A survey of GaskinTech

We, at, have selected 'GaskinTech' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Hence we think that this short evaluation of 'GaskinTech' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'GaskinTech' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'GaskinTech' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the reasonable prices of the shared website hosting packages delivered by 'GaskinTech'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting accounts offered by 'GaskinTech' are powered by a custom devised, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an independent set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have great complications with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting providers are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered web hosting system. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of clients use the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a basic site hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each web space hosting plan supplied by 'GaskinTech' contains an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'GaskinTech' provides shared site hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast web hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts provided 'GaskinTech' are quite well stocked and are available at a very reasonable price (starting from $3.00 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual web server may seem complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'GaskinTech' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a normal shared web space hosting package via a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not include root privileges (we, at, consider this a tiny weak point), but the good point is that they are managed via the same CP tool as the shared packages. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual web server, yet need more power and supplies than a VPS can supply them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'GaskinTech' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'GaskinTech' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' anticipations, 'GaskinTech' provides an array of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'GaskinTech', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server plans offered by 'GaskinTech' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server offers free billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'GaskinTech' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight disadvantage, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'GaskinTech' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
