A survey of geniaIT

We, at acervo.mx, have selected 'geniaIT' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we presume that this concise review of 'geniaIT' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'geniaIT' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'geniaIT' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at acervo.mx, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting solutions supplied by 'geniaIT'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'geniaIT' are powered by a custom created, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an independent stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have big problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting vendors cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud website hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the price very low (because numerous customers are located on one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web space hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Every web space hosting package supplied by 'geniaIT' includes an online site building tool and over forty widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'geniaIT' distributes shared website hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, practically the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web site hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'geniaIT' are really well equipped and come at a very affordable price (starting from $3.15 for the Tiny plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual web server may seem difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'geniaIT' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a standard shared web site hosting account through a web space hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting account such as a fee-free web site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web site hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not offer root-level access (we, at acervo.mx, think of this as a small downside), but the plus is that they are administered through the same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared accounts. This goes to say that a well-known graphical environment is offered to all users who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a virtual web server can deliver. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'geniaIT' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $24.75 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In acervo.mx's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'geniaIT' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' expectations, 'geniaIT' provides a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of website. According to 'geniaIT', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from acervo.mx, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'geniaIT' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'geniaIT' are all unmanaged. We, at acervo.mx, think of this as a slight problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.40 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (acervo.mx's) prediction is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (acervo.mx's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'geniaIT' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $45.00 for the Salamander plan.
