A review of Flying Sulcer

We, at, have chosen 'Flying Sulcer' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we expect that this succinct assessment of 'Flying Sulcer' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Flying Sulcer' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Flying Sulcer' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the cheap prices of the shared hosting accounts offered by 'Flying Sulcer'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages delivered by 'Flying Sulcer' are driven by an in-house built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a different host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based hosting corporations are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered hosting system. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the hosting price really low (because plenty of clients share one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web space hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you spare funds that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still new. Each web site hosting account furnished by 'Flying Sulcer' sports an online website builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Flying Sulcer' delivers shared web space hosting packages in several different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the entire planet is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'Flying Sulcer' are quite well equipped and are available at an affordable price (starting from $3.75 for the BNI - Domain Name Plan plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Flying Sulcer' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a conventional shared hosting account via a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a fee-free site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not include root access (we, at, count this as a small negative point), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting accounts. This signifies that a familiar graphical environment is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a VPS server can bestow on them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the VPSs can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Flying Sulcer' can be labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Flying Sulcer' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' demands, 'Flying Sulcer' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the web hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of website. In 'Flying Sulcer's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Flying Sulcer' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server comes with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Flying Sulcer' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a tiny drawback, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $34.99 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Flying Sulcer' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
