Logo 7thSense


The e-commerce agency 7thSENSE has specialized in the creation and implementation of e-commerce solutions for over ten years. Its customers include well-known companies such as Kärcher, WMF and VAUDE.

For these and many other customers, the agency from Reutlingen develops user-friendly and technically sophisticated online stores. The 40 employees focus on “360° in e-commerce”. This concept includes the knowledge of different store systems, B2B/B2C/D2C, screen design, user experience and all related highly complex topics.

7thSENSE offers customers and interested parties a system audit on request, in order to uncover weak points and, if necessary, potential for improvement. The agency uses comprehensive checklists to examine the existing system for code quality, implementation, programming, data storage, data origin, interfaces, but also on-page SEO and usability. After the check, the customer receives results with recommendations for action.

For us, maxcluster's managed hosting makes all the difference! It is really managed, because there is always someone I can call and ask. And we also appreciate the clearly arranged Managed Center, with the overviews of the individual clusters, the respective performance, etc. It helps a lot to keep track of the individual clusters. It helps a lot to keep track of our managed stores. We also appreciate the reliability and predictability, such as the Central Update Day on the first Tuesday of every month. We always know when something is going to happen, which gives us a good basis for planning. And the fact that the customer's interests are paramount can also be seen in things like the replacement of hardware in the middle of the night, so that the customer's store is affected as little as possible.

    Doors on offer

    In the online store of DEINE TÜR, customers can access the largest range of doors in the German-speaking world.In addition to countless configuration options for exterior and interior doors, DEINE TÜR also offers an extensive range of accessories and, beyond that, brand-name floor coverings and tiles. From the Leipzig location, the employees take care of the trading platform and the worldwide shipping of the products.

    The requirements DEINE TÜR had for managed hosting were not supported by the company's previous hoster. In addition, the page loading time was not satisfactory in some cases. To achieve the desired hosting level, DEINE TÜR would have had to hire a full-time admin.

    Due to existing experience with maxcluster, the company's management decided to have its online store hosted by maxcluster.

    “The hosting here is reliable and everything simply works. We have competent contacts at our side at all times, so we can concentrate on our core business”, Tobias Hille, Head of Backend at DEINE TÜR, explains the switch.

    “And in the - rarely occurring - case of emergency, the fast response time and the (proactive) tips on possible improvements are convincing”, adds Tino Mewes, Head of Frontend at DEINE TÜR.


    maxcluster offers fully customizable hosting combined with the comfort of managed hosting. The competent contact persons at every support level always keep an eye on the big picture and proactively give advice on improvement possibilities.

    Tobias Hille, Head of Backend at DEINE TÜR

    We can approach support at any time with requirements from a developer's point of view and are always well met. And if there is no contact person available on our side, the support acts independently and in our interest and finds the best solution.

We needed a hosting provider that could proactively identify performance issues with us and work with our developers to resolve them. The flexible web cluster solution, the fast support for our developers and the extensive Varnish know-how finally convinced us that we are in the right hands with maxcluster.

  • 8MYLEZ


    The e-commerce specialists at 8MYLEZ implement sophisticated projects based on Shopware, helping their customers to achieve sustainable success. The company's philosophy is that every store owner deserves first-class service and excellent code for their Shopware store. The goal is high-performance online stores with unique designs, which the customer receives from a single source at 8MYLEZ - quickly, reliably and transparently.

    As an agency specializing in Shopware, it was important for 8MYLEZ to have a competent contact for everything not related to the store system. When choosing a hoster, the agency therefore particularly appreciated maxcluster's focus on e-commerce and its own e-commerce stack as the basis for performance optimization of online stores.

    “Due to the specialization on e-commerce and the experience with Shopware, maxcluster supports us very strongly in error analysis from a hoster's point of view. This not only saves us time, money & nerves, but also gives us the opportunity to present a result to the customer faster”, says the agency.

    Service and support were important reasons for switching to maxcluster: “Communication was not as easy and smooth in the past as it is currently. Sometimes, for example, an answered ticket did not go to us but to the customer, which again cost time. The response times for ticket answers are very short at maxcluster and even if you ever need telephone support on the weekend or at night in an emergency, a qualified technician can always be reached.”

    For 8MYLEZ however, it is the combination of the areas of performance, technical know-how and service & support that are important for a good hoster.


    Our Shopware specialists develop very sophisticated online stores, with complex requirements for design, function and performance. That's why it's especially important for us to have a reliable hosting partner for an excellent foundation. With maxcluster we have found exactly this partner and can also rely on an excellent service towards our customers.

  • mitho®


    The mitho® agency in Berlin is fully committed to e-commerce and supports its customers with cross-media core competencies.

    The creation and realization of innovative ideas in the field of e-commerce and mobile web development are just as much a focus as the holistic implementation of complete shop solutions. The Berlin agency also offers custom-made products for interfaces between merchandise management and e-commerce applications.

    Due to the focus on e-commerce, mitho® needed a hoster who not only has many years of experience in this area, but who is also willing to think along with and rethink the problem in order to find the best possible solution.

    "For us, one of the biggest advantages of working with maxcluster is that we can save a lot of time because we can draw on the experience of the employees", says Béla Yannik Hahne, project manager at mitho®.

    Having a contact person around the clock is essential for a functioning day-to-day agency life: “When other providers had problems with the server or configurations had to be changed, support was often not available or was difficult to reach. In addition, our wishes or problems were often not understood. This is not acceptable for time-critical implementations - and they are standard in an agency."

    For the agency, the overall package of services was therefore decisive for switching to maxcluster: "We appreciate the friendly and dedicated communication and that in maxcluster we have a hosting partner who has everything in view and under control and whom we blindly blind to our customers can recommend. Everything is really right here.”


    maxcluster convinced us with its competent, friendly and, above all, fast support. If discrepancies arise, they are resolved quickly and communicated transparently. The Paderborn based company is characterized by a love of detail with a vision. The performance is top notch.
