Why Choose Us?
MaxNOC™ Managed Hosting
There are many hosting companies to choose from, and we realize that you have many options. That's exactly why we separate ourselves from the competition in every way we can.
If one factor had to be chosen above all others, perhaps our motive is what makes us most different. We are willing to do whatever it takes to make you one hundred percent satisfied.
Your prices seem to be higher?
It might look like that, however please note that most hosting companies provide you tricky (but still legal) information to alter your decision making. Before comparing pricing of our goods and services, please make sure you have the correct data from the competitor you are evaluating. At the end of the day, you'll see that you are actually saving with MaxNOC.
What do you mean tricky?
Let's look at the following dedicated server data format, which is provided as a detailed information by most hosting companies.
- A Server from the Popular Hosting Company
- Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz CPU
- 1024 MB RAM
- 80 GB Hard Drive
- 2,000 GB Data Transfer
- 30 Day Money Back Guarantee
At first, It looks just fine, the data shows you the CPU, RAM, Hard Drive, Monthly Bandwidth Capacity and also tells you that they have a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
However, it might not be really what it seems. Let's check each line one by one and ask ourselves the following questions.
Intel 2.8 Ghz CPU ?
Is this Intel Processor Hyper Threading Enabled?
Is this Intel Processor 64Bit Enabled?
How much L2 cache has it got?
What type of CPU Socket does it use?
1024 MB Memory ?
Is this DDR or DDR2?
What's the Clock Speed of the Memory?
If this is DDR, is it 266Mhz or 333Mhz or 400Mhz?
If this is DDR2, is it 533Mhz or 667Mhz or 800Mhz?
80 GB Hard Drive ?
Is this IDE or EIDE or SATA-I or SATA-II?
What's the RPM (speed) of the Hard Drive?
2000 GB Data Transfer ?
Is this a 10Mbit or 100Mbit or 1000Mbit port?
Is this a burstable bandwidth plan?
If it's not burstable, what's the maximum transfer speed I can get per sec?
What type of switching hardware do you use?
30 Day Money Back Guarantee ?
Do you refund everything including the setup fee or is it only the monthly fee?
As you see, this is what we call with tricky but legal information. You might not be actually getting what you think you are going to.
I got that, what else might be tricky?
The other crucial components of hosting is the hardware you use and the data center you operate. For instance, below is the type of chassis we use for a typical Intel / AMD systems (other than Xeon and Opteron Systems) with 4 hard drives.
The other popular hosting company might setup the server we just examined by using a chassis like the one below.
The difference is obvious to most eyes. MaxNOC chassis gives you the cooling and the safety you can never have with the other chassis. MaxNOC provides you enterprise class products and services by all means.
Let's look at another component, power. All the power outlets we use to connect any type of hardware (servers, routers, switches, etc...) is from APC. Below is where your server will be connected to if you order one from us.
The other popular hosting company might use a not-so-bad (which means intended for home use) pdu device to connect your server.
Using low quality components, it is very possible to setup a server that has less setup fee or monthly fee than MaxNOC. Competitors might even waive the setup fee and you might think it's a no brainer at that time.
I got that too, what else?
The list can keep going, from network infrastructure to upstream providers, one can list dozens of variables that may reduce the pricing and deggregate the performance of a system.
We are not telling you that all of our competitors use low quality components and we are just great. The moral of the story is that you should be very careful when picking up a hosting company. At MaxNOC, you might find us a little bit more expensive, but we will definetly exceed your expectations with the quality of both the infrastructure and the customer support.
How do I know if MaxNOC is different?
You really can't know the difference before using our services. All of our services come with a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee, including the setup fees. You have absolutely nothing to loose to try MaxNOC Managed Hosting. Feel free to browse our website and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
