An evaluation of Host MM

We, at, have selected 'Host MM' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. This is why we suppose that this concise evaluation of 'Host MM' is probably going to be very useful for other people from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'Host MM' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Host MM' in short:

Shared Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web page hosting packages offered by 'Host MM'. 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 website hosting plans delivered by 'Host MM' are driven by a custom built, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting companies are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to set up their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud hosting platform. With a shared plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price really low (since numerous users are located on one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud website hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, escaping a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web space hosting package that cannot accommodate your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence expands. That way, you save capital that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still new. Each webspace hosting plan furnished by 'Host MM' sports an online website building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Host MM' distributes shared web space hosting services in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting solution at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Host MM' are quite well appointed and come at a low-cost price (starting from $3.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Host MM' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a regular shared webspace hosting account via a web space hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a fee-free web site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting plans. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not ship with full root privileges (we, at, regard this as a little defect), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared website hosting packages. This signifies that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a virtual private hosting server can confer to them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-end servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Host MM' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Galaxy plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Host MM' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'Host MM' provides a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'Host MM's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Host MM' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server comes with free billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Host MM' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of website hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Host MM' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
