Features and Ease of Use
Axarent offers Starter, Business, and Platinum hosting plans as part of their Linux SSD Web hosting. All three plans include 24/7 support. The plans come with a good number of features that can meet the demands of any web project. Here is what you can expect when you sign up:
- Free domain
- Spanish IPs
- Unlimited traffic
- Anti-hacking protection
- One-click install
- Free migration of your website and email accounts
- Intel SSD disks
Unlike most hosting services that use cPanel, Axarnet uses the Plesk control panel, that lets you manage and configure your website or web app. The company also offers shared hosting with real Spanish IPs, which is great if you want to build an SEO-friendly website that will rank high in Hispanic search on Google. Once your site is up, you won’t need to worry about security or vulnerabilities. All plans include free malware removal and automatic patching.
What I like about Axarent is that they provide free website and email account migration to their servers. You also get access to a variety of web modules with your Linux SSD plan. That’s good news for anyone who wants to create a personal blog, photo gallery, online store, forum, area map, or contact forms. It mirrors the Installatron one-click installer in many ways, as it includes WordPress, Prestashop, Drupal and other open source web apps.
The Axarnet web builder has an easy-to-use interface and a set-up wizard that lets you design, build, and publish your website. With the drag-and-drop interface, you don’t need any HTML knowledge to create or edit your content. There are hundreds of web templates to choose from, so you can design and customize your website just the way you want.
Pricing and Support
The standard hosting package comes with 20GB SSD disk space, 20 email accounts, anti-hacking protection, and free migration. All the starter hosting plans are scalable, meaning you can acquire more bandwidth and storage as your business or organization grows. When you upgrade you get more disk space, which you can use to host multiple websites and additional email accounts.
As far as pricing goes, they’re more or less within the market range. Payment is in euros and they accept all major credit cards. From time to time, the company offers discounts of up to 50% off.
Axarent.es offers multiple support channels. It’s nice to know that all the plans include a free trial and 24/7 customer support. Live chat support is available in Spanish and English. I tried the chat early in the morning, around 6 a.m. +3GMT, but couldn’t find a live chat operator at that time.
