Based in India, with offices in both India and the US, TheHosting4U is a web hosting company that’s owned by Fecund Technologies and was founded nearly 20 years ago. Today, it specializes in shared hosting, VPS hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration. Its data centers are in the US.
Although the website is well designed, information on the site is limited. The website is available in English only and all prices are displayed in US dollars.
Features and Ease of Use
TheHosting4U offers three shared hosting plans — Starter, Basic, and Business — which vary mainly in storage space, monthly bandwidth, email accounts, FTP accounts, and subdomains:
- The Starter plan includes 1 hosted website, 100 MB of storage, 1 GB of bandwidth, 3 email accounts, 1 FTP account, 2 subdomains, no SQL databases, and 1 MySQL database.
- The Basic plan includes 1 hosted website, 250 MB of storage, 2.5 GB of bandwidth, 10 email accounts, 15 FTP accounts, 5 subdomains, 1 SQL database, and 1 MySQL database.
- The Business plan includes 2 hosted websites, 1 GB of storage, 10 GB of bandwidth, 25 email accounts, 40 FTP accounts, 10 subdomains, 2 SQL databases, and 2 MySQL databases.
All plans come with the following features as standard:
- Free SSL certificate
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Windows server
- Classic ASP supported
- .NET Framework
I’m not impressed by TheHosting4U’s limited set of features and low disk space, which is just enough for beginners but not for professionals or bloggers who want to upload videos or large images.
Want to scale up? You can go with one of TheHosting4U’s five VPS hosting options — Basic, Starter, Enterprise, Premium Business, and Premium Pro. The storage space ranges between 40 GB and 160 GB, and you can get monthly bandwidth from 400 GB to 2000 GB.
It has the same standard features as the shared hosting plans, including the 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
In my opinion, TheHosting4U’s prices are very affordable, but given its bare-bones features, it isn’t a good value for money.
You can choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually, and you can pay via PayPal or 2CheckOut. All services are backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Contacting customer support can be done through live chat, email, phone, and support ticket. However, live chat is rarely available. I tried both email and support ticket, but it’s been over a week and still no answer.
