Myhosting is a web hosting company based in Canada. It was started in 1997 and still continues on as one of the popular web hosting providers. Their main focus is to provide an affordable webhosting which is suitable for personal and small scale business websites. They offer web hosting in three different plans which are personal, business and ecommerce. They have plans suitable for everyone and have a simple website that is easy to navigate. The parent company of Myhosting is Softcom Technology which is based in Toronto providing the servers required for the hosting service.

Myhosting’s best features are the customizability and the variety of hosting plans available for different kinds of users. They provide a site builder tool which is very helpful in creating websites from templates for beginners to start with. The basic personal website plan runs on Linux while the business and ecommerce are run on Windows 2008 platform for advanced features. They offer unlimited bandwidth and unlimited disk space in every plan which of course is limited by fair usage terms. MySQL database numbers vary according to the hosting plan and they provide a dedicated IP address with business and ecommerce plans. Applications like Joomla, Opencart and others can be easily installed in to the website. They also provide Yahoo or Bing advertising vouchers in every plan which can help one get started with marketing your website.

The negative aspects are the uptime of the servers and the customer support provided by the company. Many customers have complained to have experienced unscheduled maintenance errors during which the server was down. The uptime does not really stand up to the price and Myhosting is not so reliable for high demand applications. Also, support team is inexperienced and has very little technical knowledge. The spam filters are not at all effective and therefore the email ids registered with Myhosting receive a lot of spam mails.

The final verdict is that Myhosting is a good webhost if someone is looking for a cheap and affordable webhost to start with. In the long run, Myhosting is not recommended as their servers are unstable and are not suitable for high resource requiring websites. Small business owners and individuals can however give a try as they do not require a lot of resources.
