KRAXNET is the parent company of XNet.cz, which has been in the industry for more than ten years. You can get PHP web hosting and Ruby on Rails hosting along with domain registrations services from XNet.cz. The website of XNet.cz supports Czech, English, and Slovak.
Features and Ease of Use
XNet.cz offers three PHP shared web hosting plans EASY, LITE, and PROFI. The company also offers three Ruby on Rails hosting plans (LITE, PROFI, and DEDICATED – the first two being shared and the last one being a dedicated server plan). With EASY, LITE, and PROFI web hosting plans, you’ll get
- 650MB-2000 MB disk space
- 5GB-100GB data transfer
- PHP 7 support
- Apache2/MySQL 5/FTP
- SMTP, POP3/S, IMAP/S
- Virus scan and spam filter
The two higher plans come with a service warranty and backup warranty. The former refers to your website being available for at least 99.995% in plan PRO, 99.99% in plan LITE, and 99.9% for plan EASY. Backup warranty stands for the ability to restore the entire server environment (including the data set) at any time.
XNet.cz’s Ruby on Rails (RoR) hosting is a special feature of the company. Its parent company KRAXNET is the first hosting provider to offer these services in the Czech Republic. The company launched its hosting in June 2007at the conference Ostrava on Rails. As an application server for Ruby, it uses Mongrel and Apache as a front-end web server.
A key element of XNet.cz’s Ruby on Rails hosting is the integration of Capistrano into workflows, which makes your task of installing your application on the server and managing it very simple.
XNet.cz uses top-of-the-line IBM Blade for its hosting and all its system components are redundant, thus offering you optimal performance. To protect your data, the company backs up all server and data settings regularly.
With the company’s RoR hosting, you’ll get SSH access (for complete control over your hosting environment), and DNS servers (that help improve your internet experience).
Pricing and Support
XNet.cz’s PHP web hosting plans are pricey. These plans are payable in CZK (Czech Koruna) via credit card, bank transfer, bank’s cash desk, or depositing cash at the post office. Available billing period is a year, which I find extremely restrictive. However, since the company offers its EASY plan for free for a year (you’ll have to pay the price of domain registration though), it more than makes up for the lack of shorter billing terms.
The company doesn’t offer any money-back guarantee as far as I can see.
Phone and email are the only ways to reach the customer support of KRAXNET. I sent them an email but got no answers to my queries.
