An evaluation of Alian Software

We, at, have selected 'Alian Software' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we imagine that this short assessment of 'Alian Software' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Alian Software' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Alian Software' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have detected is the low-cost prices of the shared hosting accounts furnished by 'Alian Software'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans supplied by 'Alian Software' are driven by an in-house developed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have immense difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the site hosting price very low (since many clients are located on one and the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a basic site hosting account that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you economize money that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each site hosting package furnished by 'Alian Software' contains an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Alian Software' provides shared hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting solution at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting services provided 'Alian Software' are very well stocked and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $3.58 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS hosting server may seem tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Alian Software' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a typical shared webspace hosting account through a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting packages. When matched against a shared hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not arrive with full server root privileges (we, at, regard this as a small minus), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same hosting CP tool as the shared site hosting packages. This implies that a recognizable graphical interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, yet need more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Alian Software' can be classified as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'Alian Software' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' needs, 'Alian Software' supplies a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Alian Software', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Alian Software' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-charge billing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Alian Software' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of webspace hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Alian Software' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
