A survey of Cunningham Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Cunningham Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this succinct evaluation of 'Cunningham Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'Cunningham Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering nearly the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Cunningham Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have noted is the low-cost prices of the shared webspace hosting services provided by 'Cunningham Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans supplied by 'Cunningham Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have immense predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting suppliers are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered web hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the webspace hosting price really low (since lots of users share one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web space hosting plan that cannot shelter your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web site expands. In this way, you save money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Each hosting package provided by 'Cunningham Hosting' contains an online website builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Cunningham Hosting' offers shared web page hosting packages in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, practically the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast web hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting packages provided 'Cunningham Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at an attractive price (beginning from $3.00 for the Bronze plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual server may appear difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Cunningham Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a typical shared web page hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not offer root access (we, at, think of this as a small problem), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same hosting CP interface as the shared web space hosting plans. This goes to say that a familiar GUI is offered to all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS server, but at the same time need more power and features than a private virtual hosting server can supply them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which host the VPS server web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Cunningham Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Cunningham Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' needs, 'Cunningham Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of web site. In 'Cunningham Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Cunningham Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every server includes free invoicing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Cunningham Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will possibly render the use of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Cunningham Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
