An assessment of Duo Servers

We, at, have selected 'Duo Servers' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this concise assessment of 'Duo Servers' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Duo Servers' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Duo Servers' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared web hosting services provided by 'Duo Servers'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts offered by 'Duo Servers' are driven by an in-house built, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a different bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting distributors are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine cloud hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since lots of clients use the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small website hosting account that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you economize funds that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each site hosting package furnished by 'Duo Servers' comes with an online site builder and more than 40 popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Duo Servers' delivers shared web space hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Globe is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'Duo Servers' are really well equipped and are available at a very good price (starting from $3.99 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a VPS server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Duo Servers' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a standard shared web site hosting plan via a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, count this as a minor weak point), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same site hosting CP GUI as the shared web site hosting packages. This signifies that a well-known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual private web server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a VPS server can confer to them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Duo Servers' can be branded as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Duo Servers' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' requirements, 'Duo Servers' supplies an assortment of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the web servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. According to 'Duo Servers', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Duo Servers' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server arrives with free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Duo Servers' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a tiny negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $35.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Duo Servers' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
