An evaluation of Waffihosting

We, at, have picked 'Waffihosting' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this short review of 'Waffihosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Waffihosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Waffihosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared website hosting plans offered by 'Waffihosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages provided by 'Waffihosting' are powered by an in-house devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an autonomous pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting firms cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine clustered website hosting platform. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (because plenty of clients share one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small web page hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web page expands. That way, you save funds that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Every webspace hosting account furnished by 'Waffihosting' ships with an online site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Waffihosting' furnishes shared web site hosting plans in several different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting solution at a convenient place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Waffihosting' are very well appointed and come at a very low price (beginning from £3.38 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Waffihosting' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to handling a standard shared web site hosting account through a hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free-of-charge site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting accounts. When compared to a shared plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not ship with complete server root access (we, at, regard this as a tiny weakness), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual web hosting server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful high-end servers as the ones which host the VPS accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Waffihosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.68 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Waffihosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' requirements, 'Waffihosting' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specs the servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'Waffihosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'Waffihosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Waffihosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a slight defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £26.69 GBP. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Waffihosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from £33.36 for the Atom 2c package.
