A survey of GS Studios

We, at aawk.co.uk, have picked 'GS Studios' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we imagine that this brief review of 'GS Studios' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'GS Studios' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'GS Studios' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at aawk.co.uk, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared web space hosting packages furnished by 'GS Studios'. 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 site hosting packages delivered by 'GS Studios' are driven by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have immense problems with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting vendors are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered web page hosting system. With a shared web page hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the web space hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web site hosting package that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still brand new. Every website hosting plan furnished by 'GS Studios' ships with an online website builder and over forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'GS Studios' distributes shared web site hosting services in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting service at a desired location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions provided 'GS Studios' are really well equipped and come at an excellent price (starting from £11.58 for the Business package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'GS Studios' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a typical shared hosting plan via a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared account such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not include full root-level access (we, at aawk.co.uk, deem this a tiny disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting packages. This suggests that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all users who are not confident enough to administer a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual hosting server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'GS Studios' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to aawk.co.uk, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'GS Studios' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' anticipations, 'GS Studios' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'GS Studios's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from aawk.co.uk, believe that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'GS Studios' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server arrives with free billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers provided by 'GS Studios' are all unmanaged. We, at aawk.co.uk, consider this a little weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of £26.16 GBP. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (aawk.co.uk's) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (aawk.co.uk's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'GS Studios' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from £58.88 for the Atom 1 package.
