An assessment of AIDA Host

We, at, have picked 'AIDA Host' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Therefore we presume that this short review of 'AIDA Host' is perchance going to be very helpful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'AIDA Host' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared hosting plans provided by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting packages delivered by 'AIDA Host' are driven by a custom developed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have considerable troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting distributors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (since many users utilize one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web space hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for a powerful web page hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end website hosting package that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your website grows. So, you save funds that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each hosting account supplied by 'AIDA Host' arrives with an online website building tool and over 40 popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'AIDA Host' furnishes shared web page hosting plans in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'AIDA Host' are quite well stocked and are available at a very good price (beginning from $4.11 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to handling a normal shared web space hosting package via a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not come with complete root access (we, at, count this as a tiny minus), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same web space hosting CP GUI as the shared plans. This indicates that a known GUI is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a private virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'AIDA Host' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'AIDA Host' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, 'AIDA Host' offers a collection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of site. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'AIDA Host' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server provides free-of-cost billing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'AIDA Host' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth plan.
