Maybe you have never heard of this one web hosting. Although their ads are not as bright as other large web hosting company, TMDHosting has been playing for a long time in this field, namely since 2007.
Founded by Peter Darazhanski, TMDHosting is a non-EIG web hosting company. This is good news for those who are allergic to EIG hosting.
For those who don’t understand, EIG is a large company that buys dozens of different web hosting services. And unfortunately when web hosting was purchased by EIG, their quality usually became much reduced.
TMDHosting itself has several very interesting shared hosting packages. Like what? Please continue reading.
TMDHosting uses the same data center as Fastcomet, which is SingleHop. By using SingleHop data center, TMDHosting can offer a large selection of server locations, one of which is Singapore.
TMDHosting says that their servers are minimal with 64GB DDR 4 Ecc specifications, with a Supermicro server.
It’s not very detailed, there is no information on the type of processor and the like but that’s all they mentioned.
But because using SingleHop, for server performance, it should be very good.
Pros of Using TMDHosting
1.# Fast and stable
In terms of performance and stability (uptime), based on various independent tests that I have examined, TMDHosting has good stability. The average uptime is above 99%, and can also be up to 100% per month.
With the use of SSDs and cache features available on all packages, TMDHosting’s performance is very good even on the cheapest package. In addition, TMDHosting has a special page for checking server status and maintenance schedules. Very easy for users.
2.# There is no price trap
The price of the subscription at TMDHosting is the same, both for the first payment or extension.
To attract customers, most web hosting offers low prices at the beginning, and goes up a long way when extended. It’s good that TMDHosting doesn’t do that.
3.# Many server location choices
As mentioned above, with TMDHosting you have the freedom to choose a server location. There are 7 server location choices. Whether it’s in the Americas, Europe or Asia.
4.# Complete hosting package
With TMDHosting you have many upgrade options, from of course shared hosting, cloud hosting, VPS to dedicated servers.
Cons of Using TMDHosting
1.# Confusing about uptime guarantee
TMDHosting previously offered a 99.99% uptime guarantee, but when this review was written TMDHosting removed the writing, and I think it is better that they should not offer an uptime guarantee.
Not because of TMDHosting’s poor performance, quite the contrary, TMDHosting’s performance is very good, but because the conditions for uptime credit claims are very, very, very complicated.
First, you have to be a customer for at least 1 year, meaning you have to wait 1 year to get the claim right. Not for long?
Second, too much except. TMDHosting will give credit for downtime, except for those caused by blackouts, natural disasters, and many others, including those caused by God’s will, seriously they write, acts of God.
So many “exceptions” to make me confused, which version of downtime can you claim?
I don’t know, my advice is to forget TMDHosting uptime guarantee, let’s just say they don’t have an uptime guarantee.
2.# Monthly prices are far different
If you subscribe for at least 1 year, the monthly price of TMDHosting is $ 3.95, including cheap indeed, but if you are determined to subscribe to 1 month, the price jumps far to $ 8.85.
The price of $ 8.85 is not yet included in the expensive category, because there are many other web hosting in that price range. But when compared to the annual subscription, the price is too far behind.
On the purchase page, TMDHosting offers several upsell, and most of the upsell that is displayed is not useful for you, or you can do it yourself easily, such as submit sitemap.
- Unlimited : Unlimited bandwidth and capacity storage.
- Control Panel : cPanel.

TMDHosting’s main strength lies in its fast and stable performance and a large selection of server locations, including Singapore. Keep in mind, cheap prices are only if you subscribe for a year, for monthly prices, the cost goes far.
