An assessment of khmer Linux

We, at localgreenstore.com, have selected 'khmer Linux' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we anticipate that this concise evaluation of 'khmer Linux' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'khmer Linux' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'khmer Linux' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at localgreenstore.com, have perceived is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting solutions furnished by 'khmer Linux'. 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 site hosting accounts offered by 'khmer Linux' are driven by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have mammoth problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting corporations are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered hosting platform. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (because numerous customers use one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web page hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny site hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The ability 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 expands. Thus, you spare funds that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Every website hosting plan offered by 'khmer Linux' comes with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'khmer Linux' provides shared web space hosting services in several different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages delivered 'khmer Linux' are really well equipped and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from $5.94 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'khmer Linux' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a conventional shared web site hosting package via a website hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared account such as a free site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting plans. When matched against a shared web site hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not arrive with root-level access (we, at localgreenstore.com, deem this a slight problem), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web hosting CP tool as the shared website hosting packages. This hints that a well-known GUI is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual web server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a VPS web hosting server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server web hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'khmer Linux' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In localgreenstore.com's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'khmer Linux' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' demands, 'khmer Linux' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the web servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'khmer Linux's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from localgreenstore.com, believe that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'khmer Linux' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-charge billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'khmer Linux' are all unmanaged. We, at localgreenstore.com, deem this a minor downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (localgreenstore.com's) prognosis is that the amazing point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our (localgreenstore.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'khmer Linux' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
