ThisWebHost Review

Hi,

I’d like to review ThisWebHost.com, they’re actually called that ;).

I’m not affiliated with them, I’m just a happy customer.

I’ve been hosted for a month or two, and I still am.

I have one of their ‘standard’ packages, 2.5GB Space, 120GB Bandwidth, and WHM on top of that, all for $5.99 a month.

Here goes!

TOPICS: Please cover features such as the following and include your rating of the company with numeric (e.g., [8/10]) or verbal (e.g., [excellent, good, satisfactory, bad or unsatisfactory]) values. Providing a reason for your score would be most helpful.

General Features - 9/10

In all honesty, I’m not a technical whizz so I’m not going to be great at answering this question. I once emailed them about a Graphics Library which they had installed, so I think it’s a case of emailing them and finding out – usually with good news! :slight_smile:

Reliability - 9/10
We had one period of downtime which lasted 30 minutes, they emailed me about a week or two in advance and had they not done so I would never have known - so good on them :).

Customer Support - 9/10
Their support is faultless, I’ve emailed them on a few occasions to receive only the most useful and polite replies.

Pricing - 8/10
Although I’m sure you can find cheaper, the general services provided for this price is amazing. WHM was the real killer for me - it allows me to set up many websites on this account which is great.

Space - 9/10
I don’t think I’ll ever fill up 2.5GB :smiley:

Speed - 8/10
All of my pages load with great speed. Nothing super-lightning-fast, but it’s fast :slight_smile:

Bandwidth (Data Transfer) 10/10
Even if I did manage to fill that 2.5GB, I somewhat doubt I’d be able to fill 120GB of transfer :P. It’s more than enough for me.

SUMMARY 9/10

The Good

Incredible support, friendly people, and an all round great host. I can’t really fault them on anything. I was once late with payments and I contacted them and they understood - it’s fantastic how despite the low prices they’re still flexible with payments like this.

The Bad

I haven’t had any bad experiences with them so far :).

Your opinion

Perfect, I’m only writing this review because looking back I can’t believe I was ever with the over-priced and under-performing host that they call 1&1, and I’m so glad I moved. I can no longer imagine living without PHP support on a server, when before it was seen as a luxury for the few. Damn.

;D

I keep reading positive reviews about them. One more added to the pile. :slight_smile:

You could use pingdom.com’s free monitoring to be notified of downtime.

My own experience with 1and1 is not bad at all. Assuming I’m not a particularly lucky customer of theirs, it meant that Thiswebhost must be quite a performer. :slight_smile:

They are amazing. They offer unlimited sub-domains.
