A survey of Flowers Technologies

We, at wassarians.com, have selected 'Flowers Technologies' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. This is why we imagine that this concise assessment of 'Flowers Technologies' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'Flowers Technologies' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Flowers Technologies' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at wassarians.com, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'Flowers Technologies'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts offered by 'Flowers Technologies' are driven by a custom devised, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an independent pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by a real cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the webspace hosting price very low (because a lot of users are located on the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a small web hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your site expands. That way, you economize money that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting package furnished by 'Flowers Technologies' arrives with an online website builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Flowers Technologies' delivers shared web site hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the whole Earth is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast web hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Flowers Technologies' are quite well appointed and come at a very low price (starting from $3.82 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Flowers Technologies' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared web space hosting package through a webspace hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared packages. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated packages do not arrive with full root access (we, at wassarians.com, regard this as a slight weakness), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same site hosting CP GUI as the shared site hosting plans. This hints that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Flowers Technologies' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $17.49 for the Flowers Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to wassarians.com, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Flowers Technologies' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' anticipations, 'Flowers Technologies' supplies an assortment of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of site. According to 'Flowers Technologies', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from wassarians.com, consider that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Flowers Technologies' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each web server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Flowers Technologies' are all unmanaged. We, at wassarians.com, regard this as a tiny weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (wassarians.com's) prediction is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our (wassarians.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Flowers Technologies' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v3 package.
