An assessment of MTBN.NET

We, at jcmusic.org, have picked 'MTBN.NET' to be our current domain and hosting provider. Hence we consider that this brief evaluation of 'MTBN.NET' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'MTBN.NET' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'MTBN.NET' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at jcmusic.org, have perceived is the reasonable prices of the shared hosting solutions delivered by 'MTBN.NET'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts provided by 'MTBN.NET' are driven by a custom devised, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an independent set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting suppliers cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price really low (since lots of customers use the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you actually require, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web page hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site expands. Hence, you economize capital that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Each and every webspace hosting plan supplied by 'MTBN.NET' offers an online site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'MTBN.NET' offers shared site hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, practically the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast web space hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting services delivered 'MTBN.NET' are quite well equipped and come at a budget price (starting from $3.75 for the Simple package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'MTBN.NET' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a typical shared site hosting plan through a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting account such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When compared with a shared plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not come with full root privileges (we, at jcmusic.org, consider this a little weak point), but the advantage is that they are managed through the very same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting plans. This goes to say that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, yet require more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can confer to them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'MTBN.NET' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Tall package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to jcmusic.org, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the guys from 'MTBN.NET' have come to the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' requirements, 'MTBN.NET' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of site. In 'MTBN.NET's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from jcmusic.org, believe that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'MTBN.NET' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every web server provides free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'MTBN.NET' are all unmanaged. We, at jcmusic.org, consider this a little problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (jcmusic.org's) forecast is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (jcmusic.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'MTBN.NET' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
