A review of geniaIT

We, at, have picked 'geniaIT' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Hence we imagine that this short evaluation of 'geniaIT' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'geniaIT' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'geniaIT' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared website hosting plans provided by 'geniaIT'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans furnished by 'geniaIT' are driven by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an independent stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have enormous predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting distributors cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must concoct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the hosting price very low (because a lot of users share the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered site hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic site hosting account that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web site expands. Hence, you save cash that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web space hosting package supplied by 'geniaIT' includes an online web site builder and over 40 popular script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'geniaIT' distributes shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole planet is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting services provided 'geniaIT' are very well appointed and come at a budget price (starting from $2.75 for the Tiny plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's probably why 'geniaIT' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a conventional shared webspace hosting account via a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting account such as a free website builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When compared to a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not arrive with complete root access (we, at, deem this a slight disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same web hosting CP tool as the shared web hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly GUI is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual web hosting server can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'geniaIT' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Level 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'geniaIT' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' needs, 'geniaIT' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of website. In 'geniaIT's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'geniaIT' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every web server ships with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'geniaIT' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a tiny weakness, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'geniaIT' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Salamander package.
