An evaluation of Duo Servers

We, at, have chosen 'Duo Servers' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. This is why we consider that this succinct assessment of 'Duo Servers' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Duo Servers' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Duo Servers' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have detected is the reasonable prices of the shared web page hosting accounts supplied by 'Duo Servers'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting plans delivered by 'Duo Servers' are powered by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a separate set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have huge difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting distributors are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to concoct their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are powered by a real cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the site hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of users share one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered site hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed require, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web page hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your site expands. In this way, you spare funds that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting account provided by 'Duo Servers' comprises an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Duo Servers' provides shared webspace hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'Duo Servers' are very well equipped and are available at an excellent price (starting from $4.99 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a VPS hosting server may appear hard to administer. That's perhaps why 'Duo Servers' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to managing a regular shared web page hosting package through a web hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared website hosting account such as a fee-free web site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not come with root privileges (we, at, think that this is a small problem), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This suggests that a recognizable graphical interface is accessible by all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS web server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual private web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Duo Servers' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Duo Servers' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' expectations, 'Duo Servers' offers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the servers boast: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of web site. In 'Duo Servers's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Duo Servers' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server ships with free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Duo Servers' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $35.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of website hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the impressive point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Duo Servers' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $95.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
