A review of AIDA Host

We, at, have chosen 'AIDA Host' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we consider that this succinct review of 'AIDA Host' is probably going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'AIDA Host' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'AIDA Host' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have noticed is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting services delivered by 'AIDA Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'AIDA Host' are driven by an in-house invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an individual host of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have big predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to construct their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price very low (because numerous clients use one and the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web page hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web hosting plan that cannot host your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still new. Each web site hosting plan furnished by 'AIDA Host' comprises an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'AIDA Host' offers shared website hosting services in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'AIDA Host' are really well furnished and are available at a very modest price (beginning from $4.11 for the Bronze package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may appear hard to handle. That's probably why 'AIDA Host' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared website hosting plan through a web space hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When matched against a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not ship with complete server root access (we, at, deem this a little problem), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This signifies that a familiar graphical environment is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, yet demand more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private web 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 'AIDA Host' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'AIDA Host' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' demands, 'AIDA Host' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any type of website. In 'AIDA Host's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'AIDA Host' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'AIDA Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of website hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'AIDA Host' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Earth plan.
