AXN Data started out in 2002 but became its current incarnation more recently in 2018. For feature-packed Finnish hosting, it could be hard to fault.


Overview

AXN DataAXN Data Oy is a Finnish web hosting service provider that traces its roots back to 2002 when “AXN Data” was registered as an auxiliary company name for Kauppahuone Meritie Oy. Griffin-Goodwest acquired the name in 2016 and transformed it into the present AXN Data Oy in 2018.

Today, AXN Data’s Finnish-language website sells traditional web hosting and CMS hosting plans along with domain services, SSL certificates, DDoS protection, and SMS gateway systems.

Features and Ease of Use

AXN Data Oy offers four traditional shared hosting plans, three CMS web hosting plans, four cloud-based e-commerce packages, and two hosting plans for nonprofits. While the website mentions RVSiteBuilder and SitePad website building plans, only the former is available in the store.

The four traditional shared hosting plans provide:

  • 2 to 30 hosted domains
  • 2 GB to 10 GB disk space
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • 5 to unlimited email accounts
  • 1 to 10 MySQL/MariaDB databases
  • Free SSL
  • Daily server backups to two different locations

Gzip compression reduces the size of your web files for improved performance, and the Cloudflare CDN provides an extra performance boost by caching content close to your website visitors.

The Softaculous installer allows you to install popular CMS and other software with a single click (and without technical expertise). If you’re looking to set up a more comprehensive e-commerce store, you can choose one of the three e-commerce packages that let you customize the look and feel or your store. These e-commerce packages integrate with more than 50 payment agents, and you can integrate more via an API.

Other services, sold separately, include DDoS protection, mail-scanning, and bulk SMS.

Pricing and Support

AXN Data’s shared hosting plans are priced competitively. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars or euros on annual to triennial terms via online banking, credit/debit card, invoice, or (soon) Trustly. The 14-day money-back guarantee gives you two weeks to decide if this is the right host for you.

Contact the customer support team by live chat, telephone, ticket, or email. Although the live chat channel was unavailable when I wanted to try it, I received a reply to my pre-sales support ticket after five days:
