A survey of tarantini

We, at, have selected 'tarantini' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Hence we suppose that this brief evaluation of 'tarantini' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'tarantini' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering nearly the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'tarantini' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared web space hosting services furnished by 'tarantini'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts provided by 'tarantini' are powered by a custom developed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an individual pack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have big problems with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting distributors are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the web space hosting price amazingly low (because lots of clients utilize one and the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered website hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your website expands. So, you save cash that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Every web hosting plan provided by 'tarantini' offers an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'tarantini' furnishes shared website hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, almost the whole planet is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages provided 'tarantini' are quite well equipped and come at a very cheap price (beginning from €2.88 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'tarantini' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a typical shared account via a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared account such as a free site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated accounts do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, consider this a minor negative point), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This suggests that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual private hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which host the VPS server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'tarantini' can be labeled as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful web hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'tarantini' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' requirements, 'tarantini' offers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the web servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'tarantini's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'tarantini' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every hosting server provides free billing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers offered by 'tarantini' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight inconvenience, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of €31.45 EUR. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'tarantini' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from €63.37 for the Atom 1 package.
