Israeli hosting provider MaxStore’s website hosting sits on a cloud platform. It also offers WordPress hosting, VPS, dedicated server solutions, cloud backup, SSL certificates, and domain registration.
MaxStore makes use of several data centers around the world, including Israel, the Netherlands, the U.K., the United States, Turkey, India, and Hong Kong. Its website is available in English and Hebrew.
Features and Ease of Use
MaxStore’s shared website hosting plans are available in Linux and Windows configurations. The entry-level SDH1 shared Linux plan includes 1000 MB of disk space, 30 GB of monthly data transfer, and hosting for a single domain. One level up, the SDH2 plan provides 2000 MB of disk space and 50 GB of data transfer per month. There are shared hosting plans that allow you to host more than one domain, and the SDH – Linux Unlimited plans come with unlimited disk space, monthly data transfer, and email accounts.
The hosting plans include:
- 99.9% server uptime guarantee
- One-click WordPress installation
- Website migration
MaxStore offers several utility and security options. SiteLock provides daily malware scanning and malware removal, FTP scanning, reputation management, network security scanning, and website vulnerability scanning. You can use CodeGuard for secure website backups and additional malware monitoring and remediation.
Finally, the Cloud Drive Backup service allows you to store data safely in the cloud, and access it from anywhere. Plans range from 10 GB to 500 GB and are paid for via a monthly subscription.
Pricing and Support
It’s surprisingly difficult to find MaxStore’s full range of web hosting packages unless you start the purchase process (for anything) and then look at all the other available plans.
The web hosting plans don’t come cheap. The entry-level single domain shared plan costs about the same as two fast-food meals per month, which is around 30% to 50% more expensive than many large providers.
It’s hard to say if the hosting plans are worth the prices because, at the time of writing, there were some broken links and much missing information. Be sure to shop around, but don’t assume that you’ll get a bad deal here.
MaxStore doesn’t cover itself with glory when it comes to customer support. The knowledge base is minimal, and my attempts to contact the company via its contact form and Facebook page fell on deaf ears. Feel free to contact this company (e.g., via telephone) if you can.
