A survey of Alpha

We, at, have selected 'Alpha' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we believe that this brief assessment of 'Alpha' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Alpha' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing practically the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Alpha' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have noted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web site hosting packages delivered by 'Alpha'. 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 space hosting accounts provided by 'Alpha' are powered by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a different pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have mammoth complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting firms cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to set up their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud web hosting solution. With a shared account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (because multiple users are hosted on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end website hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small webspace hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you economize capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still new. Every website hosting package supplied by 'Alpha' includes an online site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Alpha' supplies shared site hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting solution at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Alpha' are really well furnished and come at an affordable price (beginning from €3.75 for the Starter plan).

Dedicated Servers

According to, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Alpha' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' demands, 'Alpha' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of website. In 'Alpha's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Alpha' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-charge billing transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Alpha' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €29.74 EUR. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Alpha' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from €139.87 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
