An evaluation of Creative Twist

We, at, have selected 'Creative Twist' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Therefore we suppose that this short evaluation of 'Creative Twist' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Creative Twist' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Creative Twist' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have detected is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting accounts delivered by 'Creative Twist'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans offered by 'Creative Twist' are driven by a custom designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a separate host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have considerable difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting distributors cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must build their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared hosting package, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous customers utilize the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your site grows. So, you save funds that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Each web space hosting package provided by 'Creative Twist' includes an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Creative Twist' furnishes shared web space hosting plans in several different regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, almost the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Creative Twist' are really well appointed and are available at a good price (starting from $6.00 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Creative Twist' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to administering a standard shared web site hosting account through a Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared with a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated packages do not come with root-level access (we, at, regard this as a tiny defect), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web page hosting CP tool as the shared web hosting plans. This signifies that a well-known GUI is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a private virtual web server can give them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Creative Twist' can be branded as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $19.95 for the Fast plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'Creative Twist' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'Creative Twist' delivers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of site. In 'Creative Twist's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Creative Twist' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each server ships with free-of-cost billing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Creative Twist' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $35.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Creative Twist' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $130.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
