A survey of AS Web Design

We, at, have chosen 'AS Web Design' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we presume that this concise assessment of 'AS Web Design' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'AS Web Design' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'AS Web Design' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting solutions delivered by 'AS Web Design'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages provided by 'AS Web Design' are driven by an in-house developed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an individual pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have huge troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel webspace hosting companies cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web hosting platform. With a shared web hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (since many users utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web site hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end webspace hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your website expands. So, you spare money that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each website hosting plan furnished by 'AS Web Design' comprises an online site builder and over forty widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'AS Web Design' supplies shared hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, practically the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable site hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions offered 'AS Web Design' are very well equipped and come at an attractive price (starting from $3.75 for the One Website plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's probably why 'AS Web Design' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared web page hosting account via a webspace hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting plan 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 package is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When matched against a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not arrive with full root privileges (we, at, deem this a small weakness), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same web site hosting CP GUI as the shared hosting accounts. This indicates that a known GUI is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS web hosting server, yet require more power and reserves than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'AS Web Design' can be labeled as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'AS Web Design' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' demands, 'AS Web Design' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'AS Web Design's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'AS Web Design' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers furnished by 'AS Web Design' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight drawback, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'AS Web Design' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Dedicated package.
