A survey of Makim Hosting

We, at pma-cpa.com, have selected 'Makim Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we imagine that this succinct review of 'Makim Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the simple fact is that 'Makim Hosting' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Makim Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at pma-cpa.com, have noted is the modest prices of the shared site hosting plans delivered by 'Makim Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans delivered by 'Makim Hosting' are powered by a custom created, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an individual group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have considerable difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting companies are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the price really low (because numerous clients are located on one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually demand, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you economize funds that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Each website hosting account delivered by 'Makim Hosting' includes an online site builder and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Makim Hosting' furnishes shared web hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, approximately the entire planet is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Makim Hosting' are quite well appointed and are available at a very attractive price (beginning from $3.00 for the Tiny plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Makim Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a conventional shared web page hosting package through a hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When contrasted with a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include full root privileges (we, at pma-cpa.com, think of this as a little disadvantage), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting accounts. This hints that a known GUI is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to administer a VPS, yet need more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Makim Hosting' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Tall plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to pma-cpa.com, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Makim Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'Makim Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'Makim Hosting's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from pma-cpa.com, deem that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Makim Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server offers free-of-charge billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Makim Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at pma-cpa.com, consider this a small defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (pma-cpa.com's) forecast is that the great point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our (pma-cpa.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Makim Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
