An assessment of ITMax Hosting

We, at plushconcepts.com, have picked 'ITMax Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. Hence we think that this brief evaluation of 'ITMax Hosting' is perchance going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'ITMax Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'ITMax Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at plushconcepts.com, have observed is the reasonable prices of the shared site hosting services offered by 'ITMax Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages supplied by 'ITMax Hosting' are driven by a custom created, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have immense difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus preserving the website hosting price very low (since a lot of users utilize one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced web space hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny web site hosting account that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. Thus, you save capital that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each site hosting account supplied by 'ITMax Hosting' contains an online site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'ITMax Hosting' provides shared web hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA 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, practically the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'ITMax Hosting' are very well appointed and come at a very good price (beginning from $3.75 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS may seem troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'ITMax Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a conventional shared plan through a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting account such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When matched against a shared account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not offer full root privileges (we, at plushconcepts.com, deem this a minor minus), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same web hosting CP tool as the shared web hosting plans. This hints that a user-friendly graphical environment is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and system resources than a VPS hosting server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'ITMax Hosting' can be categorized as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Mini plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In plushconcepts.com's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'ITMax Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' demands, 'ITMax Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'ITMax Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from plushconcepts.com, consider that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'ITMax Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every web server includes free-of-cost billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'ITMax Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at plushconcepts.com, think of this as a little negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (plushconcepts.com's) prognosis is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our (plushconcepts.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'ITMax Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Montana package.
