A review of NTC Hosting

We, at, have picked 'NTC Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we believe that this succinct assessment of 'NTC Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'NTC Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'NTC Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared web hosting services supplied by 'NTC Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting plans provided by 'NTC Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting companies cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual cloud hosting system. With a shared web site hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the hosting price very low (since multiple clients share the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your site grows. In this way, you economize money that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting package furnished by 'NTC Hosting' contains an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'NTC Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting services in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole World is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'NTC Hosting' are very well appointed and come at an excellent price (starting from $4.95 for the Budget package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'NTC Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a standard shared web hosting plan via a hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not come with server root access (we, at, regard this as a small weak point), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared packages. This goes to say that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual private web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which host the virtual web server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'NTC Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $35.95 for the Pioneer plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'NTC Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' needs, 'NTC Hosting' supplies an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the servers boast: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any type of website. In 'NTC Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every web server provides free-of-cost billing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'NTC Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides various extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'NTC Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Gold 1 plan.
