An assessment of cotaman

We, at mexico-tenoch.com, have picked 'cotaman' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. Therefore we consider that this succinct evaluation of 'cotaman' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'cotaman' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'cotaman' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The first thing we, at mexico-tenoch.com, have noticed is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting plans offered by 'cotaman'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages delivered by 'cotaman' are powered by an in-house devised, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have considerable predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting firms are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by an actual clustered hosting system. With a shared site hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the site hosting price amazingly low (since lots of clients are hosted on the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your website expands. Thus, you economize money that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still novel. Each and every site hosting account delivered by 'cotaman' boasts an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'cotaman' furnishes shared web hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting plans provided 'cotaman' are quite well furnished and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $3.33 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'cotaman' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared web hosting account via a web page hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not include root access (we, at mexico-tenoch.com, count this as a tiny disadvantage), but the good point is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared web site hosting packages. This means that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a private virtual web server can supply them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'cotaman' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In mexico-tenoch.com's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'cotaman' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' requirements, 'cotaman' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any type of site. According to 'cotaman', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from mexico-tenoch.com, believe that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'cotaman' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web server includes free invoicing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'cotaman' are all unmanaged. We, at mexico-tenoch.com, count this as a tiny negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (mexico-tenoch.com's) prediction is that the magnificent point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (mexico-tenoch.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'cotaman' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
