An evaluation of Duo Servers

We, at, have picked 'Duo Servers' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this concise review of 'Duo Servers' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Duo Servers' presently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Duo Servers' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the modest prices of the shared web hosting accounts supplied by 'Duo Servers'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages provided by 'Duo Servers' are powered by an in-house designed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an autonomous bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have big complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting companies are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must build their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since multiple users utilize one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each hosting plan offered by 'Duo Servers' offers an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Duo Servers' offers shared hosting services in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Duo Servers' are really well stocked and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $5.24 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a virtual server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Duo Servers' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to handling a conventional shared hosting plan via a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not come with full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a small inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web hosting packages. This signifies that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual private web hosting server can deliver. This is like that because the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful cutting edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Duo Servers' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Duo Servers' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its clients' demands, 'Duo Servers' offers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'Duo Servers's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs provided by 'Duo Servers' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every server offers free-of-charge billing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Duo Servers' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $35.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably render the use of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Duo Servers' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $95.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
