An assessment of Applied Technologies

We, at, have selected 'Applied Technologies' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we deem that this brief review of 'Applied Technologies' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Applied Technologies' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Applied Technologies' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have noted is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting solutions offered by 'Applied Technologies'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting accounts supplied by 'Applied Technologies' are driven by an in-house designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by an individual host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have big difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based hosting suppliers cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to make their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered web page hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the web hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of customers are hosted on the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web site hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page grows. So, you save capital that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting package furnished by 'Applied Technologies' ships with an online website building tool and over forty popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Applied Technologies' delivers shared website hosting services in a number of different countries around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, virtually the whole planet is covered to provide you and your visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'Applied Technologies' are really well appointed and come at a very low price (starting from $6.25 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Applied Technologies' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to administering a standard shared web hosting account through a hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a fee-free web site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web space hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not offer server root access (we, at, count this as a slight weakness), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same hosting CP GUI as the shared site hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical environment is accessible by all users who are not confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Applied Technologies' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'Applied Technologies' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'Applied Technologies' offers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. According to 'Applied Technologies', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Applied Technologies' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each web server includes free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Applied Technologies' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a tiny negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Applied Technologies' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
