A review of Digital Monkey

We, at, have picked 'Digital Monkey' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Hence we imagine that this succinct review of 'Digital Monkey' is perchance going to be very helpful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Digital Monkey' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Digital Monkey' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared web site hosting packages furnished by 'Digital Monkey'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'Digital Monkey' are powered by an in-house devised, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an autonomous bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting distributors cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the hosting price really low (because lots of clients use the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered website hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you save funds that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each web hosting plan provided by 'Digital Monkey' comes with an online website builder and over 40 widely used script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Digital Monkey' provides shared web hosting accounts in several different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Digital Monkey' are really well stocked and are available at a very affordable price (beginning from $7.50 for the basic3 plan).

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'Digital Monkey' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' anticipations, 'Digital Monkey' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'Digital Monkey's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'Digital Monkey' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server provides free billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Digital Monkey' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a tiny downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Digital Monkey' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
