An assessment of The Claypoole Group

We, at, have selected 'The Claypoole Group' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this brief evaluation of 'The Claypoole Group' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'The Claypoole Group' currently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'The Claypoole Group' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the budget prices of the shared web space hosting services offered by 'The Claypoole Group'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting accounts delivered by 'The Claypoole Group' are powered by an in-house invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an individual stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based web page hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting distributors are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to construct their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud web hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous customers are located on one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page expands. That way, you save capital that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting plan supplied by 'The Claypoole Group' contains an online site builder and over forty popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'The Claypoole Group' furnishes shared site hosting solutions in several different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the entire World is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'The Claypoole Group' are quite well stocked and come at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $2.92 for the Starter package).

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'The Claypoole Group' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' requirements, 'The Claypoole Group' offers an assortment of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'The Claypoole Group', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'The Claypoole Group' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server arrives with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'The Claypoole Group' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a little minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the exceptional drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'The Claypoole Group' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c package.
