A review of Blue Ribbon Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Therefore we consider that this short review of 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have detected is the affordable prices of the shared hosting solutions provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the webspace hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers utilize the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your site expands. Hence, you save cash that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Every web hosting plan offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' comprises an online website builder and more than forty popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' supplies shared web site hosting plans in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data centers - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, approximately the whole World is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at a very low price (starting from $4.16 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to manage. That's probably why 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a normal shared site hosting account via a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not offer root privileges (we, at, regard this as a tiny negative point), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared packages. This signifies that a well-known graphical interface is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can supply them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which host the virtual server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Manager plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' expectations, 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' offers a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the servers include: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and steady performance of any sort of site. According to 'Blue Ribbon Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server offers free-of-charge billing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides various extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
