An assessment of eyax

We, at, have selected 'eyax' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we expect that this brief review of 'eyax' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'eyax' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'eyax' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have seen is the inexpensive prices of the shared hosting plans delivered by 'eyax'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting accounts supplied by 'eyax' are powered by a custom developed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a different pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have immense problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting distributors are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the price amazingly low (since a lot of users are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web page hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your site grows. In this way, you spare cash that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Every web site hosting plan delivered by 'eyax' boasts an online web site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'eyax' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the entire World is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a convenient place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'eyax' are really well appointed and are available at a very low price (starting from €2.79 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a VPS server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'eyax' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a conventional shared website hosting package via a web hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting account such as a free site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared web space hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When compared with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not arrive with full root access (we, at, deem this a little minus), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This hints that a well-known graphical user interface is available to all customers who are not confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a VPS server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'eyax' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'eyax' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' anticipations, 'eyax' provides a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'eyax's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'eyax' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server offers free invoice transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'eyax' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a little drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €30.40 EUR. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of website hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the great point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'eyax' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from €38.58 for the Atom 2c package.
