A survey of ITMax Hosting

We, at thenewrush.com, have selected 'ITMax Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Hence we imagine that this brief evaluation of 'ITMax Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'ITMax Hosting' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing virtually the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'ITMax Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at thenewrush.com, have detected is the low prices of the shared website hosting plans furnished by 'ITMax Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts furnished by 'ITMax Hosting' are driven by an in-house developed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a different pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have enormous difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting firms are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must concoct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the price very low (since numerous customers utilize one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small 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 commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence expands. That way, you spare money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting plan offered by 'ITMax Hosting' arrives with an online web site building tool and over forty popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'ITMax Hosting' delivers shared web hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages furnished 'ITMax Hosting' are really well equipped and come at an attractive price (starting from $5.38 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's probably why 'ITMax Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a standard shared hosting account through a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting account such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When compared to a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not include full root-level access (we, at thenewrush.com, regard this as a small weakness), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same website hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This implies that a well-known graphical environment is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS server, but at the same time require more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can furnish them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-rate hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'ITMax Hosting' can be classified as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Mini plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In thenewrush.com's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'ITMax Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' requirements, 'ITMax Hosting' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of website. In 'ITMax Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from thenewrush.com, believe that all dedicated server specs offered by 'ITMax Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'ITMax Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at thenewrush.com, consider this a slight inconvenience, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (thenewrush.com's) forecast is that the great point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (thenewrush.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'ITMax Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Montana plan.
