Review : Metawerx Java Web Hosting Company, Australia

Dear friends! Today I have come with lot of useful information about Metawerx – a java web hosting company. Metawerx is one of the world’s promising, prominent and purely java web hosting oriented company in Australia.

Metawerx is serving clients all over the world. They have very strict rules in choosing hosting clients. They do not accept hosting request if it do not meet their criteria. You can check it by sending mail to them. In case they have confirmed your hosting account, you have 100% safety assurance and uptime guarantee. I came to know with some of their quality clients.

I am in progress to write one more article. In that article I would share the latest technology updates, clients, news and discounts with Metawerx web hosting, Australia. I will share link.

Based on their support to my mail, I will say Metawerx has excellent customer support. This article is an honest review of Metawerx.

Review about Metawerx History and Speciality

Q : Please give a brief description about Metawerx history, achievements, awards and work environment?
A : Metawerx started hosting commercially in October 1997. Since that time, our focus has been primarily on Java, databases and Java-related technologies. Over the years, our platform has become very focussed on security and reliability (failover systems) and making it easy to deploy your applications to our platform.

We were the first to:
– host Java servlets/JSP in Australia (JDK1)
– offer Java 7 and Java 8 environments as part of our standard platform
– offer the TomEE Java-EE container environment
– obtain 100% on the SSL Labs test

Q : What you find different in Metawerx than other java web hosting companies?
A : 1. A dedicated Java platform for development and production deployments. 2. Experienced support from real developers. 3. High reliability, high security. 4. We are always first to adopt the latest technology.

Moreover I found that they have purely java developers in their team. I read one personal story about Metawerx technical support at http://www.servlets.com/isps/servlet/ISPReviewView?id=16

John Litter said about Metawerx : My developer left me stranded and I found that the support team at Metawerx went out of their way to help me get updates and changes made. I have never experienced such prompt customer service and support, way beyond the call of duty. The team at Metawerx are a shining example of what IT support and service should be for the clients they attract. In my book you are “Simply The Best”. John Littler

A : Our cloud platform grows to match your requirements and your JVM runs on a load-balanced cluster. We do not offer VPS, and we do not offer “unlimited” services.

There is really no such thing as “unlimited” anything, as you know.Companies who offer unlimited services will limit you in other ways, such as network speed, or force you to upgrade when you reach a predefined limit.

Customers should evaluate their actual and future requirements and approach a web-hosting company with that information.
