A review of ITMax Hosting

We, at talmd.com, have picked 'ITMax Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we expect that this concise evaluation of 'ITMax Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'ITMax Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing virtually the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'ITMax Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at talmd.com, have perceived is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting packages provided by 'ITMax Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts delivered by 'ITMax Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a different stack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have considerable problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting firms cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to build their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud web hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the site hosting price really low (since a lot of customers share one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, evading a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web site hosting plan that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you spare funds that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still novel. Every web page hosting plan furnished by 'ITMax Hosting' comes with an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'ITMax Hosting' delivers shared site hosting services in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting packages supplied 'ITMax Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (starting from $5.83 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's probably why 'ITMax Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared web hosting package via a CP tool. They have all the features of a shared web hosting package such as a free site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting packages. When compared with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not come with full server root access (we, at talmd.com, think of this as a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting accounts. This goes to say that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a VPS web hosting server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'ITMax Hosting' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $39.99 for the Mini package.

Dedicated Servers

In talmd.com's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'ITMax Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' anticipations, 'ITMax Hosting' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of site. In 'ITMax Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from talmd.com, believe that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'ITMax Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server offers free-of-charge invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'ITMax Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at talmd.com, consider this a minor drawback, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (talmd.com's) prediction is that the exceptional point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (talmd.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'ITMax Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c package.
