A survey of Intrigue Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Intrigue Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we believe that this short assessment of 'Intrigue Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'Intrigue Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Intrigue Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting packages provided by 'Intrigue Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans offered by 'Intrigue Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have immense predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting corporations are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting packages, which are driven by an actual clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price very low (since multiple customers are located on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web site hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, precluding a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a small site hosting package that cannot handle your website. The ability 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 Internet presence expands. That way, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each webspace hosting package offered by 'Intrigue Hosting' contains an online web site building tool and over forty popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Intrigue Hosting' furnishes shared site hosting solutions in several different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting solution at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Intrigue Hosting' are quite well equipped and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $6.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual web server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why 'Intrigue Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a standard shared hosting package through a CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting plan such as a fee-free site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not offer complete root-level access (we, at, deem this a small defect), but the good point is that they are administered via the same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting packages. This implies that a known graphical user interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual web server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Intrigue Hosting' can be branded as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, big sites 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 folks from 'Intrigue Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' requirements, 'Intrigue Hosting' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of site. In 'Intrigue Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Intrigue Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every server ships with free billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Intrigue Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $34.95 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Intrigue Hosting' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
