An assessment of ProCommerce

We, at, have picked 'ProCommerce' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we suppose that this concise assessment of 'ProCommerce' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'ProCommerce' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'ProCommerce' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have observed is the budget prices of the shared web page hosting services delivered by 'ProCommerce'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'ProCommerce' are powered by a custom developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a different set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting providers cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must construct their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a real clustered web space hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the web space hosting price very low (because plenty of users are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still new. Each web hosting plan furnished by 'ProCommerce' boasts an online web site building tool and over forty popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'ProCommerce' supplies shared webspace hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire planet is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting services offered 'ProCommerce' are very well stocked and come at a good price (starting from $3.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual web server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'ProCommerce' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a regular shared web page hosting package through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not offer root-level access (we, at, consider this a slight downside), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This indicates that a known GUI is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, yet demand more power and supplies than a VPS web server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'ProCommerce' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'ProCommerce' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' anticipations, 'ProCommerce' delivers an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of website. In 'ProCommerce's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages offered by 'ProCommerce' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'ProCommerce' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a tiny drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'ProCommerce' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
