Many Quality Concerns
To The Point hosting is a hosting company that offers only shared hosting options. When you visit their website you will immediately be a little concerned because of the way it is laid out and the color scheme. It is a lime green with yellow and blue, none of which look good together at all. They also use outdated frames, which make it very difficult to navigate.
They have servers in the Netherlands and France, which is nice. They also seem to have been in business for quite a while, which is impressive given the concerns that are found throughout their business. The site is in French, and presumably most of their customers also speak French, which is why it has been difficult to find real users who offered their opinions on the quality, which makes it hard to get a real user perspective.
Uptime & Reliability
99.5% Uptime Guarantee
The hosting with this company seems to be pretty stable. They offer a 99.5% uptime guarantee, which is not that great at all. From what I am able to discover, this company is stable for uptime but their servers seem to be oversold so that there is significant slowness during peak hours and things like that.
Very Limited Features
First of all, it is difficult to really figure out what features they offer because they do a terrible job at laying out all that they have to offer. Once you do figure it out you will see that they don't really have much diversity in what they offer. Three shared hosting plans is all you can choose from. The first one is 100 megs of disk space, which is ridiculously small. They also limit you to 2 gb of bandwidth. From there it only goes to 200 and 500 megs of disk space, which still isn't enough.
Looking all through their site I couldn't find a comprehensive feature list, which makes it impossible to figure out what they have and don't have. Judging by the limited amount of information they do provide, the features are also going to be very limited.
Limited Information Available
The information available from this company is extremely limited. They do say that their support is staffed '24/24' which I assume they really mean 24/7 but it is really hard to tell given the other poor services they provide.
Overpriced for what you get
The prices with this company may not seem to be too bad at first glance, but when you realize that you're not getting any real good features it is easy to see that they are overcharging. The entry level hosting package is 28.50 Euro per year, and that goes up to 80 Euro per year for the highest level package. This does include VAT, so that is nice. For this price, you could get hosting from a company that offers much better services.
Not a Good Option
The bottom line with this hosting company is that there is really no reason to use them for hosting. They are outdated and have very little to offer anyone. There are much better hosting companies that provide better features for lower prices.
