An evaluation of Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains

We, at, have selected 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. This is why we suppose that this short evaluation of 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing virtually the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting plans furnished by 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains'. 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 webspace hosting plans delivered by 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' are driven by a custom invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an autonomous host of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have immense difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting firms cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the webspace hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of users are located on the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web space hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web page hosting package that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Every web space hosting package delivered by 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' ships with an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' offers shared site hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable web site hosting solution at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting services delivered 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' are really well furnished and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $2.75 for the Getting Started package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a typical shared web hosting plan through a CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When compared to a shared hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated plans do not offer complete server root access (we, at, count this as a slight weakness), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same website hosting CP tool as the shared hosting plans. This means that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a private virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated Starter package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' requirements, 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' supplies an array of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the web servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any type of website. In 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each server includes free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Westgate WEBS Hosting and Free Domains' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Dedicated Server Xeon 1 plan.
