A survey of Cool Enterprises

We, at wocaca.org, have selected 'Cool Enterprises' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. This is why we expect that this succinct assessment of 'Cool Enterprises' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'Cool Enterprises' currently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Cool Enterprises' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at wocaca.org, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared site hosting services delivered by 'Cool Enterprises'. 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 accounts supplied by 'Cool Enterprises' are driven by an in-house invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a separate bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have considerable predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting firms cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to devise their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered web hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price very low (since many customers utilize the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you really need, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site expands. Hence, you spare funds that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Every hosting account offered by 'Cool Enterprises' comprises an online web site builder and over 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Cool Enterprises' offers shared website hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting services offered 'Cool Enterprises' are very well furnished and are available at an affordable price (beginning from $5.83 for the Tiny package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS may appear tough to manage. That's probably why 'Cool Enterprises' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a normal shared webspace hosting plan via a web page hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a fee-free site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When matched against a shared site hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not include root access (we, at wocaca.org, regard this as a slight disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting Control Panel tool as the shared site hosting packages. This goes to say that a recognizable GUI is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a virtual private web hosting server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the Virtual Private 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 delivered by 'Cool Enterprises' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In wocaca.org's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Cool Enterprises' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' needs, 'Cool Enterprises' supplies a number of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of website. According to 'Cool Enterprises', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from wocaca.org, consider that all dedicated server packages offered by 'Cool Enterprises' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Cool Enterprises' are all unmanaged. We, at wocaca.org, consider this a little disadvantage, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (wocaca.org's) prognosis is that the excellent point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (wocaca.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Cool Enterprises' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
