An assessment of R2D2 Consultancy Services

We, at, have chosen 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' to be our current domain and hosting provider. Therefore we believe that this short assessment of 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the budget prices of the shared web page hosting solutions furnished by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' are powered by a custom designed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an individual host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have colossal difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting companies are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud web hosting solution. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the webspace hosting price very low (since lots of users use one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud website hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, precluding a situation where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a small webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you economize capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting plan provided by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' comes with an online website building tool and over forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' supplies shared site hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole World is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting services furnished 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' are quite well equipped and are available at a very reasonable price (starting from £4.91 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared webspace hosting package via a Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When compared to a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not arrive with root-level access (we, at, consider this a slight minus), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This suggests that a recognizable graphical user interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a private virtual server, yet demand more power and system resources than a virtual server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from £18.31 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' requirements, 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'R2D2 Consultancy Services's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-charge invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of £29.29 GBP. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from £105.26 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
