An evaluation of kap2

We, at jackduy.com, have chosen 'kap2' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'kap2' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'kap2' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'kap2' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at jackduy.com, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting accounts provided by 'kap2'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts furnished by 'kap2' are driven by an in-house devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have mammoth complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting firms are not able to include 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 system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud website hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since many clients use one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web space hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a basic web hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. In this way, you spare cash that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting package provided by 'kap2' ships with an online site builder and more than forty popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'kap2' supplies shared web site hosting services in a number of different countries around 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. That way, nearly the whole planet is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'kap2' are quite well stocked and come at a budget price (beginning from $4.88 for the Light package).

Dedicated Servers

According to jackduy.com, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'kap2' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'kap2' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'kap2's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from jackduy.com, think that all dedicated server specs provided by 'kap2' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server offers free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'kap2' are all unmanaged. We, at jackduy.com, regard this as a small weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (jackduy.com's) prognosis is that the excellent point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (jackduy.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'kap2' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $36.00 for the Atom 2c package.
