A review of TAG Hosting

We, at, have picked 'TAG Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we think that this brief review of 'TAG Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'TAG Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'TAG Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have detected is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting accounts offered by 'TAG Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting plans offered by 'TAG Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have colossal troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting suppliers are not able to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must build their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the web site hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of customers share the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you actually need, precluding a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your online presence expands. Hence, you save money that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each and every web space hosting plan provided by 'TAG Hosting' ships with an online website builder and over 40 popular script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'TAG Hosting' offers shared web hosting accounts in several different regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the whole Globe is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting packages delivered 'TAG Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from $3.92 for the GetMore plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no practice, a private virtual web server may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'TAG Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a standard shared plan via a site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web hosting plan such as a fee-free site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not offer full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a small minus), but the good point is that they are managed via the same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This signifies that a known GUI is accessible by all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual web server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'TAG Hosting' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Level 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'TAG Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' needs, 'TAG Hosting' supplies an assortment of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of website. In 'TAG Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'TAG Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each web server ships with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'TAG Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'TAG Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
