An evaluation of JamaSoft

We, at alwatan.sa, have picked 'JamaSoft' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we expect that this brief assessment of 'JamaSoft' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'JamaSoft' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'JamaSoft' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at alwatan.sa, have seen is the affordable prices of the shared web page hosting services furnished by 'JamaSoft'. 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 webspace hosting packages offered by 'JamaSoft' are powered by an in-house devised, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an individual group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have big difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting companies are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the site hosting price amazingly low (because lots of users are hosted on the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each web hosting account delivered by 'JamaSoft' comes with an online website builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'JamaSoft' supplies shared webspace hosting services in several different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'JamaSoft' are very well stocked and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $3.95 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'JamaSoft' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared site hosting plan through a CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting account such as a free site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not ship with complete root access (we, at alwatan.sa, consider this a slight negative point), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same website hosting CP GUI as the shared website hosting accounts. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'JamaSoft' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to alwatan.sa, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the guys from 'JamaSoft' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' requirements, 'JamaSoft' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'JamaSoft', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from alwatan.sa, think that all dedicated server specs provided by 'JamaSoft' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server offers free invoicing transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'JamaSoft' are all unmanaged. We, at alwatan.sa, think of this as a small weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (alwatan.sa's) prognosis is that the great drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP client futile. Our (alwatan.sa's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'JamaSoft' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $75.00 for the Atom 2 plan.
