An evaluation of Montbrun Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Montbrun Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this succinct assessment of 'Montbrun Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Montbrun Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Montbrun Hosting' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting plans supplied by 'Montbrun Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans furnished by 'Montbrun Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous host of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have big difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting corporations are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the site hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of clients use the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small site hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you economize money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting account offered by 'Montbrun Hosting' contains an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Montbrun Hosting' offers shared hosting plans in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a convenient place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'Montbrun Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at a good price (starting from $2.75 for the Beginner plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may seem hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Montbrun Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared package through a website hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated plan is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not ship with complete root access (we, at, regard this as a minor weak point), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same hosting CP user interface as the shared hosting plans. This signifies that a known GUI is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a private virtual server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Montbrun Hosting' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Galaxy plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the guys from 'Montbrun Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' demands, 'Montbrun Hosting' provides an array of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of site. According to 'Montbrun Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Montbrun Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each web server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Montbrun Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a tiny negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Montbrun Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
