An evaluation of Galloway Web Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Galloway Web Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we expect that this short assessment of 'Galloway Web Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Galloway Web Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Galloway Web Hosting' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting services offered by 'Galloway Web Hosting'. 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 page hosting packages offered by 'Galloway Web Hosting' are powered by an in-house designed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an autonomous pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have great troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based site hosting companies cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud website hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (because multiple clients are hosted on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered site hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. So, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each web site hosting package supplied by 'Galloway Web Hosting' offers an online site builder and more than forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Galloway Web Hosting' distributes shared web space hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, approximately the entire World is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Galloway Web Hosting' are very well appointed and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from £3.27 for the Beginners Bargain package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Galloway Web Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to managing a normal shared web hosting plan via a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared account such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, deem this a slight problem), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web page hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web hosting packages. This signifies that a known graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual private hosting server, yet are in need of more power and features than a virtual private web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Galloway Web Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from £17.08 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers require a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'Galloway Web Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'Galloway Web Hosting' provides a selection of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'Galloway Web Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Galloway Web Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server provides free-of-charge billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Galloway Web Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of £31.14 GBP. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of website hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Galloway Web Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from £84.77 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
