A survey of Xtreme Impulse

We, at isokk.com, have selected 'Xtreme Impulse' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we consider that this concise evaluation of 'Xtreme Impulse' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Xtreme Impulse' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Xtreme Impulse' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at isokk.com, have noted is the cheap prices of the shared web site hosting services delivered by 'Xtreme Impulse'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages delivered by 'Xtreme Impulse' are powered by an in-house invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a different group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have colossal complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting providers are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to devise their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic cloud site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers utilize one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic website hosting account that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site expands. In this way, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each and every web page hosting plan supplied by 'Xtreme Impulse' includes an online website builder and over forty widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Xtreme Impulse' furnishes shared webspace hosting solutions in several different countries across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting service at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Xtreme Impulse' are really well appointed and are available at an affordable price (starting from $3.42 for the Xential plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Xtreme Impulse' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main American data center in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a normal shared web site hosting account through a hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a fee-free site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not offer full root-level access (we, at isokk.com, think that this is a small drawback), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same site hosting CP user interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This means that a familiar GUI is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to administer a virtual server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a Virtual Private Server can bestow on them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Xtreme Impulse' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In isokk.com's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Xtreme Impulse' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'Xtreme Impulse' provides an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of web site. According to 'Xtreme Impulse', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from isokk.com, believe that all dedicated server packages offered by 'Xtreme Impulse' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Xtreme Impulse' are all unmanaged. We, at isokk.com, regard this as a minor inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (isokk.com's) prediction is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (isokk.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Xtreme Impulse' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
