An evaluation of Axtreme Host

We, at nm-solution.com, have selected 'Axtreme Host' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this concise assessment of 'Axtreme Host' is maybe going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Axtreme Host' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Axtreme Host' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at nm-solution.com, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared hosting packages delivered by 'Axtreme Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans furnished by 'Axtreme Host' are driven by a custom built, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have mammoth complications with, because cPanel is a single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting providers cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web site hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the website hosting price really low (since lots of users are located on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered site hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Thus, you spare funds that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Every hosting account supplied by 'Axtreme Host' boasts an online web site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Axtreme Host' offers shared webspace hosting packages in several different regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting plans provided 'Axtreme Host' are quite well stocked and are available at a very modest price (beginning from $4.50 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a private virtual web server may appear troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Axtreme Host' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a regular shared web space hosting account via a webspace hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting plan such as a fee-free web site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When matched against a shared package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not arrive with complete root-level access (we, at nm-solution.com, count this as a small problem), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared site hosting packages. This signifies that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a VPS, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a private virtual web server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Axtreme Host' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In nm-solution.com's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Axtreme Host' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' needs, 'Axtreme Host' supplies an assortment of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'Axtreme Host's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from nm-solution.com, think that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Axtreme Host' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Axtreme Host' are all unmanaged. We, at nm-solution.com, count this as a tiny inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $35.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (nm-solution.com's) forecast is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (nm-solution.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Axtreme Host' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
