An assessment of SpacefishX

We, at, have selected 'SpacefishX' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we anticipate that this brief review of 'SpacefishX' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'SpacefishX' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'SpacefishX' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have observed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting plans offered by 'SpacefishX'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans supplied by 'SpacefishX' are powered by an in-house devised, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a separate host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel webspace hosting corporations are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must devise their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared account, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the web site hosting price really low (since many users share one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web page hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end website hosting account that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your online presence expands. So, you save funds that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each web page hosting package offered by 'SpacefishX' offers an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'SpacefishX' furnishes shared hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole World is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web site hosting solution at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'SpacefishX' are quite well appointed and come at a good price (beginning from £3.75 for the Host 1 Domain package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'SpacefishX' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared web page hosting account via a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, 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 account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When matched against a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at, consider this a slight defect), but the advantage is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting CP tool as the shared webspace hosting packages. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS web server, yet demand more power and system resources than a virtual web server can supply them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'SpacefishX' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from £17.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'SpacefishX' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' needs, 'SpacefishX' supplies an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. According to 'SpacefishX', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'SpacefishX' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server offers free invoice transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'SpacefishX' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of £28.74 GBP. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'SpacefishX' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from £71.86 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
