An evaluation of BitLife Host

We, at, have selected 'BitLife Host' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we believe that this brief review of 'BitLife Host' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'BitLife Host' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'BitLife Host' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have noticed is the cheap prices of the shared hosting services provided by 'BitLife Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting packages offered by 'BitLife Host' are powered by a custom created, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an independent set of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have huge complications with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based hosting suppliers are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must concoct their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each client pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price really low (since numerous customers are hosted on the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a basic site hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your site expands. In this way, you spare money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Each site hosting plan supplied by 'BitLife Host' offers an online web site builder and more than forty popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'BitLife Host' offers shared webspace hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole World is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'BitLife Host' are really well stocked and come at an excellent price (beginning from $4.17 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may appear problematic to administer. That's probably why 'BitLife Host' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a regular shared web space hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting account such as a fee-free website building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web space hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not come with complete root-level access (we, at, regard this as a minor weak point), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same web hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting packages. This goes to say that a known GUI is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to handle a VPS web server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a Virtual Private Server can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'BitLife Host' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'BitLife Host' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'BitLife Host' supplies a selection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and steady work of any type of web site. In 'BitLife Host's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs provided by 'BitLife Host' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server provides free billing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'BitLife Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia CP will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'BitLife Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $45.00 for the Prestige package.
