Cenmax (full name Cenmax Exim Limited) is a web hosting company based in India. Established in 2015, this vendor focuses on the provision of shared hosting, dedicated servers, VPS, and reseller solutions to businesses across India and around the world. Today, the company provides hosting to over 3000 customers in India, the U.S., U.K., Germany, Mexico, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia. Cenmax’s simple attractive website is available only in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Cenmax’s servers are housed in modern data centers located in the U.S., India, the U.K., Mexico, Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia. Their hosting solutions come with the following standard features:
- Free one-click installer with 460+ scripts
- Free SSL certificate for all domains
- Free SSH access
- Unlimited disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Free daily backups
- Easy-to-use cPanel control panel
- Pure SSD-based I/O operations & caching
All Cenmax data centers use Cisco-based intelligent packet routing and top notch hardware infrastructure. Servers use pure SSD-based I/O operations and caching so that the websites they host load 20 times faster than websites hosted on traditional HDD servers. And clients’ websites are better-secured thanks to isolated containers technology.
Cenmax can deploy your website in a matter of seconds, and they also offer free website migrations. Once your website is up-and-running, Cenmax will back up your data (daily) and restore it for free. In addition, their server platforms automatically store three copies of your website data across different devices for the safety and security of your important information.
This vendor does not provide any email hosting solutions, and it’s a bit challenging to locate their VPS hosting on their website. However, users of WordPress, Joomla, and other CMS platforms will be pleased to know that their hosting solutions are optimized specifically for these popular content management systems.
Pricing and Support
Cenmax has found a way to deliver attractively priced hosting plans packed with high-quality features and subject to very few limitations. They have adopted a straightforward pricing model with a monthly billing cycle and no hidden charges.
You get a free domain for life as long as it is hosted with them, and a free SSL certificate for every domain they host for you. They offer a 30-day “no questions asked” money-back guarantee, and you also benefit from their time-tested, award-winning 99% uptime guarantee.
You can reach the Cenmax 24/7 support team via email, ticketing system, and live chat. But notably, there is no support phone number. Average response times are pretty short: 15 minutes for submitted tickets and just two minutes on live chat. However, the vendor does warn that some tickets could take 24 hours to get a response. Most importantly, the support team is professional, polite and well-versed with hosting issues. For those of you who prefer to support yourselves, there is a fairly detailed knowledge base and a nice FAQ section.
