Connexeon web hosting solutions are powered by redundant and high-performance cloud facilities. Whether you want to manage them yourself or opt for managed cloud hosting solutions, the cloud server hosting ensures that your hosting infrastructure comes with redundancy of resources such as servers, network, and storage facilities as well as VMware virtualization technology.
Because Connexeon provides its own hardware, network infrastructure, and basic configuration, the setup and configuration of cloud servers are done very quickly providing flexibility and scalability. And even when you want to change your requirements, you can do so without investing in hardware expansion and you won’t have to go through downtime due to upgrades or migrations.
With Connexeon shared web hosting solutions, users get to choose either Linux or Windows OS platforms. Both hosting solutions are divided into two packages: the Walk plan and Run plan. The Linux hosting solutions are suitable for HTML and PHP websites and include a choice of either Ubuntu or CentOS Linux distributions. It also includes features such as PHP 5.3 and MySQL 5.0.
Although PHP and HTML websites work on Windows OS platforms, the Windows hosting plans are best suited for ASP.NET sites. It includes a selection of either Windows Server 2008 or 2012 and also comes with .NET Framework 4.5, MVC 5, and MSSQL Server 10.50 databases. All shared hosting packages include one free domain name, xPanel control panel, and daily backup options.
Pricing and Support
Connexeon cloud server solutions come with a pay-as-you-grow payment model. All the same, its shared web hosting solutions are quite expensive and come with monthly billing cycles. Its prices are listed in euros.
Connexeon promises high-quality services with high availability yet it seems to shy away from committing to an uptime network guarantee. This vendor offers no money-back guarantee, either.
You can reach out to the Connexeon support desk via telephone, email, or through a contact form. Additionally, they are available via ticketing system and have remote support service, though the vendor’s website does not seem to have a live chat. The technical support staff offers 24/7 support so that in case of service failures or concerns by customers, they can help you tackle all the issues. That said, my email query to this support team was never addressed.
