A survey of marcos

We, at grupocontreras.com, have picked 'marcos' to be our current domain and hosting provider. This is why we presume that this brief evaluation of 'marcos' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'marcos' presently provides domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering practically the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'marcos' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at grupocontreras.com, have noted is the budget prices of the shared web site hosting plans offered by 'marcos'. 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 site hosting plans offered by 'marcos' are powered by a custom designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a different pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have great predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting providers are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud site hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the web space hosting price very low (since a lot of users use the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really require, escaping a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end website hosting package that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your online presence expands. So, you spare funds that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still novel. Each and every web page hosting package offered by 'marcos' sports an online web site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'marcos' distributes shared web site hosting services in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, virtually the entire planet is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting packages supplied 'marcos' are really well appointed and are available at a budget price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter plan).

Dedicated Servers

According to grupocontreras.com, large sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful site hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'marcos' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'marcos' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of web site. In 'marcos's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from grupocontreras.com, think that all dedicated server plans provided by 'marcos' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server offers free billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'marcos' are all unmanaged. We, at grupocontreras.com, consider this a little minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (grupocontreras.com's) prediction is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (grupocontreras.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'marcos' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c package.
