Is Toucan Hosting the host for you?
By Brian Wu
Toucan Hosting is part of a group of companies that provide hosting plans and additional services to website owners. Its dedicated staff of engineers works to ensure highly reliable and secure services. The company is located in the UK and strives to provide hosting that is "all you'll ever need to host your website."
Toucan Hosting provides shared hosting plans and domain registration services to its customers. The company's primary target markets include individuals and small businesses seeking a quality hosting company with low cost plans.
Toucan Hosting provides a few shared hosting plans with many features. Customers selecting these plans from the company will enjoy unlimited bandwidth and disk space. Besides allowing customers to grow their businesses without "limits," Toucan Hosting provides customers the choice of installing popular platforms including WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal for content management; phpBB for forums; and CubeCart for ecommerce applications.
In addition to hosting plans, Toucan Hosting offers domain registration services. When a customer selects a name for their website, Toucan registers an individual or a company as the legal owner. However, customers who are concerned about privacy can elect to have their contact details hidden. Customers choosing to register a domain with Toucan Hosting have a number of choices including several top level domains.
Besides hosting and domain registration, the Toucan group of companies offer additional services including web design, graphic design, and photography. To get more information, customers should visit the respective websites linked to from Toucan Hosting's main page.
Toucan Hosting places a high importance on security. Its server security is such a priority that its IT staff make a great effort to perform regular performance and security audits as well as checks for viruses and malware. The staff also continuously examines log files to make sure no attacks have occurred and maintains a firewall to prevent attacks. Toucan Hosting's team also ensures that all web applications are updated and patched to remove vulnerabilities.
Customers can get in touch with Toucan Hosting in a number of ways to get help. They can call the main office, send an email, and submit a contact form to reach support. Though there are multiple ways to contact customer service, response times are not guaranteed.
Currently, it appears that a shopping cart is not integrated with Toucan Hosting's website. As a result, it is unknown what payment types are accepted. However, it appears that the company allows customers to pay on a monthly or yearly basis with a 3 year minimum contract for some of the plans. Customers willing to pay a certain amount upfront may be entitled to a free .co.uk domain.
Toucan Hosting began as a consulting company in the UK offering website and graphic design services. Eventually, it branched off to provide hosting and domain registration to customers wanting to build a web presence. The company provides secure and high quality hosting through its dedicated staff of IT professionals. Customers looking for a great host that does not operate on "limits" or "quotas" will find much to like about Toucan Hosting.
