A review of ND Technology

We, at saini.tech, have chosen 'ND Technology' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we think that this concise review of 'ND Technology' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'ND Technology' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'ND Technology' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at saini.tech, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting services delivered by 'ND Technology'. 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 hosting packages furnished by 'ND Technology' are powered by an in-house built, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a different set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based hosting companies cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to make their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered hosting solution. With a shared plan, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the web site hosting price very low (since plenty of clients are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud site hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web page hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your site grows. So, you save capital that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each web hosting account provided by 'ND Technology' comprises an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'ND Technology' offers shared web site hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, almost the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'ND Technology' are very well appointed and come at a very modest price (beginning from $5.00 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS may seem problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'ND Technology' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared hosting plan through a web page hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared packages. When juxtaposed to a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include complete server root access (we, at saini.tech, count this as a slight inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same web site hosting CP interface as the shared accounts. This means that a recognizable graphical interface is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual web server, but at the same time need more power and reserves than a virtual web server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class servers as the ones which host the VPS server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'ND Technology' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Base plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In saini.tech's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'ND Technology' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' needs, 'ND Technology' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the web servers include: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of web site. According to 'ND Technology', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from saini.tech, think that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'ND Technology' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server offers free invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'ND Technology' are all unmanaged. We, at saini.tech, regard this as a slight negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $34.99 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (saini.tech's) prognosis is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP client futile. Our (saini.tech's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'ND Technology' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
