A survey of Lime Server

We, at temporarywifirental.com, have chosen 'Lime Server' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this short review of 'Lime Server' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Lime Server' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lime Server' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at temporarywifirental.com, have noted is the budget prices of the shared site hosting accounts delivered by 'Lime Server'. 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 site hosting accounts delivered by 'Lime Server' are powered by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a different host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting firms are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting packages, which are driven by an actual clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price very low (since lots of clients are located on one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a small hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you save capital that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting plan offered by 'Lime Server' offers an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Lime Server' offers shared web page hosting plans in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole World is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Lime Server' are very well stocked and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from £2.99 for the Starter Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lime Server' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared webspace hosting account through a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a fee-free site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server account is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not arrive with full root access (we, at temporarywifirental.com, think that this is a slight weak point), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same webspace hosting CP interface as the shared hosting packages. This signifies that a familiar graphical environment is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual private hosting server, yet demand more power and system resources than a VPS can confer to them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lime Server' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from £14.99 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to temporarywifirental.com, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Lime Server' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' anticipations, 'Lime Server' provides a selection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of website. According to 'Lime Server', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from temporarywifirental.com, think that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Lime Server' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server includes free billing transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Lime Server' are all unmanaged. We, at temporarywifirental.com, count this as a little drawback, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of £28.74 GBP. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (temporarywifirental.com's) forecast is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (temporarywifirental.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lime Server' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from £71.86 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
