An evaluation of Nils

We, at, have selected 'Nils' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we anticipate that this concise assessment of 'Nils' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Nils' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Nils' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have noticed is the low prices of the shared website hosting accounts offered by 'Nils'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting accounts delivered by 'Nils' are driven by a custom created, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a different set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting vendors are not able to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must devise their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine cloud hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the price very low (because numerous users use one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site expands. So, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every site hosting plan supplied by 'Nils' boasts an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Nils' delivers shared hosting plans in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole Earth is covered to present you and your visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting solution at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans supplied 'Nils' are very well appointed and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $3.92 for the Business package).

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Nils' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its users' demands, 'Nils' provides a selection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any type of site. According to 'Nils', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs provided by 'Nils' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server offers free invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'Nils' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Nils' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
