A review of 9 Cube Hosting

We, at, have chosen '9 Cube Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we imagine that this brief assessment of '9 Cube Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that '9 Cube Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from '9 Cube Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have discerned is the low prices of the shared web hosting services delivered by '9 Cube Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by '9 Cube Hosting' are driven by a custom created, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a separate host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web hosting platform. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price very low (since numerous clients are hosted on the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting package that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Hence, you spare capital that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Every webspace hosting plan provided by '9 Cube Hosting' sports an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. '9 Cube Hosting' provides shared hosting packages in several different regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, approximately the entire World is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast web hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans provided '9 Cube Hosting' are very well furnished and come at a very affordable price (beginning from $2.63 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why '9 Cube Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a regular shared web hosting account through a site hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting account such as a free website builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When compared to a shared webspace hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not include full root privileges (we, at, regard this as a tiny downside), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting CP tool as the shared hosting plans. This hints that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS, but at the same time need more power and resources than a VPS web server can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '9 Cube Hosting' can be categorized as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from '9 Cube Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' anticipations, '9 Cube Hosting' offers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the web hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of site. In '9 Cube Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by '9 Cube Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server comes with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by '9 Cube Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a little negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade offers various supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several web space hosting CP (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 offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '9 Cube Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
