An assessment of Gymjims - Jargon-free IT

We, at r4ds.co.uk, have chosen 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we presume that this brief assessment of 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at r4ds.co.uk, have perceived is the low-cost prices of the shared web site hosting accounts supplied by 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT'. 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 space hosting accounts furnished by 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' are powered by a custom developed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a separate set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have colossal problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the price amazingly low (because plenty of customers are located on the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small web site hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site expands. So, you save cash that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each web site hosting plan offered by 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' arrives with an online website builder and over forty popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' furnishes shared site hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, practically the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' are quite well stocked and are available at a low-cost price (starting from £4.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to managing a typical shared web hosting package via a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a fee-free web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not offer complete server root access (we, at r4ds.co.uk, deem this a slight weak point), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same site hosting CP interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This means that a well-known graphical interface is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual web server, yet demand more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can supply them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £16.54 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to r4ds.co.uk, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its users' anticipations, 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the web servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any sort of site. According to 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from r4ds.co.uk, think that all dedicated server solutions provided by 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server includes free billing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' are all unmanaged. We, at r4ds.co.uk, count this as a tiny weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to £28.48 GBP. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (r4ds.co.uk's) prognosis is that the superb point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our (r4ds.co.uk's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Gymjims - Jargon-free IT' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from £33.09 for the Atom 2c package.
