An assessment of JDC Hosting

We, at, have picked 'JDC Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. This is why we anticipate that this short evaluation of 'JDC Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, since the mere fact is that 'JDC Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'JDC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared site hosting plans furnished by 'JDC 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 webspace hosting plans provided by 'JDC Hosting' are powered by an in-house invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an independent host of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting distributors are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to set up their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared site hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the price very low (because a lot of clients share one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic website hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your site expands. Hence, you economize money that you can spend on promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each web hosting plan supplied by 'JDC Hosting' contains an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'JDC Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, almost the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'JDC Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at a very low price (starting from £2.44 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may seem problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'JDC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a standard shared webspace hosting package through a web page hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free web site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server package is many times bigger than that of a shared plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting accounts. When compared to a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not come with full root access (we, at, count this as a minor disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same CP user interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This means that a familiar GUI is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and supplies than a VPS server can provide them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'JDC Hosting' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'JDC Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' needs, 'JDC Hosting' delivers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of website. In 'JDC Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server plans offered by 'JDC Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each hosting server comes with free billing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'JDC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £26.62 GBP. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'JDC Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from £168.62 for the Xeon 4 package.
