A review of BMtec

We, at, have chosen 'BMtec' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. This is why we consider that this short evaluation of 'BMtec' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the mere truth is that 'BMtec' currently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'BMtec' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have seen is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting services supplied by 'BMtec'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans furnished by 'BMtec' are powered by an in-house developed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have considerable problems with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting corporations are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by a real cloud web hosting system. With a shared web site hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the site hosting price very low (since multiple customers utilize one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful website hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web site hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you economize funds that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still brand new. Each site hosting account delivered by 'BMtec' boasts an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'BMtec' delivers shared webspace hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the entire World is covered to supply you and your visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'BMtec' are really well stocked and come at an attractive price (starting from $3.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's probably why 'BMtec' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a standard shared web hosting package via a webspace hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared to a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not offer complete root-level access (we, at, think that this is a small drawback), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same web page hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This implies that a known graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual web hosting server, yet demand more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the virtual web hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the VPSs can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'BMtec' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful website hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'BMtec' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' requirements, 'BMtec' delivers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the web servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'BMtec', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'BMtec' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server offers free billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'BMtec' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a little disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'BMtec' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
