A review of Blue Ribbon Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we suppose that this succinct assessment of 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting services provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are driven by a custom created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a separate bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have immense problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting suppliers cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must develop their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered hosting platform. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the price really low (since a lot of clients are located on one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered site hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you economize money that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Every hosting package delivered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' boasts an online website building tool and over forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' delivers shared web site hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are really well stocked and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $4.16 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual server may seem tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a normal shared webspace hosting package via a web page hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When matched against a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer full server root privileges (we, at, regard this as a minor drawback), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This signifies that a familiar graphical interface is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual private hosting server, yet demand more power and system resources than a virtual web hosting server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' can be branded as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Manager plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' provides a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and steady performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Blue Ribbon Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers furnished by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little negative point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
