A review of ITMax Hosting

We, at, have picked 'ITMax Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Hence we expect that this concise review of 'ITMax Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'ITMax Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'ITMax Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting solutions 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 provided by 'ITMax Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an independent pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting corporations cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud web hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous customers use the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually require, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small site hosting account that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can invest in publicizing the web page while it is still new. Every webspace hosting package provided by 'ITMax Hosting' comes with an online website building tool and over 40 popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'ITMax Hosting' supplies shared web site hosting solutions in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, practically the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'ITMax Hosting' are very well appointed and are available at a very modest price (starting from $6.08 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may seem troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'ITMax Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a standard shared site hosting package through a web hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server plan 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 to the shared webspace hosting packages. When matched against a shared package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not ship with full root access (we, at, regard this as a slight drawback), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared web space hosting plans. This signifies that a familiar GUI is accessible by all customers who are not confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can deliver. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'ITMax Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $39.99 for the Mini package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'ITMax Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'ITMax Hosting' delivers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the web servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of site. According to 'ITMax Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'ITMax Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'ITMax Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'ITMax Hosting' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
