Tsohost is another great hosting solution that you can use for your UK based web projects. Check the results from the tests we made in the review below.
Super fast - we have pinged their server located in London Docklands from Manchester with check-host and the result was only 7.7 which makes it the fastest from the services we have tested. So if its to the server waiting time, your content will be seen instantly from your UK visitors. Tsohost servers are with 99,99% uptime and they upgrade their hardware frequently so your site will be accessible 24/7.
Support - Even if you got some technical issue, Tsohost have a friendly inhouse tech support team. All their support is based in Slough, UK. You can reach a highly technical (English speaking) human being, 365 days a year by email or from 9AM to Midnight by phone. That is one of the reasons Tsohost made it to the top 5 of our list. Because when you host a website, there are always technical issues and its great when there is someone to fix it tight away.
Flexible - We love about Tsohost that even their cheapest plans are very flexible and give you the freedom to launch your site without problems. They offer free migration from your current hosting provider, 2,5GB of space and 20GB of bandwidth which will be more than enough for your site or blog to hale more than 10000 visits per month. You have up to 4 domains and 5 databases, so you can make use of their 1 click apps - Wordpress, Joomla, Magento, PrestaShop. You can choose between Windows and Linux servers. We recommend CentOS with Cpanel. Anything that you need to get you started. And you get free daily backups in case something goes wrong.
All that comes at 2,99 pounds per month. To be even more secure in your purchase, they offer you a trial period of 60 days money back guarantee. This way you can test the service and the support and know that you are making the right decision for your web project.

It is a shame that once such a friendly hosting company could allow itself to drop to sub-standard. This review permits a minimum score of zero. I feel this is not representative of TSO as they have plummeted to below zero. Our business has suffered terribly due to TSO and I would sincerely request anyone looking for hosting to look elsewhere.
It is my fervent hope that the previous TSO owners and staff read these comments and see what has happened to all their hard work.

Since November 2018, we have found TSO Host UK's performance to have deteriorated to an unacceptable level with slow or no response from their Technical Support team by telephone or via Live Chat.
Regrettably, TSO Host UK is not to be recommended.

Such a good service previously now very very poor, i'm afraid i can no longer continue with these issues.
- 10/10User Friendly
My sites have been down for almost a month now and still no resolution in site.
I would not recommend this hosting company, even to my worst enemy.

I would avoid TSO...they are not what they used to be
they moved us too the cloud and screwed that up, site was not displaying correctly, they fixed it but with everything happening didnt fill me with joy and trust, especially as one staff member said "we arent PHP orientated"
- 5/10User Friendly
Our sites have been down for almost three days and there is no fix in sight.
When we finally get any kind of response from them - 12 hours later it does not help.
I don't care what the problem is with equipment, I pay for hosting of my domains and a 99.9% uptime promise. Get it fixed and start to show you care.
