HostYim is a web hosting company based in Thailand. Ranked in the 28th position among the largest hosting companies in Thailand by a market share of 0.03%, this vendor’s hosting solutions seem to have captured the attention of many enterprises in the Thai market.

Overview

HostYim

HostYim is a Thai web hosting company that has been in the web hosting industry for quite a while now. It specializes in offering online services that run on cloud nodes with Proxmox virtualization to optimize the quality of its services.

Some of its web hosting solutions include shared web hosting, dedicated servers, VPS servers, and colocation services as well as other internet services such as radio streaming and VoIP services. The HostYim website is only available in Thai.

Features and Ease of Use

HostYim web hosting plans incorporate the following standard features:

  • Softaculous one-click installer
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • 99.9% stability guaranteed
  • Unlimited monthly bandwidth
  • DirectAdmin control panel
  • IP addresses

HostYim servers are hosted in the CAT internet data center located in Bangkok, Thailand. The data center is connected with Gigabit network connections with high bandwidth to give users’ websites the ability to load quickly, regardless of the location of their businesses.

HostYim hosting services are run on cloud nodes with the Proxmox virtualization platform that helps users manage several virtualization technologies for better utilization of server resources. This should allow for high-performance servers. On the contrary, though, the vendor’s hosting servers fail intermittently without explanation, frustrating most of its customers. 

Moreover, although the vendor advertises its plans with weekly and monthly automatic backups, the reality proves otherwise. Customers have expressed their frustrations citing that its backup systems are flawed and don’t seem to work. This, in return, has led to customers questioning how reliable its hosting services are.

Its shared hosting services, however, are divided into four plans: Starter Pack, Standard Park, Business Park, and Enterprise Park. The hosting plans are designed to host up to eight websites.

Pricing and Support

HostYim web hosting solutions are, perhaps. some of the cheapest in the Thai market. Yet, the hosting plans are only billed annually. After signing up for its solutions, customers get to start using their websites within an average time of 15 to 30 minutes. Prices are listed in Thai baht.

HostYim claims to provide web hosting systems that offer an uptime guarantee of 99.9%. In addition, the hosting company offers a refund policy of up to a seven-day money-back guarantee.

HostYim

HostYim customer support is available via telephone, email, or through a contact form. While the vendor claims to offer 24/7 customer support, the support service is quite poor and its technical staff barely responds to their customer’s inquiries. My email to them was left unanswered. 

HostYim does not seem to have a ticketing system or live chat support. Also, the vendor has a very limited knowledge base.

Bottom line on HostYim

HostYim seems to have started its journey out well and was quite reliable for a long time, until recently ( just under a year ago), when the vendor started experiencing setbacks that to date remain unresolved; from server failures to flawed backup systems and unresponsive customer support. Individuals and companies in Thailand should be warned to proceed with caution.

Pros

  • Data center connected to Gigabit network with high bandwidth
  • Solutions run on cloud nodes with Proxmox virtualization
  • Fast account setup after signup
  • Uptime network  guarantee of 99.9%

Cons

  • Servers fail intermittently without explanation
  • Unresponsive and poor customer service

Try hosting with a Thai vendor that offers high bandwidth from HostYim.
