A review of TurbHost

We, at, have selected 'TurbHost' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we expect that this brief assessment of 'TurbHost' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'TurbHost' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'TurbHost' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting services furnished by 'TurbHost'. 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 page hosting packages offered by 'TurbHost' are driven by an in-house devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a separate bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have huge problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting companies cannot add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to build their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by an actual cloud web site hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous customers use one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud website hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you spare money that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting plan provided by 'TurbHost' boasts an online site builder and over forty widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'TurbHost' distributes shared site hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, almost the entire Earth is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting services furnished 'TurbHost' are really well stocked and are available at an attractive price (beginning from $3.75 for the Basic package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'TurbHost' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a standard shared web site hosting package through a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer root-level access (we, at, deem this a little defect), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web page hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a private virtual server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'TurbHost' can be branded as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'TurbHost' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' expectations, 'TurbHost' provides a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'TurbHost's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'TurbHost' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'TurbHost' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a minor weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'TurbHost' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Arctic package.
