An assessment of ideamaxima

We, at, have selected 'ideamaxima' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we presume that this succinct review of 'ideamaxima' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'ideamaxima' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'ideamaxima' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have detected is the low prices of the shared web page hosting packages delivered by 'ideamaxima'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting packages supplied by 'ideamaxima' are powered by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a different set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have colossal troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting corporations cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to create their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the price really low (since a lot of customers share the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually demand, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each web site hosting plan supplied by 'ideamaxima' arrives with an online site building tool and over forty widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'ideamaxima' distributes shared web hosting solutions in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'ideamaxima' are quite well furnished and are available at a very modest price (starting from $2.92 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual server may seem troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'ideamaxima' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a normal shared hosting plan via a website hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with a shared web space hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not come with full root access (we, at, think that this is a slight problem), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same CP user interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-class servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'ideamaxima' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'ideamaxima' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'ideamaxima' delivers a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady performance of any kind of website. In 'ideamaxima's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'ideamaxima' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'ideamaxima' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $35.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of webspace hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the great point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'ideamaxima' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
