An assessment of Innovator Host

We, at, have picked 'Innovator Host' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Hence we imagine that this concise evaluation of 'Innovator Host' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Innovator Host' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center 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 approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Innovator Host' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have noticed is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting services delivered by 'Innovator Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting packages offered by 'Innovator Host' are driven by an in-house invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a different host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have great complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to devise their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price amazingly low (since multiple clients use one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny website hosting package that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you economize money that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each hosting package provided by 'Innovator Host' offers an online website builder and over forty widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Innovator Host' delivers shared webspace hosting packages in several different regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, approximately the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting solution at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Innovator Host' are quite well furnished and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $6.08 for the Quantum package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS web server may seem hard to manage. That's probably why 'Innovator Host' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a regular shared web page hosting package via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared account such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 130 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not ship with full server root access (we, at, think that this is a slight defect), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared website hosting plans. This hints that a well-known graphical environment is available to all users who are not confident enough to administer a virtual private web server, yet require more power and resources than a private virtual server can offer. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Innovator Host' can be defined as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $26.00 for the Level 2 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Innovator Host' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' requirements, 'Innovator Host' provides an assortment of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of site. According to 'Innovator Host', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Innovator Host' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server ships with free-of-cost billing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Innovator Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a tiny weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web page hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any FTP client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Innovator Host' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
