Though you wouldn’t think it from looking around our website, it’s been a pretty constructive few weeks since my last blog post. We’re still working hard to bring you the new features that we’ve planned, and although they are taking longer than anticipated, things are looking great. Soon we will be at the stage where we’d like a handful of our clients to become testers and provide feedback and suggestions on these features – so if you’d like to help out, please let us know.
6 Month Recap
It’s been around 6 months since our public launch, and we’re extremely happy with how things have progressed up until this point. We’ve made a few positive changes (such as increasing our packages) and all in all believe that so far we have established a service that our clients can be extremely happy with, not only from a hosting performance and reliability perspective, but also from a customer service and support perspective. But… there’s always room for improvement. We absolutely welcome any and all feedback from our existing clients, and we invite you to tell us how we can provide you with the best hosting service around. Even if your suggestion involves an extremely complex new system that could take us 6 months to develop and put into production; we’d like to hear it.
A Little Extra
When looking at our packages page, I noticed that compared to the amount of diskspace and bandwidth that we were offering, the number of subdomain and addon domains we provided wasn’t really balanced. I’ve now increased these to try and obtain a better ratio of space and bandwidth, and believe these to be much more in line. As always, existing customers will receive these changes immediately.
Faster than MediaTemple VPS’s?
It’s not often that our clients actually test the performance of our servers and compare them against their existing hosting, so it was nice to see this post on our forums, informing us that our shared hosting server “Elisha” outperforms their existing $150/month VPS from MediaTemple. MediaTemple are an extremely large and well known hosting company, so this was a hugely positive comment.
As our Why Us? states, we use powerful hardware to ensure that performance is top notch. Additionally, we also continually monitor and adjust our servers for optimum performance – something very few hosts do. Why should shared hosting have to be slower than dedicated? We don’t believe it has to be at all.
Thanks for the report, daniel!
Help Spread the World
Many of you will have been customers of ours now for several months, and we’d like to ask you to help get the word out about ThisWebHost. It’s certainly no mystery that the best form of advertising is direct or word of mouth advertising. With your help, we can grow this* substantially and improve upon every aspect of our hosting further.
Please consider taking a few minutes of your time to write a review of our hosting. Places like WebHostingTalk are fantastic communities that have “real” feedback from real clients, and are completely invaluable from a marketing perspective.
If you have a blog, please blog about us or mention us in one of your posts. If you use Twitter, feel free to twit about us. If you frequent a forum and somebody asks which host you recommend, please spare a thought for us.
Anything you can do to help spread the word about us is heavily appreciated. So much so that… who knows? Maybe we’ll reward you for it (yes, seriously). Let us know where you’ve helped tell the world about ThisWebHost!
