Flummoxed with the negative reviews of TSO Host.

I'm going to quick with my comment. All these negative reviews about TSO Host make no sense, whatsoever. Either they are bot related or the people using the (TSO Host) service are two sandwiches short of a picnic. Either way, some...Read More

What a twit. I'm a sandwich short of a picnic; interesting. I'm also a devops engineer with 35+ years IT experience; as a programmer, network engineer, SA, architect (of sorts), and I think that TSO are useless. The live supp...Read More

Awful Service

To be AVOIDED!

I have no idea how these crooks get so many good reviews on other review sites, must be a Russian sweat shop job. They have been blacklisted by Microsoft and several other providers for failing to manage SPAM, sent from their doma...Read More

Expert Overview

Well established UK hosting company

TSOHost is a UK based hosting company that is a member of the Paragon Internet Group, which owns several other hosting companies too.  Established in 2003, they have plenty of experience and have been able to keep up with the changing technologies in the web hosting industry.  They are a mid-sized hosting company, with about 150,000 sites on their servers.

They have a wide range of hosting packages to choose from including shared, VPS, dedicated and a custom cloud hosting service they call ‘complex hosting.’  Each of these options will allow you to choose the right set of features for your specific site needs.

They don’t offer any unlimited plans, but the resources at each price point are going to be more than enough for most typical websites.

Uptime & Reliability

Nice uptime guarantees with generous refunds for failing to meet SLAs

Most of the plans on this host provide a 99.9% uptime guarantee, and if they miss this target you will get a free week of service.  When you go up to dedicated server plans or other high end plan options, the guarantee goes up to 99.95%.

They also offer a four hour hardware replacement guarantee for their higher end hosting packages (specifically the dedicated servers and complex hosting options).  This is especially important for the dedicated servers where hardware failures can cause downtime.

All the servers are housed in a modern data center with physical security, redundant power options and many other great features.

Features

Nice features at every price point

They have a lot of different hosting packages to choose from, which can get a bit overwhelming for those who aren’t sure what they need.  That being said, however, they do have something for everyone.  Their four shared hosting packages allow you to choose between Linux or Windows (except the lowest package, which is Linux only).

They do have a reseller option, but unlike most other hosts, it isn’t its own package.  Instead it is just an option that can be added on to the cloud hosting plan (for an extra fee).  This will allow you to perform all the typically reselling options.  This is still not an unlimited plan, however, so you’ll need to keep an eye on the resources used by any customers.

Finally, they have a ‘complex hosting’ package that allows you to create a private cloud hosting solution that is set up specifically for your needs.  This is a nice option for those who are using their site for things like eCommerce or other very specific things.

Support

Limited phone support but fast responses 24/7

The phone support is only available 9AM-11PM GMT, which can be a concern for people who like to be able to call in with issues.  They do have a nice ticketing system that is monitored 24/7 and typically provide a very fast response time.  Their tech support teams have backup hardware for all their equipment so they can fix any of these issues right away.

Pricing

Average prices at every hosting package

There is really not much to say about their pricing other than you will be getting what you pay for (and maybe a little more).  They start out with a low cost entry level option and it moves up incrementally from there all the way to their dedicated or complex hosting packages.  There aren’t really any great deals, but you also aren’t going to feel like you’re over paying.

Summary

Excellent hosting for any UK website

Overall there is not too much bad that can be said of this hosting company.  They have nice, reliable services that will allow you to get up and running quickly and then keep your site up long into the future.  They also have great features for all types of websites.

Pros:

  • Great uptime guarantees
  • Wide range of great hosting packages
  • Support teams are located in the UK

Cons:

  • Telephone tech support is limited to 9AM-11PM GMT
  • Number of hosting packages may be confusing to newer webmasters
