A review of AmtecHost

We, at, have selected 'AmtecHost' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we anticipate that this brief review of 'AmtecHost' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'AmtecHost' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AmtecHost' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the low prices of the shared web space hosting accounts offered by 'AmtecHost'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans offered by 'AmtecHost' are driven by an in-house designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an individual set of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting suppliers cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to design their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the website hosting price really low (because a lot of users utilize one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web site hosting package that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your site expands. So, you economize money that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each web hosting plan delivered by 'AmtecHost' includes an online website builder and more than forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'AmtecHost' offers shared web space hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting solution at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'AmtecHost' are quite well appointed and are available at a very attractive price (beginning from $3.25 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a virtual server may appear difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'AmtecHost' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a normal shared webspace hosting account through a website hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When matched against a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not ship with complete root access (we, at, think of this as a slight disadvantage), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same CP interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This implies that a well-known GUI is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'AmtecHost' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $16.50 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'AmtecHost' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' needs, 'AmtecHost' delivers an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'AmtecHost's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'AmtecHost' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server comes with free-of-cost billing software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'AmtecHost' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $36.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'AmtecHost' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $66.00 for the Atom 2 plan.
