An evaluation of Demers Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Demers Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. This is why we anticipate that this concise review of 'Demers Hosting' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Demers Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Demers Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the modest prices of the shared hosting services offered by 'Demers Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans delivered by 'Demers Hosting' are driven by a custom developed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting suppliers cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered web hosting platform. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since lots of users use the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic website hosting account that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you spare capital that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still novel. Every web space hosting plan provided by 'Demers Hosting' comes with an online website building tool and over forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Demers Hosting' supplies shared webspace hosting plans in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your visitors with a stable and dependable hosting solution at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'Demers Hosting' are quite well equipped and come at a very reasonable price (starting from $3.33 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Demers Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a standard shared web hosting package through a web site hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared website hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web application 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 example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When compared to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not come with full root-level access (we, at, consider this a slight drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web hosting CP tool as the shared hosting plans. This signifies that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual server, yet demand more power and features than a VPS web server can bestow on them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Demers Hosting' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $25.00 for the Galaxy plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'Demers Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' needs, 'Demers Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the web servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. According to 'Demers Hosting', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'Demers Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server ships with free-of-charge billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Demers Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Demers Hosting' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
