A survey of Compuniversal

We, at, have selected 'Compuniversal' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this succinct review of 'Compuniversal' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Compuniversal' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Compuniversal' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have observed is the low prices of the shared site hosting services delivered by 'Compuniversal'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting packages furnished by 'Compuniversal' are powered by a custom designed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an independent group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting corporations cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous users are located on the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small website hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you save money that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Every web hosting plan delivered by 'Compuniversal' ships with an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Compuniversal' delivers shared webspace hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the entire World is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'Compuniversal' are very well furnished and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Compuniversal' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a regular shared site hosting package through a CP tool. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a free web site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not include root access (we, at, think that this is a little defect), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This suggests that a familiar graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Compuniversal' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful website hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Compuniversal' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' anticipations, 'Compuniversal' supplies an array of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of site. According to 'Compuniversal', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Compuniversal' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server arrives with free billing software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Compuniversal' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any FTP client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Compuniversal' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
