Note: TMD Hosting has data centers all around the world, including Europe, the U.S.A., Asia, and Australia.

You can even get fully managed hosting, which shows just how far this company has come throughout the years. You also get free website transfer and website migration. This means that if you already have a website and want help in transferring it, TMD hosting will help you throughout the entirety of the process, and once it is completed, you’ll receive information about the required DNS change for your domain name.

To get an in-depth look as well as an understanding of how all of it works, I will be creating an account and going through every inch of the TMD hosting service to see if they live up to these claims and how good they actually are.

Question: Will I be able to upgrade my plan in the future?

Answer: All accounts at TMD Hosting are fully scalable and you can upgrade your plan at any time. The migration will be done by TMD Hosting technicians which will do that for you free of charge.

Getting Started With TMD Hosting

Creating an account is a simple process when it comes to the TMDHosting service.

Screenshot of the homepage

From the main website, you can click on “Get Started Now” or simply select one of the packages you want in order to get started.

On the main screen, you can select from:

For the purposes of this review, I’ll pick the Shared Hosting plan as I always do for these types of reviews as it showcases just how much I’m getting, even with the cheapest packages. Obviously, as you climb the price ladder you will end up getting much better performance, so I like testing them from the very start.

Screenshot of Shared Hosting Plans

Here you’ll find three plans: starter, business, and enterprise.

I’ll be using the starter package for this review.

Here, I’ll get:

  • Unlimited SSD Space (Fair Use, which means that you cannot really abuse the plan and go overboard)
  • Unlimited Bandwidth (The same applies here, everything is based on the average usage across all websites connected to the server)
  • 1 Website Hosted
  • Free Domain
  • Premium Support
  • Free cPanel
  • Weebly Sitebuilder
  • Basic Caching
  • Let’s Encrypt SSL
  • 60 days Money back guarantee

Let’s see how all of this works.

Screenshot of domain page selection

You’ll need to register a new domain or link your already pre-existing domain.

Screenshot of adding account information

Next, you’ll need to enter account information, such as email and password.

After that, you’ll need to add some client information, such as your first name, last name, street address, city, ZIP code, Country, Company, State, and phone number.

Going forward, you’ll need to choose your payment method.

Screenshot of adding payment and purchase information

You can pay using a Credit Card, PayPal, and Bank Transfer. Then you’ll need to pick a hosting location and period.

Screenshot of choosing a billing cycle

Additionally, you can select extra services such as:

  • Sitemap Generation
  • Google Search Console Integration
  • Google Analytics Integration
  • Sitelock Basic

You can enter a coupon code if you have one, agree to the TMDHosting terms of service and privacy policy and click on complete order.

Eventually, you’ll find this order confirmation.

Question: How long will it take to set up my account?

Answer: Once your purchase is complete, your account will be set up immediately after that. The whole process takes only a few minutes.

Setting Things Up at TMD Hosting

Once you set everything up, this is the main menu that you will be greeted by.

Screenshot of the client area

On this screen, you’ll have access to your invoices, services, domains, support tickets, the Weebly website builder, your support pin, and certain shortcuts.

The Weebly website builder is a unique aspect of this hosting provider as it allows you to create a unique website easily.

On the left side of the screen you will find the following menu options:

  • Home – Showcases shortcuts to certain features
  • Services – Showcases exactly what kind of services you have purchased
  • Domains – This lets you review your domains, renew them and even register new ones
  • Billing – The billing tab lets you view your invoices, conduct mass payment, manage your credit card or simply add funds
  • Support – This tab lets you access your support pin, tickets, and announcements
  • Open Ticket – You can easily open a support ticket through this menu

Screenshot of the Control Panel Access shortcut with Log in button

Find this control panel access shortcut and click on Log In (Website_name)

Here, you will gain access to the cPanel, where you can manage most of your website.

Performance, Speed and Uptime

When it came to the performance of my basic WordPress website, I saw an average speed between 500 and 700 ms, with consistent uptime. (If you want to know more about best WordPress hosting, click here)

This is average and works well, you won’t have any issues if you are running a simple blog or a simple eCommerce website.

Important: TMD Hosting has an uptime guarantee of 99.99%, which is considered excellent in this industry.

