An evaluation of Unpicked

We, at federationnet.com, have picked 'Unpicked' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we presume that this short evaluation of 'Unpicked' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Unpicked' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Unpicked' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at federationnet.com, have observed is the low-cost prices of the shared hosting packages delivered by 'Unpicked'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans offered by 'Unpicked' are driven by a custom devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a different set of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting distributors are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design 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 actual clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the web site hosting price very low (because lots of users share one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered site hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you economize capital that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still new. Every web site hosting account offered by 'Unpicked' comes with an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Unpicked' distributes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, virtually the whole Globe is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans furnished 'Unpicked' are quite well furnished and come at an excellent price (starting from $5.12 for the Business package).

Dedicated Servers

In federationnet.com's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'Unpicked' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' requirements, 'Unpicked' offers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of website. In 'Unpicked's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from federationnet.com, think that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Unpicked' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Unpicked' are all unmanaged. We, at federationnet.com, consider this a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (federationnet.com's) forecast is that the outstanding point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our (federationnet.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Unpicked' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
