A survey of Hume and Services

We, at, have chosen 'Hume and Services' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we believe that this succinct evaluation of 'Hume and Services' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Hume and Services' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hume and Services' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting services delivered by 'Hume and Services'. 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 site hosting accounts delivered by 'Hume and Services' are powered by an in-house designed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an autonomous bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have colossal predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting corporations cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud website hosting system. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since many clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really need, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web site hosting package that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you save capital that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Every web hosting account provided by 'Hume and Services' offers an online site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Hume and Services' distributes shared site hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the entire World is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages provided 'Hume and Services' are very well stocked and come at an affordable price (starting from $2.75 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may seem difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Hume and Services' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared webspace hosting account through a Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared accounts. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not ship with full root access (we, at, regard this as a small disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting accounts. This signifies that a familiar graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual private web server, but at the same time need more power and features than a virtual private web server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Hume and Services' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Hume and Services' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'Hume and Services' offers a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'Hume and Services's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'Hume and Services' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each server provides free billing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Hume and Services' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Hume and Services' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
