A review of iApps Guatemala

We, at, have selected 'iApps Guatemala' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we believe that this concise evaluation of 'iApps Guatemala' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'iApps Guatemala' currently provides domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'iApps Guatemala' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have perceived is the reasonable prices of the shared web page hosting accounts delivered by 'iApps Guatemala'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'iApps Guatemala' are driven by an in-house built, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an autonomous stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have colossal troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting vendors cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered website hosting system. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price very low (because lots of clients share the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny hosting account that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you save capital that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Each web hosting account delivered by 'iApps Guatemala' boasts an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'iApps Guatemala' furnishes shared web hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting services offered 'iApps Guatemala' are very well furnished and are available at a very affordable price (beginning from $3.00 for the Beginner package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'iApps Guatemala' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a typical shared web hosting account via a webspace hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting package such as a free website builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting accounts. When matched against a shared plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not include full server root privileges (we, at, count this as a minor problem), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared webspace hosting plans. This suggests that a known graphical interface is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS server, yet require more power and features than a VPS web hosting server can deliver. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'iApps Guatemala' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the guys from 'iApps Guatemala' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' expectations, 'iApps Guatemala' delivers a collection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of web site. In 'iApps Guatemala's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'iApps Guatemala' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server offers free billing software and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'iApps Guatemala' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the remarkable point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'iApps Guatemala' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
