An assessment of Maxelerator Ltd

We, at, have selected 'Maxelerator Ltd' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we expect that this concise review of 'Maxelerator Ltd' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Maxelerator Ltd' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Maxelerator Ltd' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting solutions provided by 'Maxelerator Ltd'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts provided by 'Maxelerator Ltd' are powered by a custom developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an independent stack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel website hosting suppliers are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each client pays only for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price really low (since lots of clients utilize one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website grows. That way, you save cash that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each web site hosting plan offered by 'Maxelerator Ltd' comprises an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Maxelerator Ltd' supplies shared web site hosting solutions in several different regions across the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole World is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Maxelerator Ltd' are very well equipped and come at a very attractive price (starting from £2.98 for the Small Business package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS web server may appear hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Maxelerator Ltd' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a typical shared web site hosting package through a hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting plan such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not ship with full root access (we, at, regard this as a minor disadvantage), but the plus is that they are administered via the same website hosting CP tool as the shared packages. This hints that a recognizable graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a virtual web server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Maxelerator Ltd' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from £16.93 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Maxelerator Ltd' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'Maxelerator Ltd' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. In 'Maxelerator Ltd's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'Maxelerator Ltd' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server ships with free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Maxelerator Ltd' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to £27.03 GBP. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers various supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Maxelerator Ltd' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from £56.65 for the Atom 1 plan.
