An assessment of Kapax

We, at asadorgaucho.mx, have selected 'Kapax' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we presume that this short evaluation of 'Kapax' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Kapax' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Kapax' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at asadorgaucho.mx, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared web site hosting packages furnished by 'Kapax'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans delivered by 'Kapax' are driven by a custom created, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have immense predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting corporations are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to design their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud hosting system. With a shared plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (because multiple customers are hosted on the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a basic web page hosting account that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you save cash that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still novel. Each and every website hosting package offered by 'Kapax' comprises an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Kapax' distributes shared web site hosting packages in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, practically the whole World is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'Kapax' are quite well stocked and are available at a very good price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Kapax' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to handling a normal shared webspace hosting account via a website hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not come with full server root access (we, at asadorgaucho.mx, count this as a little disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting plans. This signifies that a familiar graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to manage a VPS web server, yet require more power and system resources than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Kapax' can be branded as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In asadorgaucho.mx's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Kapax' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' expectations, 'Kapax' offers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Kapax', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from asadorgaucho.mx, deem that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'Kapax' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server includes free invoicing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Kapax' are all unmanaged. We, at asadorgaucho.mx, consider this a tiny disadvantage, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (asadorgaucho.mx's) prediction is that the superb drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our (asadorgaucho.mx's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Kapax' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
