An assessment of Blue Point Host

We, at, have chosen 'Blue Point Host' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. Hence we think that this succinct evaluation of 'Blue Point Host' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Blue Point Host' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Blue Point Host' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have detected is the budget prices of the shared web site hosting solutions offered by 'Blue Point Host'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages provided by 'Blue Point Host' are driven by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a separate bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have great predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting vendors cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to make their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the hosting price very low (since a lot of clients utilize the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you spare funds that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still new. Every web hosting plan offered by 'Blue Point Host' comprises an online web site building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Blue Point Host' distributes shared hosting plans in several different countries around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting packages furnished 'Blue Point Host' are really well stocked and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $4.07 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual server may seem hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Blue Point Host' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a normal shared webspace hosting package through a web space hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not include complete root access (we, at, count this as a small weakness), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same website hosting CP user interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This implies that a known graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS hosting server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a private virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Blue Point Host' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Blue Point Host' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Blue Point Host' offers a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of site. In 'Blue Point Host's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Blue Point Host' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Blue Point Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Blue Point Host' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
