An assessment of Carmi Media

We, at, have picked 'Carmi Media' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Therefore we anticipate that this brief assessment of 'Carmi Media' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Carmi Media' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Carmi Media' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting services furnished by 'Carmi Media'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the hosting accounts furnished by 'Carmi Media' are driven by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an autonomous stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have immense troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting companies are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud website hosting platform. With a shared website hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (since lots of customers utilize the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. In this way, you economize money that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still new. Every web space hosting package furnished by 'Carmi Media' ships with an online website builder and over 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Carmi Media' supplies shared webspace hosting plans in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, almost the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Carmi Media' are quite well appointed and come at a very modest price (starting from $5.00 for the Economy package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may seem troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why 'Carmi Media' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a conventional shared web site hosting account via a site hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When compared to a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server plans do not include full server root access (we, at, think that this is a small downside), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web hosting CP GUI as the shared web site hosting plans. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical environment is available to all customers who are not confident enough to manage a VPS, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a VPS web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Carmi Media' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Carmi Media' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' expectations, 'Carmi Media' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Carmi Media', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Carmi Media' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every hosting server offers free-of-charge billing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Carmi Media' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of website hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Carmi Media' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
