A survey of Duo Servers

We, at, have picked 'Duo Servers' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we deem that this brief evaluation of 'Duo Servers' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Duo Servers' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Duo Servers' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting packages furnished by 'Duo Servers'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans furnished by 'Duo Servers' are driven by an in-house devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a different stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud site hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the price really low (because a lot of customers are hosted on one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web page hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced web page hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web site hosting package that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you spare funds that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting plan provided by 'Duo Servers' sports an online website builder and over forty popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Duo Servers' delivers shared web space hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Duo Servers' are very well furnished and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $5.24 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a VPS web server may seem complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'Duo Servers' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared web page hosting package via a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting plan such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not include complete root-level access (we, at, deem this a minor downside), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This means that a well-known GUI is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a private virtual web server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-class servers as the ones which host the virtual server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Duo Servers' can be classified as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Duo Servers' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' needs, 'Duo Servers' offers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any type of website. In 'Duo Servers's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Duo Servers' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server arrives with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Duo Servers' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a little disadvantage, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $35.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers various supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Duo Servers' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $95.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
