A survey of System X Designs

We, at, have chosen 'System X Designs' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this concise review of 'System X Designs' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'System X Designs' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'System X Designs' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting solutions supplied by 'System X Designs'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans offered by 'System X Designs' are driven by a custom created, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a different group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have immense complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web site hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (because many clients share the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site expands. Thus, you economize funds that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting package offered by 'System X Designs' sports an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'System X Designs' delivers shared website hosting packages in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire planet is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'System X Designs' are quite well stocked and come at an affordable price (starting from $5.92 for the Business package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual server may appear hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'System X Designs' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to handling a typical shared account through a website hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When matched against a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not offer full server root privileges (we, at, think of this as a tiny weakness), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same CP tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This implies that a recognizable graphical interface is accessible by all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a VPS, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual web hosting server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'System X Designs' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful website hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'System X Designs' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' demands, 'System X Designs' provides a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'System X Designs's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'System X Designs' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every server comes with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'System X Designs' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade includes several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'System X Designs' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
