Overview

Some of its hosting services are, managed WordPress, managed VPS, managed dedicated servers, shared web hosting (Linux and Windows hosting), reseller hosting, and domain name registration.

HostNexus provides geographically diverse server locations in over 7 countries around the globe: the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Singapore, Australia, Serbia, and Japan. This allows users to host their servers and websites near their site’s visitors or customers.

Its cloud infrastructure is built using top-grade SSD hard drives in redundant RAID-10 hot-swappable arrays that not only increase the performance of your website but also allows the vendor to increase server resources on-the-fly without downtime.

One of the standout features that distinguish this vendor from other vendors is its use of TurboStack infrastructure engineered to serve websites at ridiculous speeds. It is bundled with the power of Nginx (fastcgi_cache) page caching with the ability to use PHP 7 FPM, Memcached, Redis, MariaDB, and Opcache. Also, Cloudflare CDN is available with the dynamic content cache, Railgun.

Users also get the services of multi-tier backups of their website files and databases and they can easily manage the backups via their control panel. The backups are performed every day, and in the event of a loss, you can restore your copies any time from the last 2 weeks.

Pricing and Support

Its prices are quite expensive and they come along with a very high setup fee. However, the hosting solutions come with a list of advanced features, plus the vendor will help you migrate your website resources at no cost whatsoever. Users can choose their preferred billing cycles: monthly, annual, biennial subscriptions. Prices are listed in U.S. dollars.

There is a “coupons and specials” section on the HostNexus website, and before you purchase your first order, perhaps you can check it out and see if there are any discounts available. Besides, this hosting company offers users with 30 days money-back guarantee and you get up to 99.9% uptime server availability.

HostNexus

To contact HostNexus, send them a message via pre-sales’ contact form, email or support ticket. Alternatively, users can contact the vendor’s technical team on its live chat. All the same, the hosting company does not have telephone support.

My email query to this vendor went unanswered,

The vendor’s knowledge base is sufficient enough with quite a lot of helpful tutorials and articles for DIY customers.
