A review of Duo Servers

We, at, have picked 'Duo Servers' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we suppose that this brief assessment of 'Duo Servers' is perchance going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Duo Servers' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Duo Servers' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have seen is the cut-rate prices of the shared web hosting plans provided by 'Duo Servers'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting accounts offered by 'Duo Servers' are driven by an in-house devised, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel webspace hosting corporations are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to design their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered web hosting system. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the web site hosting price very low (because many users are located on the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web page hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really require, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you spare money that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Each site hosting plan delivered by 'Duo Servers' includes an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Duo Servers' furnishes shared web space hosting solutions in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, practically the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'Duo Servers' are very well stocked and are available at a very low price (beginning from $5.24 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a VPS web server may seem hard to handle. That's perhaps why 'Duo Servers' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a standard shared web site hosting account through a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web hosting plans. When matched against a shared web page hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include complete server root access (we, at, think of this as a minor inconvenience), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web hosting Control Panel tool as the shared hosting accounts. This hints that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to handle a virtual server, but at the same time need more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Duo Servers' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Duo Servers' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' demands, 'Duo Servers' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of web site. In 'Duo Servers's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Duo Servers' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-cost billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Duo Servers' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a minor downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $35.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Duo Servers' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $95.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
