A survey of Alian Software

We, at, have picked 'Alian Software' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. Hence we presume that this short review of 'Alian Software' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Alian Software' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Alian Software' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting solutions provided by 'Alian Software'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans supplied by 'Alian Software' are driven by an in-house invented, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an autonomous host of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have huge complications with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and handle 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 premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered web page hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (since numerous clients are hosted on one and the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web site hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small web hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you economize capital that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each web site hosting package furnished by 'Alian Software' ships with an online site builder and over 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Alian Software' delivers shared site hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, practically the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Alian Software' are quite well furnished and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $3.33 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS may appear difficult to manage. That's probably why 'Alian Software' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a regular shared web page hosting package via a web page hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When compared with a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not arrive with root privileges (we, at, think that this is a tiny defect), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same web hosting CP GUI as the shared website hosting plans. This indicates that a known graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a private virtual web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Alian Software' can be dubbed as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Alian Software' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' needs, 'Alian Software' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of website. According to 'Alian Software', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Alian Software' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server offers free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Alian Software' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the great point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Alian Software' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
