An assessment of hostmm

We, at, have picked 'hostmm' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this short assessment of 'hostmm' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'hostmm' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing almost the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'hostmm' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have spotted is the low prices of the shared website hosting plans supplied by 'hostmm'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages delivered by 'hostmm' are powered by an in-house built, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an independent set of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have immense troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting companies cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (since a lot of clients use the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a powerful website hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a small webspace hosting package that cannot host your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. That way, you economize cash that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Every website hosting plan delivered by 'hostmm' boasts an online website building tool and over 40 popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'hostmm' supplies shared web space hosting services in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, approximately the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'hostmm' are very well stocked and come at a low-cost price (beginning from $3.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS server may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'hostmm' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a standard shared web space hosting package via a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not include full root-level access (we, at, regard this as a small problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the same CP GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This hints that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a virtual private hosting server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private hosting server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'hostmm' can be classified as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Galaxy package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'hostmm' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' anticipations, 'hostmm' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'hostmm', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'hostmm' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server comes with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'hostmm' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'hostmm' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $85.00 for the Atom 3 package.
