An evaluation of T R I N I T Y

We, at sionalodge.org, have picked 'T R I N I T Y' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we anticipate that this concise assessment of 'T R I N I T Y' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'T R I N I T Y' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'T R I N I T Y' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at sionalodge.org, have noticed is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting services supplied by 'T R I N I T Y'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages delivered by 'T R I N I T Y' are powered by an in-house developed, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have enormous problems with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web hosting providers are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must devise their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered website hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of clients are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web space hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small website hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you spare money that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Every web page hosting plan supplied by 'T R I N I T Y' contains an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'T R I N I T Y' provides shared web space hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'T R I N I T Y' are quite well stocked and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $7.50 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'T R I N I T Y' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to administering a typical shared web space hosting plan via a Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not ship with full root-level access (we, at sionalodge.org, count this as a tiny inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting packages. This suggests that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'T R I N I T Y' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In sionalodge.org's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'T R I N I T Y' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' needs, 'T R I N I T Y' provides a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady work of any type of site. In 'T R I N I T Y's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from sionalodge.org, consider that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'T R I N I T Y' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server includes free billing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers supplied by 'T R I N I T Y' are all unmanaged. We, at sionalodge.org, regard this as a small weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sionalodge.org's) forecast is that the exceptional point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our (sionalodge.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'T R I N I T Y' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
