Features and Ease of Use
SeiMaxim offers four Linux shared hosting packages (in the U.S.A. and the Netherlands), five Linux and five Windows VPS packages (also in the U.S.A. and the Netherlands), a large number of dedicated server packages (in the U.S.A., the Netherlands, Russia, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and Canada), and six cloud server packages.
SeiMaxim’s Linux shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 99.999% uptime guarantee
- 80 GB to 230 GB storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- cPanel control panel
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- Unlimited email accounts
- POP3, SMTP, IMAP
- CGI, Perl, Python, Ruby on Rails, and GD library
- Cron jobs
- Weekly backups
The included Softaculous one-click installer helps you install additional CMS or other software programs such as WordPress (to build a website or blog), phpBB (for a web forum), or OpenCart (as an e-commerce solution). Once your website is up-and-running, you can secure it with a free SSL certificate that should give your visitors more confidence.
If you opt for a VPS rather than shared hosting, you can take advantage of the VDP backup and recovery solution that saves virtual machine image backups to disk. If you decide on a dedicated server instead, you can get hold of a GPU-equipped one.
SeiMaxim uses Tier 3 and Tier 4 data centers, so you can rest assured that your servers should stay up almost all the time.
Pricing and Support
SeiMaxim’s Linux shared hosting packages are priced above average. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars, British pounds, or euros using PayPal, credit cards, bank transfer, iDeal, GoCardless, Bitcoin/Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, or Ethereum. Billing cycles range from monthly to triennial, with significant discounts for sign-ups longer than semi-annual.
Although this provider’s “refund policy” page alludes to a seven-day money-back guarantee for shared hosting and virtual servers, a customer support agent confirmed a longer 15-day money-back guarantee. There is 24/7 technical support, and you can contact this company for customer service (technical or otherwise) by telephone, ticket, email, online contact form, or live chat.
I received rapid responses via live chat, which were followed up by email:
For self-support, the knowledge base boasts a vast number of tutorial-style posts.
How much does SeiMaxim cost?SeiMaxim offers plans from $8 to $13. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which SeiMaxim plan should I get?My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. SeiMaxim can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from SeiMaxim here.
How good is SeiMaxim’s customer support?SeiMaxim is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of SeiMaxim being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
