An evaluation of 7Global Connect

We, at, have selected '7Global Connect' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we expect that this concise evaluation of '7Global Connect' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, because the mere fact is that '7Global Connect' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '7Global Connect' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have perceived is the low prices of the shared site hosting plans provided by '7Global Connect'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts delivered by '7Global Connect' are driven by an in-house developed, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an independent set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have mammoth problems with, since cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting vendors are not able to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud site hosting system. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the site hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers share one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a high-end web hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small website hosting account that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. So, you save funds that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each and every hosting package offered by '7Global Connect' sports an online website builder and over forty popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. '7Global Connect' distributes shared website hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans provided '7Global Connect' are really well appointed and are available at a very low price (beginning from $4.13 for the Economic plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a VPS server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why '7Global Connect' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared webspace hosting package via a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a fee-free website builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not come with full root access (we, at, deem this a little problem), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web page hosting packages. This indicates that a known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, yet demand more power and features than a Virtual Private Server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '7Global Connect' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the folks from '7Global Connect' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' needs, '7Global Connect' delivers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of website. In '7Global Connect's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs delivered by '7Global Connect' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each web server ships with free billing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by '7Global Connect' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $36.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of website hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by '7Global Connect' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
