Reviews and expert opinion Mahan Server
Mahan Server has been in operation since May 2012. The web hosting company is based in Iran and it has over time been investing in world-class data centers to provide high-quality web hosting services to its worldwide customers. Some of its offerings include the following: shared web hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, VPS servers, among other services. The Mahan Server website is only available in Persian.
Features and Ease of Use
Mahan Server is a web hosting provider of web hosting solutions, virtual and dedicated server services. The hosting solutions feature the following specifications:
- Unlimited monthly bandwidth
- Unlimited add-on domain
- cPanel/Plesk control panel
- Dual Intel Xeon core processors
- SSD/SATA disk storage systems
Mahan Server virtual and dedicated servers are housed in multiple data center locations: Iran, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands. Other locations include Kansas City, the United States and Hetzner’s data centers in Germany.
Its web hosting solutions rely on unlimited bandwidth servers with powerful processors and high-speed SSD/SATA hard drives as well as 1GB ports. And this way, the hosting company can guarantee blazing fast page loading speeds of its customer’s websites.
Also found that Mahan Server web hosting accounts come with daily, weekly or monthly backup services so that users can protect their website files and data in the event a disaster strikes.
That said, the Mahan Server website seems designed exclusively for the Iranian market. As a non-Persian speaker, I could not understand some of the parts of the websites even after I tried translating the website using Google Chrome’s translating feature.
Pricing and Support
Mahan Server web hosting services are quite an attraction, and they fit almost all types of budgets. The hosting plans come with flexible billing cycles: this includes monthly, semi-annual, annual subscriptions. Prices are listed in U.S. dollars as well as Iranian rial.
All web hosting services include a contract refund guarantee, that is valid up to 30 days from the date of purchase. That said, the vendor claims to offer highly available website services but it does not commit to an uptime guarantee.
Customers can send the vendor a message by using a contact form available on its website. You can also contact the support staff via telephone, ticketing system or email. That said, I did not come across live chat support. The support staff, however, are available 24 hours to help solve some of the most burning issues that customers might be having.
Though this vendor’s support team responded to my email query, the response did not address any of the questions I had posed. Instead, the vendor simply asked that I forward my domain name, perhaps so that they could decide whether or not to address my queries.
Mahan Server does have a knowledge base section with a list of helpful “how-to” tutorials.
