A review of vPro Hosting

We, at, have selected 'vPro Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we think that this short evaluation of 'vPro Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'vPro Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'vPro Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have perceived is the cut-rate prices of the shared web page hosting solutions provided by 'vPro Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans delivered by 'vPro Hosting' are driven by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an individual stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting companies are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by a real cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus keeping the website hosting price very low (since plenty of users utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your site expands. That way, you spare capital that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Each and every web hosting account furnished by 'vPro Hosting' comprises an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'vPro Hosting' delivers shared web space hosting services in several different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the whole World is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting services provided 'vPro Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a very attractive price (starting from $3.33 for the Vpro SMB package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'vPro Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared web site hosting plan through a CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not offer complete server root access (we, at, consider this a little problem), but the plus is that they are managed through the same hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This hints that a user-friendly graphical environment is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to manage a VPS server, yet need more power and features than a VPS server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'vPro Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Manager package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'vPro Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' requirements, 'vPro Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. According to 'vPro Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'vPro Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'vPro Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a small defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'vPro Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
