An evaluation of webflask

We, at, have selected 'webflask' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we deem that this brief assessment of 'webflask' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'webflask' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'webflask' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have noted is the budget prices of the shared site hosting solutions furnished by 'webflask'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting plans provided by 'webflask' are driven by a custom invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an autonomous set of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have considerable complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting vendors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web page hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the site hosting price very low (since a lot of users use one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you save money that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each website hosting account delivered by 'webflask' boasts an online website builder and more than forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'webflask' supplies shared web page hosting packages in several different regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, approximately the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting solution at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'webflask' are quite well furnished and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $3.00 for the Simple plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'webflask' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a normal shared webspace hosting package through a CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared website hosting account such as a free web site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include complete root-level access (we, at, regard this as a small drawback), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared plans. This implies that a known graphical environment is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'webflask' can be categorized as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Galaxy package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'webflask' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' demands, 'webflask' provides an assortment of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers come with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of website. In 'webflask's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'webflask' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each web server ships with free-of-cost billing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'webflask' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a minor weak point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'webflask' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
