A review of Innovator Host

We, at, have selected 'Innovator Host' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. This is why we imagine that this concise review of 'Innovator Host' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Innovator Host' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Innovator Host' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have seen is the budget prices of the shared web space hosting solutions provided by 'Innovator Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans delivered by 'Innovator Host' are powered by a custom built, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have enormous predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting suppliers are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered hosting system. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price very low (since multiple clients utilize one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really need, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful website hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web site hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. That way, you save cash that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Every web page hosting plan delivered by 'Innovator Host' boasts an online web site building tool and over 40 popular script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Innovator Host' distributes shared web hosting accounts in several different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire World is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting packages provided 'Innovator Host' are very well equipped and are available at an affordable price (beginning from $6.08 for the Quantum plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual web server may appear tough to handle. That's probably why 'Innovator Host' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to managing a typical shared web site hosting package through a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a free site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 130 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated plans do not offer full root-level access (we, at, consider this a slight downside), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared web site hosting plans. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual private web server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual web hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server web hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Innovator Host' can be labeled as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $26.00 for the Level 2 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers require a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Innovator Host' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Innovator Host' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of website. In 'Innovator Host's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Innovator Host' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Innovator Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Innovator Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
