Targethost Review and Interview
Targethost is a hosting solutions company with a lot to offer. Choose from a variety of different servers and a multitude of hosting and domain solutions. Web hosting prices are also exceptionally low and great value for your money.
The CEO of Targethost, Elton Aquino, was kind enough to answer some questions that I had about the company.
A Long History In The Industry
Targethost has been around for 16 years, serving the hosting needs of its customers. Starting out as a simple cPanel web hosting provider, the business has grown considerably to include many more hosting and server solutions to meet the needs of a wider range of customers. Elton explained more about Targethost’s inception and growth:
“TargetHost is 16 years old. We started with cpanel web hosting plans. Now we have a full range of web hosting products and clients in different continents”.
Providing Excellent Customer Care
Elton considers the Targethost’s customer support to be one of its greatest strengths, along with its embedded technology. The team takes a proactive approach with their ticketing system to ensure they respond to enquiries quickly and efficiently. Elton had this to say about Targethost’s customer care:
“We do our best for every client. We have different support channels including whatsapp, skype and tickets. Our feedback system ensures we have always a proactive customer service and top quality support”.
Elton continued to tell me what he is most proud of about Targethost:
“We are very proud of our feedback ratings that have always been on the top tier”.
Additionally, in Targethost’s knowledgebase, you will find answers to loads of questions as well as resolutions to many issues, both technical and otherwise. Types of articles include accessing cPanel, creating an email redirect, how to enable MySQL cache, and how to search files on Linux, plus many, many more.
It’s clear to me that the Targethost team have gone to great lengths to share their knowledge with customers. Providing an extensive knowledgebase with a wide variety of useful articles can only serve to make customers’ lives easier.
Hosting Services From Targethost
Targethost has lots of great hosting options to choose from, its most popular being their “ASP.NET plan with Windows Server 2019 and Plesk”.
Targethost’s ASP.NET hosting plans begin at R$ 9.97 per month for the Lite.Net plan when paid triennially. However, the team understands that paying such a large sum upfront will not be convenient for everyone so have also provided options for paying per month, quarter, semester, year, and two years. Therefore, there is an option to suit everyone and every budget.
The Lite.Net plan is a real bargain. Customers will benefit from a range of features and inclusions like:
- 99.99% SLA guarantee
- Web application firewall
- Unlimited traffic
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited email redirects
- 25GB SSD space
- 5 MySQL databases
Customers will also enjoy access to a website builder, a free SSL certificate, a virtual store and a domain name.
Targethost’s website hosting packages are ultra-affordable and include a domain name and an SSL certificate. Paid monthly, prices begin at R$ 19.99, which is currently around £2.77. This plan has a lot of “unlimited” inclusions like bandwidth, traffic, disk space, and MySQL databases.
Customers will gain access to MagicSpam, an anti-spam email filter which sifts through your junk and spam, removing it before it even reaches your inbox.
Furthermore, Targethost makes use of LiteSpeed technology, delivering a faster and more reliable hosting experience.
As WordPress is the world’s most popular CMS, Targethost naturally provides all-important WordPress hosting solutions. Prices are the same as the company’s web hosting plans, as are most of the inclusions. However there are, of course, some key differences between the standard web hosting plans and the WordPress hosting plans.
One obvious difference being that WordPress hosting customers have access to a huge selection of themes and plugins that WordPress has to offer. Additionally, WordPress is well-known for its ease of use and simplicity, as well as facilitating complex tasks. This makes it a great choice for both newbies and experts alike.
If you’re looking for the best website builder for creating a professional and responsive website, Targethost’s website builder may be the one for you. The company makes use of Presence Builder. This is a comprehensive and feature-rich tool that requires no coding or design skills to use. Simply select from the range of templates available and add to and edit it as you require.
Looking To 2021
Targethost has some plans in the making. Elton told me:
“Yes, we have a lot of plans for 2021, that will be a great year for all the industry. In the first quarter a new web hosting product will be released”.
I’m looking forward to seeing what this new web hosting product will be!
To conclude, I think that Targethost has all you need for getting your business online, from simple domain registration and hosting, to a feature-packed website builder. The prices are exceptionally low and make every single one of Targethost’s solutions really great value.
Lastly, thank you to Elton for taking the time to answer my questions!
