A survey of iApps Guatemala

We, at, have selected 'iApps Guatemala' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we believe that this succinct assessment of 'iApps Guatemala' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'iApps Guatemala' currently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'iApps Guatemala' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have detected is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting plans supplied by 'iApps Guatemala'. 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 webspace hosting packages furnished by 'iApps Guatemala' are powered by an in-house developed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an autonomous group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have huge difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the hosting price very low (since a lot of users use the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny webspace hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your site expands. In this way, you economize money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Each and every web space hosting package delivered by 'iApps Guatemala' comprises an online site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'iApps Guatemala' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, virtually the entire Globe is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'iApps Guatemala' are really well appointed and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $2.75 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS web server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'iApps Guatemala' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a normal shared web site hosting account via a site hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at, think that this is a little disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same hosting Control Panel tool as the shared packages. This goes to say that a user-friendly GUI is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a VPS can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'iApps Guatemala' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'iApps Guatemala' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' anticipations, 'iApps Guatemala' provides an array of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any type of web site. In 'iApps Guatemala's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'iApps Guatemala' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server includes free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'iApps Guatemala' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'iApps Guatemala' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Salamander plan.
