A survey of Benznet

We, at, have picked 'Benznet' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. This is why we presume that this concise assessment of 'Benznet' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Benznet' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Benznet' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have noted is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting solutions delivered by 'Benznet'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans offered by 'Benznet' are powered by a custom created, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a different pack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting corporations cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered hosting solution. With a shared hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus keeping the price very low (since a lot of customers utilize the same server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful website hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small web site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your site grows. So, you economize cash that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Every web space hosting plan offered by 'Benznet' offers an online web site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Benznet' supplies shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting service at a preferred place. On the whole, the shared hosting services provided 'Benznet' are very well furnished and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from $6.25 for the Independent package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may appear complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Benznet' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to managing a normal shared hosting plan via a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting plan such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared with a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not arrive with root access (we, at, count this as a small drawback), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared site hosting accounts. This indicates that a user-friendly GUI is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual web server, but at the same time need more power and reserves than a virtual server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Benznet' can be labeled as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $24.99 for the Benz Semi Base plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Benznet' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' requirements, 'Benznet' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the web servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of website. According to 'Benznet', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Benznet' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server comes with free invoicing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Benznet' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Benznet' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
