An evaluation of Armando Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Armando Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this short assessment of 'Armando Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Armando Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Armando Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have perceived is the low-cost prices of the shared web space hosting services furnished by 'Armando Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting plans offered by 'Armando Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an independent stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered web hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of users are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really require, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web site hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you save cash that you can spend on promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each hosting package delivered by 'Armando Hosting' boasts an online website builder and more than 40 popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Armando Hosting' offers shared web space hosting accounts in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Armando Hosting' are very well stocked and come at an affordable price (beginning from €2.55 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'Armando Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a conventional shared site hosting plan via a CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a fee-free website builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not include complete server root access (we, at, count this as a small weak point), but the good point is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting Control Panel interface as the shared hosting packages. This signifies that a familiar graphical interface is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual web server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a VPS can furnish them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Armando Hosting' can be labeled as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Armando Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' expectations, 'Armando Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of website. In 'Armando Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Armando Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server comes with free invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'Armando Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of €30.57 EUR. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Armando Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from €63.37 for the Atom 1 package.
