An evaluation of Blue Ribbon Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we presume that this concise assessment of 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared web hosting packages provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans furnished by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are powered by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a different group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting suppliers cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (since multiple customers utilize the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web site hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your web site grows. Thus, you save capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each website hosting account provided by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' arrives with an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting service at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are really well equipped and are available at a low-cost price (beginning from $4.16 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no experience, a VPS server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared web space hosting package via a site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting plans. When compared to a shared web space hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer complete root access (we, at, deem this a slight downside), but the good point is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting packages. This hints that a recognizable graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a private virtual hosting server, yet require more power and reserves than a private virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Manager package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' needs, 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' delivers an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the web servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of website. According to 'Blue Ribbon Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes various supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
