that a familiar GUI is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, yet require more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $35.95 for the Pioneer package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' demands, 'NTC Hosting' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans provided by 'NTC Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free invoicing transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'NTC Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Gold 1 package.
