An evaluation of Surewire

We, at, have selected 'Surewire' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. This is why we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'Surewire' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Surewire' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Surewire' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the affordable prices of the shared web hosting plans furnished by 'Surewire'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages supplied by 'Surewire' are driven by an in-house built, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an individual group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have enormous predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting suppliers cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to design their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud web hosting system. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the site hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers are hosted on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web space hosting account that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your online presence grows. In this way, you spare money that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still new. Every site hosting package offered by 'Surewire' includes an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Surewire' distributes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, virtually the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast web space hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Surewire' are quite well stocked and come at a very low price (beginning from $8.75 for the Business plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'Surewire' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared web hosting package through a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting packages. When compared to a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not offer complete root-level access (we, at, think that this is a minor drawback), but the plus is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting packages. This indicates that a well-known graphical interface is available to all users who are not self-confident enough to handle a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a VPS hosting server can deliver. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge web servers as the ones which host the VPS web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Surewire' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'Surewire' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' anticipations, 'Surewire' offers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Surewire', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'Surewire' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server ships with free-of-charge billing software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Surewire' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little weak point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Surewire' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
