An assessment of AIDA Host

We, at, have chosen 'AIDA Host' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. This is why we consider that this short review of 'AIDA Host' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting services offered by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans supplied by 'AIDA Host' are powered by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting vendors are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price very low (since plenty of users are located on the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a small site hosting plan that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. So, you save cash that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Every web space hosting package furnished by 'AIDA Host' comes with an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'AIDA Host' distributes shared hosting services in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, almost the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web space hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans offered 'AIDA Host' are quite well furnished and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $4.11 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a normal shared website hosting account through a web site hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared packages. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not come with full root access (we, at, think of this as a tiny problem), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same site hosting CP interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This signifies that a known graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'AIDA Host' can be branded as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'AIDA Host' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' needs, 'AIDA Host' delivers an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'AIDA Host', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server ships with free invoice transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth plan.
