Nothing but problems with this host. Very unsatisfactory experience.
Slow response, hidden fee
Quality hosting from an offshore company
Shinjiru Hosting is an offshore hosting company that is based out of Malaysia. They have been in business since 1998 and have managed to be able to offer quite good hosting services at very nice prices. They have data centers located in Malaysia, Singapore and Europe, which makes them a great option for anyone who is looking to target customers throughout this part of the world.
Whenever working with offshore hosting companies you need to be careful to ensure you are actually getting the quality and reliability that you need. Shinjiru is definitely a good company to work with, and you won't have to worry about any of the issues commonly associated with these types of companies.
They have hosting packages at every level including shared, cloud, VPS, and dedicated. They also provide great support, though it is through their local support teams so there may be some communication issues to work through. Overall, however, the experience you will get from this company will be very positive.
Uptime & Reliability
Very reliable services
Many people worry about the reliability of any offshore hosting company, but that really shouldn't be a concern here. They have uptime guarantees at many of their hosting packages, and their data centers are all well built with redundant connections to help minimize any type of downtime. In addition, Malaysia is a more stable place to do this type of business than many other countries in the region.
No matter what type of hosting you choose, you aren't likely to run into any major reliability problems. There were some complaints about slow load times for the shared hosting packages, which could be a clue that they are overselling their servers. With a company this size, however, it could also just be the few unhappy customers that are unavoidable.
Many packages with some nice extras
There are just too many hosting packages to go through them all here. The bottom line with all of them, however, is that you are going to get a great deal for the services they provide. All packages come with everything you need to get your site up and running quickly and easily.
They have cPanel and Plesk available for any package, which is a very nice perk that too many companies aren't offering for free anymore. You are also able to choose either a Linux or a windows system at every level. If necessary, you can choose to have your site anonymously hosted, which is a popular choice these days. You can also get SSL certificates through this company.
Shinjiru markets the fact that they offer over 1000 dedicated servers that are on site and ready for customer use, so you won't have to wait around for your server to be built.
Good support options from an offshore company
This is one area where many people may find complaints. They actually offer very good support, but since it is from people who speak English as a second language there can be some frustrating language barriers. This is especially difficult when speaking on the phone about potentially complicated issues.
This is easily overcome, however, by simply using their online chat or ticketing system, both of which work very well. When you do have issues, their technical teams have the ability to address them quickly and easily in most cases.
Good pricing but higher than many other offshore hosting companies
Shinjiru seems to have done a good combining the low price points that are commonly provided by offshore hosting with high quality hosting packages. The prices are quite fair, but not dirt cheap. This is a good thing since it clearly allows them to still offer high quality services to all their customers.
Overall they offer very good hosting
As long as you don't mind working with an offshore hosting company, you won't find too many better options. In fact, if they didn't make it clear that they were an offshore company, most people likely wouldn't even notice it when they use their normal services.
