An evaluation of Renstay

We, at, have selected 'Renstay' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we think that this succinct review of 'Renstay' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Renstay' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Renstay' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the low prices of the shared webspace hosting services supplied by 'Renstay'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans provided by 'Renstay' are driven by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting suppliers are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must build their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the website hosting price really low (because many users use one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud web hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you spare funds that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each hosting package furnished by 'Renstay' arrives with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Renstay' offers shared site hosting services in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the entire World is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting solution at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'Renstay' are very well stocked and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from £2.58 for the Simple plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Renstay' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared website hosting account through a web hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a fee-free site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not come with root-level access (we, at, count this as a little problem), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared web hosting plans. This means that a recognizable GUI is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, yet demand more power and features than a private virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Renstay' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from £17.06 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Renstay' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' needs, 'Renstay' provides a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the web servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'Renstay', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Renstay' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every server ships with free-of-cost billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Renstay' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of £28.12 GBP. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Renstay' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from £34.13 for the Atom 2c package.
