An evaluation of Cyber 16

We, at, have selected 'Cyber 16' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we deem that this concise review of 'Cyber 16' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Cyber 16' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Cyber 16' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared web page hosting plans offered by 'Cyber 16'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting accounts delivered by 'Cyber 16' are driven by a custom invented, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an independent group of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel webspace hosting suppliers cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to build their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic clustered web page hosting platform. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price really low (because plenty of customers are located on one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud site hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic site hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you save cash that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting account delivered by 'Cyber 16' sports an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Cyber 16' provides shared hosting plans in a number of different regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting services supplied 'Cyber 16' are really well furnished and are available at a very good price (beginning from $3.33 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual web server may appear troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Cyber 16' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared web site hosting account via a web hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated package is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web page hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not offer full server root access (we, at, think that this is a small defect), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting accounts. This hints that a known GUI is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a VPS web server, yet require more power and resources than a virtual private hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Cyber 16' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Tall plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers need a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Cyber 16' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' requirements, 'Cyber 16' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of site. According to 'Cyber 16', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Cyber 16' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server ships with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Cyber 16' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny problem, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Cyber 16' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $110.00 for the Xeon D plan.
