A survey of Creative Twist

We, at, have selected 'Creative Twist' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we presume that this concise assessment of 'Creative Twist' is perchance going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Creative Twist' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Creative Twist' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have observed is the low prices of the shared web page hosting packages supplied by 'Creative Twist'. 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 hosting packages provided by 'Creative Twist' are driven by a custom created, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have big difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to concoct their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the hosting price very low (because lots of customers are located on one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each web space hosting plan delivered by 'Creative Twist' contains an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Creative Twist' delivers shared web space hosting services in several different countries across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, nearly the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans furnished 'Creative Twist' are really well furnished and come at a low-cost price (starting from $5.83 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may appear tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Creative Twist' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a conventional shared webspace hosting plan through a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared accounts. When compared with a shared web hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not come with complete root-level access (we, at, consider this a slight minus), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS web server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a virtual server can provide them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Creative Twist' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $39.99 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful website hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Creative Twist' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' needs, 'Creative Twist' delivers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady work of any sort of site. According to 'Creative Twist', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs provided by 'Creative Twist' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server arrives with free-of-cost billing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Creative Twist' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $35.99 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Creative Twist' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $45.00 for the Atom 2c package.
