Huge props to my hosting company @nexcess for the great support. This is why I always try to get clients over to them. (source)
Nexcess and Magemojo are both good Magento hosts. If you are looking for the cPanel then you’ll want Magemojo, if you do no care about cPanel then go with Nexcess. (source)
I used to dread having to call our hosting company. Then we spent 3 months migrating a LARGE number of clients over to you (not an easy process). You’ve lived up to and exceeded our expectations. You’ve been willing to admit when you’re wrong and quick to help us track down mistakes that we’ve made. All in all, we’re proud to be an official partner of Nexcess. (source)
Do you have any experience with the host? Have your say on Nexcess here.
For customers in the US, the UK and Australia, a Nexcess hosting plan makes a lot of sense since they own five datacenters in these locations. This company, headquartered in Michigan, USA, has been around since 2000, striving to be considered the “masters of caching and configs.” Once a lowly startup with owners who met in garages and basements, Nexcess has experienced phenomenal growth and even garnered a few awards along the way, such as Inc. 5000 honoree, a Deloitte Technology Fast 500 and a Trustwave Trusted Commerce partner.
Nexcess bills itself as the company that goes “beyond hosting” and provides “13x the performance of standard web hosts.” What exactly does all that mean? For one thing, it means that Nexcess hosting is faster than a lot of their competition, in particular, when their servers are used to host a site with a Magento storefront. This is accomplished through the use of Percona versus MySQL databases, an NGINX-powered server versus Apache, the use of Magento’s FPC (full page cache) or Varnish + Turpentine. Those latter two are features of Magento, for which Nexcess optimizes their Magento hosting package.
For WordPress hosting, Nexcess offers an optimized blog platform package. These packages are specially built with the latest version of WordPress preinstalled and built-in components that automatically optimize your site’s performance. This is hosting on shared or dedicated Dell Enterprise servers in a RAID 10 configuration powered by dual Intel Xeon processors. The network hardware is specifically configured to provide the fastest, most secure and most reliable hosting platform for your WordPress site.
That is what makes Nexcess unique: a variety of plans that are specially optimized to perform well with various platforms and functions. In addition to those WordPress and Magento hosting plans, they also offer plans geared toward sites that use Expression Engine and vBulletin. All of these plans are available in three different levels: dedicated server, the regular plan and enterprise-cluster hosting. Oh, and if you want that plain old vanilla shared hosting plan, they’ve got that, too.
In addition to all these different hosting plans, Nexcess offers a global CDN (content delivery network) to help ease the load on your server and enhance search engine placement; this can be added to any plan for an additional monthly fee. The company also sells a variety of SSL certificates from standard to multi-domain, as well as domain registration services.
All of these packages and services are backed by a customer support team that is available 24/7/365. In addition to telephone, fax, email and online chat options for contact, the Nexcess site has a client portal, several web tools (global DNS checker, secure password generator, client environment page and Unix timestamp converter), a list of software mirrors and supported software in addition to a system status page, all easily accessed and available online.
Nexcess provides very robust, reliable and scalable hosting that can easily be customized to meet your specific needs, both now and in the future as your online presence grows. This is hefty hosting with blazing-fast speeds along with all the extra features and services you might need to dominate the internet.
