An assessment of Advance Softs

We, at, have chosen 'Advance Softs' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Therefore we think that this concise review of 'Advance Softs' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Advance Softs' presently provides domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Advance Softs' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared web site hosting packages provided by 'Advance Softs'. 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 site hosting accounts offered by 'Advance Softs' are powered by an in-house devised, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting providers are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to devise their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud hosting system. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since plenty of clients are located on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud site hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you actually demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web site hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web page hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still novel. Each hosting plan offered by 'Advance Softs' comprises an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Advance Softs' supplies shared web hosting accounts in several different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, almost the whole planet is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Advance Softs' are very well equipped and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $4.42 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual web hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Advance Softs' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to administering a normal shared web hosting account through a site hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting packages. When matched against a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not include complete root-level access (we, at, consider this a little disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared plans. This signifies that a known GUI is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a VPS can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Advance Softs' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'Advance Softs' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' needs, 'Advance Softs' supplies a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of website. In 'Advance Softs's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'Advance Softs' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Advance Softs' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Advance Softs' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
