A review of Waffihosting

We, at, have chosen 'Waffihosting' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we imagine that this short evaluation of 'Waffihosting' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'Waffihosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Waffihosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared web space hosting services provided by 'Waffihosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting plans offered by 'Waffihosting' are driven by a custom developed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an independent group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have huge difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting providers are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the website hosting price really low (since lots of customers use one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web space hosting plan that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your site grows. Thus, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Every web space hosting package offered by 'Waffihosting' contains an online website building tool and over forty popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Waffihosting' delivers shared web hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting service at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Waffihosting' are quite well furnished and come at an attractive price (beginning from £3.38 for the Startup package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a virtual private web server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Waffihosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a normal shared web page hosting account through a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When compared with a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not arrive with full root-level access (we, at, deem this a little downside), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web hosting CP interface as the shared plans. This signifies that a known graphical environment is available to all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a virtual private hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Waffihosting' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from £16.68 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the guys from 'Waffihosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Waffihosting' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'Waffihosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Waffihosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Waffihosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of £26.69 GBP. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Waffihosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from £33.36 for the Atom 2c package.
