A review of Marketing Pros

We, at northstarrrealty.com, have picked 'Marketing Pros' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we presume that this brief assessment of 'Marketing Pros' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Marketing Pros' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Marketing Pros' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at northstarrrealty.com, have seen is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting services offered by 'Marketing Pros'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting plans supplied by 'Marketing Pros' are powered by an in-house developed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have great troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting vendors cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must concoct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud web hosting platform. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the hosting price very low (since lots of clients are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered site hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you economize capital that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Every site hosting package supplied by 'Marketing Pros' ships with an online website builder and over 40 widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Marketing Pros' supplies shared webspace hosting solutions in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, nearly the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting solution at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Marketing Pros' are very well furnished and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $3.75 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'Marketing Pros' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to managing a standard shared web page hosting plan through a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not arrive with server root access (we, at northstarrrealty.com, think of this as a slight disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same website hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This implies that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual web server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful high-end servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Marketing Pros' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In northstarrrealty.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Marketing Pros' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Marketing Pros' offers a selection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of website. According to 'Marketing Pros', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from northstarrrealty.com, believe that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Marketing Pros' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every hosting server offers free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Marketing Pros' are all unmanaged. We, at northstarrrealty.com, consider this a minor minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $36.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (northstarrrealty.com's) forecast is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any FTP client futile. Our (northstarrrealty.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Marketing Pros' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
