An assessment of SIINFA

We, at 4pm.com.mx, have selected 'SIINFA' to be our current domain and hosting provider. Hence we imagine that this succinct review of 'SIINFA' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'SIINFA' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'SIINFA' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at 4pm.com.mx, have seen is the budget prices of the shared site hosting services offered by 'SIINFA'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans delivered by 'SIINFA' are powered by an in-house created, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a different bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting companies cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by an actual clustered site hosting system. With a shared hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (because multiple users are located on the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web page hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web site hosting package that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each web space hosting package furnished by 'SIINFA' ships with an online site builder and more than 40 widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'SIINFA' furnishes shared web page hosting services in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast website hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions provided 'SIINFA' are really well equipped and are available at an attractive price (starting from $6.00 for the Standard package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'SIINFA' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to managing a typical shared webspace hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated packages do not come with full server root access (we, at 4pm.com.mx, consider this a small inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same website hosting CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical environment is available to all customers who are not confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'SIINFA' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Mercury plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to 4pm.com.mx, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'SIINFA' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' needs, 'SIINFA' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of website. In 'SIINFA's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from 4pm.com.mx, believe that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'SIINFA' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'SIINFA' are all unmanaged. We, at 4pm.com.mx, think of this as a minor negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (4pm.com.mx's) prognosis is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (4pm.com.mx's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'SIINFA' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
