An assessment of Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.

We, at, have picked 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we anticipate that this brief assessment of 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' in brief:

Shared Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have observed is the budget prices of the shared website hosting solutions offered by 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans provided by 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' are driven by an in-house built, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have considerable troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting vendors are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine cloud site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of clients utilize one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered site hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Hence, you economize money that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still novel. Every site hosting account offered by 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' comprises an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' provides shared website hosting solutions in several different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' are very well furnished and come at a very attractive price (beginning from £3.33 for the Cirrus Value Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS hosting server may appear problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a regular shared web page hosting plan via a website hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared package such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not offer full root access (we, at, deem this a tiny disadvantage), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting plans. This means that a recognizable graphical interface is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can bestow on them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' anticipations, 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' offers a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the web servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server offers free-of-charge billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £29.00 GBP. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several website hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Cirrus IT Services UK Ltd.' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from £34.51 for the Atom 2c plan.
