A review of Talon Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Talon Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. Hence we presume that this succinct assessment of 'Talon Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Talon Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Talon Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting plans supplied by 'Talon Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting accounts supplied by 'Talon Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an independent set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have big problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting vendors cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to develop their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud site hosting solution. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the price very low (because numerous customers are hosted on the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered site hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you save capital that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each web page hosting package offered by 'Talon Hosting' contains an online site builder and over forty widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Talon Hosting' supplies shared web page hosting packages in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the entire planet is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Talon Hosting' are really well furnished and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $5.45 for the Start-Up plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's probably why 'Talon Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared webspace hosting plan via a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting package such as a free web site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated account is many times bigger than that of a shared account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not come with full server root access (we, at, consider this a slight inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting packages. This means that a known graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to manage a VPS web server, yet demand more power and system resources than a private virtual web hosting server can give them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Talon Hosting' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $25.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Talon Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' requirements, 'Talon Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Talon Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Talon Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server provides free invoicing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Talon Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Talon Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $90.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
