Nexcess Overview

Nexcess is a great option for customers with Magento ecommerce sites already set up. Everything at the company is made to make sure that Magento sites find their optimal environment. Nexcess takes both the big guy as well as the small guy into consideration when it comes to hosting. Although the company has slightly more expensive hosting plans when compared to others out there, Nexcess makes up for it by providing a professional service that goes much deeper than just giving clients disk spaces and pointers on how to get a web page up and running.

Ease of Use

Nexcess has an entire page that is dedicated to a selection of browser based tools that helps its clients with the day to day maintenance of their websites. For example, if you’re the type of person that has a single password for every account you have online, you will need to make use of the Nexcess Secure Password Generator. If you want to make sure that your website is compatible with your web browser, you can make use of Nexcess Client Environment, and when it comes to time formats, you can use the easily navigable Nexcess Datestamp Converter.


The list of applications and software that are supported on the Nexcess hosting platform is quite impressive. For frameworks/tools, you have the likes of Lamp Web Hosting and Django. The company’s emailing lists and forums include phpBBB and vBulletin, while PhpGallery and FFMpeg take care of multimedia. All these applications, and many more, were designed to work exclusively on Nexcess, which gives webmasters a vast selection of ways to enhance their sites’ functionalities.

If you are a sensible store owner, you will want to make sure that you have as much help as possible in order to make people aware of your store and the goods on sale. This, of course, means driving traffic to your site, and Nexcess will help you get all the attention you need when you sign up for its Content Delivery Network (CDN) to improve search engine placement. For 250 GB worth of traffic, you need only pay $25; for 500 GB worth of traffic, it’s just $47.50 and $145 for 1500 GB.

Customer Support

Support at Nexcess can be contacted via email, telephone, live chat and even by taking a look at the company’s blog for solving frequent inquiries. Then there is the fully-stocked Knowledge Library where you can find information on all the issues regarding your hosting. Nexcess support is available 24/7, which is great for those who spend long hours optimizing their websites


If you desire a shared plan for a Magento store that is already online, then you will have to go for Nexcess SH 100, SH 200, SH 300 and SH 400 plans. The prices are $6.95, $11.95, $16.95 and $21.95 respectively. But if you want to opt for your own dedicated server space, you will have to pay a little extra for the two hosting plans: SIP 400 and SIP 500, priced at $539.95 and $674.95.

Nexcess also offers hosting for those that just need a home for their WordPress blogs. For normal hosting, the price of the plans are $11.95 (WP-OBP 100), $41.95 (WP-OBP 200), and $141.95 (WP-OBP 300). For corporate WordPress blogs, the prices go up to $1449.95 and $2449.95. The differences between the hosting plans rests mainly in the fact that there is a difference in the amount of space that is allotted to your site, the number of extra stores that you receive, and the amount of bandwidth that you are allocated. Since you will be running a store, you will need to take a little more time to analyze which plan you will need to start off with.
