An evaluation of The Claypoole Group

We, at, have selected 'The Claypoole Group' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we expect that this concise assessment of 'The Claypoole Group' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'The Claypoole Group' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'The Claypoole Group' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have perceived is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting services furnished by 'The Claypoole Group'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting accounts delivered by 'The Claypoole Group' are driven by an in-house designed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a separate pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have considerable problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting distributors are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to build their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (since many customers use one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny website hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. So, you economize cash that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Every web hosting package supplied by 'The Claypoole Group' sports an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'The Claypoole Group' supplies shared web space hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole planet is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable site hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting services supplied 'The Claypoole Group' are quite well appointed and come at an affordable price (beginning from $2.92 for the Starter plan).

Dedicated Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'The Claypoole Group' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' anticipations, 'The Claypoole Group' provides a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of site. In 'The Claypoole Group's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans offered by 'The Claypoole Group' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-cost billing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'The Claypoole Group' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a minor negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'The Claypoole Group' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
