A survey of Blue Ribbon Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this short evaluation of 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting solutions delivered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting plans furnished by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a different stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have immense problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting vendors are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must develop their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price really low (since plenty of clients utilize the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic website hosting package that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your online presence expands. Thus, you save capital that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still novel. Every web space hosting package offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' comes with an online web site builder and over 40 popular script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' delivers shared website hosting accounts in several different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole Globe is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are quite well appointed and are available at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $4.41 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a typical shared webspace hosting package via a hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When matched against a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not offer root privileges (we, at, think that this is a little weakness), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting packages. This signifies that a familiar GUI is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a VPS server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a private virtual hosting server can offer. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Manager package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' requirements, 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' supplies a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of site. According to 'Blue Ribbon Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server provides free billing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
