An evaluation of CabbageTree Solutions

We, at, have chosen 'CabbageTree Solutions' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Hence we suppose that this short review of 'CabbageTree Solutions' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'CabbageTree Solutions' presently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'CabbageTree Solutions' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared site hosting packages delivered by 'CabbageTree Solutions'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans offered by 'CabbageTree Solutions' are driven by an in-house designed, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an autonomous pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting providers are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to build their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price really low (since lots of users share one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a small web site hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you economize cash that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each and every hosting account offered by 'CabbageTree Solutions' contains an online website builder and more than forty popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'CabbageTree Solutions' furnishes shared site hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, virtually the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts offered 'CabbageTree Solutions' are very well stocked and are available at a budget price (starting from $3.00 for the Best Plan package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'CabbageTree Solutions' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to managing a regular shared web space hosting plan through a CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When matched against a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not include root-level access (we, at, think of this as a small weak point), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same webspace hosting Control Panel tool as the shared site hosting packages. This implies that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the virtual hosting server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'CabbageTree Solutions' can be defined as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'CabbageTree Solutions' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its users' needs, 'CabbageTree Solutions' delivers a collection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers have: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'CabbageTree Solutions', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'CabbageTree Solutions' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server arrives with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'CabbageTree Solutions' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'CabbageTree Solutions' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
