A survey of Business In The Black

We, at, have selected 'Business In The Black' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we expect that this short evaluation of 'Business In The Black' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Business In The Black' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Business In The Black' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have seen is the modest prices of the shared web hosting services provided by 'Business In The Black'. 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 hosting packages supplied by 'Business In The Black' are powered by an in-house developed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have enormous troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting corporations cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to set up their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web site hosting system. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the web space hosting price very low (because multiple customers are located on one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web space hosting account that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. Thus, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each web page hosting package delivered by 'Business In The Black' arrives with an online web site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Business In The Black' furnishes shared web site hosting plans in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole World is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable web space hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting services supplied 'Business In The Black' are quite well appointed and come at a very attractive price (starting from $7.42 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual private hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Business In The Black' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a conventional shared hosting package through a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-cost site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When matched against a shared hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not come with server root access (we, at, think of this as a minor problem), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical user interface is offered to all users who are not confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a VPS web server can give them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Business In The Black' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Business In The Black' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' needs, 'Business In The Black' offers an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable work of any type of web site. In 'Business In The Black's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Business In The Black' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free invoicing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Business In The Black' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Business In The Black' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