Level of Support at TMD Hosting

I like to do to test out the level of support is to simply request a refund and cancel my account, as this will prove the efficiency of the support team and the truth behind the refund policy.

Click on Open Ticket followed by Billing Department.

Ticket creation screenshot

Enter the spam bot verification and click on Open Ticket.

Keep in mind that you always have the live chat support box on the bottom right corner of the screen.

Here you can simply click on it, select either sales or support (you will be transferred if you pick wrong, so don’t worry), and enter your name while also agreeing about the rights to give access to your personal data.

screenshot of filling information in Live Chat

I received a reply within a single minute.

Anyway, I got to speak to a real person, not a bot, and they were friendly and efficient, I managed to get my refund request resolved within minutes and they even canceled my account, which was exactly what I was hoping for.

Now, I noticed that I cannot really cancel the account on my own, or remove the credit card myself, so I asked why this is the case, here is the reply I got.

conversation screenshot (reply)

Keep in mind that you will not be refunded for the setup fee, as it is clearly stated in the Terms and Conditions, just for the monthly fee of hosting your website.

Note: If you want to talk to someone on TMD Hosting’s sales team, there are toll-free numbers available on the website under the contact submenu at the bottom of the page.

Security and Backups

TMD Hosting comes with several security features in the cPanel, including IP Blocker, SSL/TLS, Manage API Tokens, Hotlink Protection, Leech Protection, SSL/TLS Status, and Let’s Encrypt SSL.

The company further allows for add-on services, such as SpamExperts. The feature provides real-time database and user synchronization, unmatched accuracy and efficiency. It protects your network from spam, viruses, ransomware, and malware attacks. Full spam and virus filtering with weekly release cycles allow you to protect your IT reputation and prevent blacklisting.

All TMDHosting Services also comes with daily backup restores performed by a specialist. More precisely, the provider maintains five copies of your web hosting database and files at all times.

Note: TMD Hosting also performs traffic and content monitoring, which is a good benefit for your security.

Specific Features of TMD Hosting

TMDHosting has a reputation for offering unique features that make it stand out from the pact of hosting providers regularly available to millions of people on a global scale.

These are the features that might give you a reason to choose using TMD hosting instead of anything else out there, and these are:

  • Free Application Installation – there are over 1300 apps that are available for installing, with a 15 minute response time and a 24/7/365 support team.
  • Free Components Installation – you can add new features as well as functionality to your website, and TMD Hosting conducts more than 11.000 installations on a monthly basis.
  • Free Template Installation – You can easily update the way your website looks as well as feels through templates, as they have a system that will install most templates.
  • Free Application Updates – You get regular updates, and in turn, you can improve the performance, security as well as features.

Now, aside from the free offerings, you need to know what you’re paying for, and I’m happy to report that you are indeed getting a lot for your money when it comes to TMD Hosting. You get faster shared hosting as well as managed WordPress Plans, with a 99.99% uptime guarantee, a free domain name, and a website transfer, as well as a drag-and-drop builder with open-source installers that range in the hundreds zone. Then you have an amazing resource allocation, with unlimited SSD space, unlimited bandwidth, and a free domain name. Keep in mind that, while it is not truly “unlimited’, and it is subject to fair use stats, it’s still proven to be a lot less aggressive in terms of limitations than its competition.

Now, another thing TMDHosting does well is the fact that it allows for a faster page loading speed, which combines caching of APC, OPCache, and Varnish, with SSDs.

Note: TMD Hosting also provides a number of open source hosting options, like PrestaShop Hosting, OpenCart Hosting, SocialEngine Hosting, Dolphin Hosting, and many others.

Summary

When it comes to TMDHosting, you get access to an affordable hosting provider that should do well for most blogs as well as eCommerce websites. They have an excellent 60-day money-back guarantee, as well as an easy signup process.

They accept many payment methods, such as credit and debit cards, bank transfers, and even PayPal; however, they do have higher renewal prices. If you sign up for a monthly plan, you also have a setup fee that you have to pay.

I’d honestly recommend this for anyone looking to host a website on a budget, as it gets the job done well. Does it offer something extremely unique that no one else does? Not really, but the support staff was friendlier than average, and it was pleasant to speak to an actual human being and not just a bot.
