An assessment of Duo Servers

We, at, have chosen 'Duo Servers' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we suppose that this short assessment of 'Duo Servers' is perchance going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Duo Servers' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Duo Servers' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared web space hosting plans provided by 'Duo Servers'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages supplied by 'Duo Servers' are driven by an in-house developed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an autonomous bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have huge troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting providers are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to devise their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud website hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (because lots of users are located on the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Thus, you economize money that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Every web space hosting plan provided by 'Duo Servers' comprises an online web site building tool and over forty widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Duo Servers' distributes shared web hosting accounts in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, practically the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Duo Servers' are very well equipped and come at a very affordable price (starting from $4.99 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a VPS hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Duo Servers' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a normal shared web hosting account through a hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting plan such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server account is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not include root-level access (we, at, count this as a little inconvenience), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web site hosting CP user interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This hints that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all customers who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a VPS web server can provide them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Duo Servers' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Duo Servers' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' requirements, 'Duo Servers' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of website. In 'Duo Servers's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Duo Servers' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every server includes free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Duo Servers' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $35.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Duo Servers' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $95.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
