administered by 'Names Lagoon'

A review of Names Lagoon

We, at, have picked 'Names Lagoon' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. Therefore we deem that this brief evaluation of 'Names Lagoon' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'Names Lagoon' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Names Lagoon' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have noted is the modest prices of the shared hosting services furnished by 'Names Lagoon'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting plans provided by 'Names Lagoon' are driven by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting vendors are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of users share one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud website hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny webspace hosting account that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Thus, you spare capital that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Each web page hosting package offered by 'Names Lagoon' boasts an online web site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Names Lagoon' provides shared web space hosting solutions in several different regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Names Lagoon' are really well equipped and come at a very low price (beginning from $4.92 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Names Lagoon' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a normal shared website hosting account through a web hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared account such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When matched against a shared webspace hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not include full server root privileges (we, at, regard this as a small weakness), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same site hosting CP GUI as the shared web page hosting plans. This suggests that a known graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a Virtual Private Server can give them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Names Lagoon' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Names Lagoon' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' needs, 'Names Lagoon' offers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Names Lagoon', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages offered by 'Names Lagoon' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server ships with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Names Lagoon' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Names Lagoon' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
