An evaluation of Proxima

We, at zbf-tehnologie.eu, have selected 'Proxima' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we presume that this short review of 'Proxima' is perchance going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Proxima' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Proxima' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at zbf-tehnologie.eu, have noted is the modest prices of the shared hosting services offered by 'Proxima'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting accounts delivered by 'Proxima' are driven by an in-house invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an individual host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting companies are unable to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price very low (because many customers are located on the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny hosting account that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you save cash that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Every webspace hosting account provided by 'Proxima' boasts an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'Proxima' offers shared website hosting services in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, almost the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Proxima' are very well furnished and are available at a good price (starting from $4.83 for the Starter plan).

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to zbf-tehnologie.eu, big web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Proxima' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' demands, 'Proxima' provides a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and stable work of any type of site. In 'Proxima's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from zbf-tehnologie.eu, think that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Proxima' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server provides free billing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Proxima' are all unmanaged. We, at zbf-tehnologie.eu, think of this as a tiny drawback, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (zbf-tehnologie.eu's) prognosis is that the great drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP client useless. Our (zbf-tehnologie.eu's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Proxima' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c plan.
