An evaluation of Fluint.net

We, at thryv.net, have selected 'Fluint.net' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we imagine that this succinct evaluation of 'Fluint.net' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Fluint.net' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Fluint.net' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at thryv.net, have spotted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web site hosting accounts furnished by 'Fluint.net'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting packages delivered by 'Fluint.net' are powered by a custom created, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have mammoth predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting suppliers are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must construct their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers are hosted on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny site hosting account that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you economize funds that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Every web space hosting account furnished by 'Fluint.net' includes an online website builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Fluint.net' furnishes shared web hosting accounts in several different countries around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, practically the whole World is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Fluint.net' are very well appointed and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $3.95 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Fluint.net' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared hosting account through a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When matched against a shared web page hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not come with full root access (we, at thryv.net, deem this a little disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting plans. This suggests that a user-friendly GUI is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a VPS can confer to them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Fluint.net' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Value Deal plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In thryv.net's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'Fluint.net' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'Fluint.net' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'Fluint.net', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from thryv.net, think that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Fluint.net' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each hosting server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Fluint.net' are all unmanaged. We, at thryv.net, think of this as a small weak point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (thryv.net's) prediction is that the superb point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software useless. Our (thryv.net's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Fluint.net' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $75.00 for the Atom 2 plan.
