An assessment of Smartest Media

We, at, have picked 'Smartest Media' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. This is why we presume that this brief review of 'Smartest Media' is perchance going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, since the mere fact is that 'Smartest Media' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Smartest Media' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting accounts offered by 'Smartest Media'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting plans provided by 'Smartest Media' are driven by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an individual stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting corporations cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must devise their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the webspace hosting price very low (since plenty of customers are hosted on one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small webspace hosting account that cannot host 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 plan and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you spare cash that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Each and every hosting plan delivered by 'Smartest Media' comes with an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Smartest Media' delivers shared web page hosting packages in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans offered 'Smartest Media' are quite well equipped and are available at a very low price (beginning from $2.75 for the Startup package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private web server may seem hard to manage. That's probably why 'Smartest Media' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared site hosting account via a web page hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting package such as a free web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not come with complete root-level access (we, at, consider this a small defect), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This means that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to manage a VPS server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Smartest Media' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Mini plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'Smartest Media' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' needs, 'Smartest Media' supplies a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of web site. According to 'Smartest Media', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Smartest Media' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every server arrives with free invoicing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Smartest Media' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Smartest Media' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
