A review of GO IKV

We, at ikvlive.com, have selected 'GO IKV' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we expect that this brief review of 'GO IKV' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'GO IKV' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing approximately the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'GO IKV' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at ikvlive.com, have detected is the budget prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts provided by 'GO IKV'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting plans supplied by 'GO IKV' are driven by an in-house devised, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an individual group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have great complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting suppliers cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to create their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered site hosting platform. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web space hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of clients utilize one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. Hence, you spare money that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each site hosting package furnished by 'GO IKV' sports an online web site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'GO IKV' offers shared web site hosting services in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, practically the entire World is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts offered 'GO IKV' are very well appointed and are available at a very modest price (starting from $5.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual web server may appear problematic to manage. That's probably why 'GO IKV' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a conventional shared web page hosting package via a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When compared to a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated packages do not offer full server root privileges (we, at ikvlive.com, count this as a minor minus), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same web page hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This signifies that a known graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a virtual private web hosting server can give them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'GO IKV' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi-dedicated L plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to ikvlive.com, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'GO IKV' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' requirements, 'GO IKV' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady work of any type of web site. In 'GO IKV's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from ikvlive.com, deem that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'GO IKV' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server provides free billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'GO IKV' are all unmanaged. We, at ikvlive.com, think of this as a little inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of webspace hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ikvlive.com's) prediction is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our (ikvlive.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'GO IKV' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Mont Blanc package.
