A survey of GrandGraphics

We, at, have picked 'GrandGraphics' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we suppose that this short review of 'GrandGraphics' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'GrandGraphics' currently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'GrandGraphics' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have seen is the budget prices of the shared hosting solutions furnished by 'GrandGraphics'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages supplied by 'GrandGraphics' are driven by an in-house designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an independent set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting firms cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared website hosting package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the price very low (because plenty of customers share the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you economize cash that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Each site hosting account provided by 'GrandGraphics' ships with an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'GrandGraphics' distributes shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, almost the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting packages offered 'GrandGraphics' are really well furnished and come at a very cheap price (starting from $4.42 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS hosting server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'GrandGraphics' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a normal shared package through a web space hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a free website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not offer complete server root access (we, at, count this as a tiny drawback), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting plans. This implies that a well-known GUI is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS, but at the same time require more power and features than a private virtual web hosting server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'GrandGraphics' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'GrandGraphics' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' anticipations, 'GrandGraphics' offers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the web servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of site. In 'GrandGraphics's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'GrandGraphics' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-cost invoicing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers supplied by 'GrandGraphics' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'GrandGraphics' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
