An assessment of zfdesigns

We, at saintcoffee.co.uk, have chosen 'zfdesigns' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we expect that this concise review of 'zfdesigns' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'zfdesigns' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'zfdesigns' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at saintcoffee.co.uk, have detected is the affordable prices of the shared web hosting accounts offered by 'zfdesigns'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting packages offered by 'zfdesigns' are driven by a custom designed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a different pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have immense predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting firms are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered site hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (because lots of clients are hosted on one and the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered webspace hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small web site hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you spare money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Every web space hosting package supplied by 'zfdesigns' includes an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'zfdesigns' delivers shared web space hosting plans in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and fast web site hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'zfdesigns' are very well equipped and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from £6.69 for the Business plan).

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to saintcoffee.co.uk, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'zfdesigns' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' expectations, 'zfdesigns' delivers a number of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the web servers ship with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable work of any type of site. In 'zfdesigns's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from saintcoffee.co.uk, consider that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'zfdesigns' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server provides free invoicing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'zfdesigns' are all unmanaged. We, at saintcoffee.co.uk, consider this a tiny problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of £28.99 GBP. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (saintcoffee.co.uk's) prediction is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any FTP client futile. Our (saintcoffee.co.uk's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'zfdesigns' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from £131.35 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
