The features, functions, and comparisons will be explained one by one later, but for now, let's focus on the performance of the server in relation to the price. After considering the usability, wpX Thin Rental Server wins.

Below is a detailed look at the two rental servers and a comparison of the two.

Let's start with the Thin rental servers.

What is Thin Rental Server?

With the largest market share in Japan, X server is the most popular rental server in Japan.

The operator of the server, X server.Newly started in 2021 is Thin Rent a Server.

The feature of wpX Thin Rental Server is "Fastest in Japan". Even when compared to other companies' rental servers, it boasts crisp usability and display speed.

We are the first to introduce technologies that other companies do not have, and we are also the first to add new technologies that will be introduced to X server in the future to wpX/Sin rental server.

With the stability of being run by X server and the new technology being introduced on a priority basis, wpX thin rental server is quickly gaining popularity.

What is mixhost?

One of the most popular domestic rental servers is mixhost, which has been in operation since June 2016 and is known for its speed.

After all, it is equipped with LiteSpeed Cache, a feature that allows you to display your WordPress site faster. This feature will dramatically improve your site display speed.

By the way, there are not so many rental servers in Japan where LiteSpeed Cache is available.

You can also add your own domain name as many times as you like, so you can run an unlimited number of websites under a high-spec server environment.

Hmm? Wait a minute. wpX thin rental server and mixhost both advertise "high speed display", but which one has better display speed?

I will provide a comparison and explanation.

Compare by price

First, let's compare them by price plan.

There are five pricing plans available for mixhost.

mixhost Price Plans

The image is small and hard to see, isn't it? You don't need to look at it in detail; it's enough to understand that there are five different plans.

The cheapest plan among these is the Standard. The initial cost is 0 yen, and the monthly fee is 968 yen (if you sign up for 36 months).

In contrast, the following plans are available for Shin rental servers.

There is no free trial period for mixhost. However, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee period.

This table is as of December 1, 2021. The table shows which rental server is better overall.

Overall, the performance of the wpXin rental server is higher and the price is lower.

Comparison by performance

As you can see above, it's more than just mixhost.Thin rental servers charge less for performance.It is.

mixhost also has high server performance. The performance is more than enough for running a blog or website. Also, mixhost has a WordPress speed-up feature called "LiteSpeed Cache". This feature does not exist in wpX thin rental servers.

With LiteSpeed Cache, WordPress sites running on mixhost can be displayed faster.

On the other hand, wpX Thin Server also has a speed-up feature: X-Accelerator Ver.2. This feature allows you to stabilize & speed up your site.

In addition to the above, this is the fastest rental server in Japan by actively incorporating the latest technology that does not exist in other companies' servers.

Both are fast. However, from my experience using both, I feel that wpX thin rental server is faster.

In fact, the LiteSpeed Cache speed-up function is installed in mixhost, but when I turned on all the settings of this function and used it fully, the whole layout of the site was broken. (It is "a certain thing" that the layout collapses due to a setting error in LiteSpeed Cache)

That's why we couldn't increase the display speed to the limit on mixihost. That's one of the reasons.

By the way, I have not had a single problem with the site layout collapsing on the wpX thin rental server while speeding up the site.

Now, we have compared the performance of mixhost and Shin rental servers.

The wpX Thin Rental Server is by far the best in terms of cost performance. The price is low and the performance is high.

Compare the ease of use of the management screen

Next, we compare the ease of use of mixhost and Shin rental servers.

Compare the administration pages. This is the page most used by site administrators.

First of all, mixhost uses an application called cPanel for the administration screen. You do not need to remember the name cPanel.

mixhost cPanel

In short, using this application makes mixihost a "very versatile" management screen.

For those who are familiar with cPanel, it may be obvious. But for beginners, the admin panel is complicated.

"Huh, where do I set up my WordPress installation?" "Hotlink protection, Zone Editor, phpMyAdmin, what's that?"

It's confusing to use. It took me half a year to get used to the mixhost admin panel.

In contrast, the wpX Thin Rental Server has the following administration screen.

Thin Rental Server Administration Screen

The design of the administration screen is not modern, and it looks a little old-fashioned. However, it is much easier to understand than mixhost. Even a beginner can understand at a glance where to make settings.

In October 2021 I moved from mixhost to wpX thin rental server and I was again impressed by the ease of viewing this admin panel. Too easy to use.

From a beginner's point of view, the admin panel is easier to use on the wpX thin rental server.

Compare by support system

Next, compare the support system.

First, at Thin Rent a Server,

  • Phone Support
  • Email Support

Two types of support are available. Phone calls are accepted from 10:00 to 18:00 on weekdays. Email support can be sent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There is no phone support available for mixhost support. However, when I have used mixhost support in the past, I have received prompt and courteous email replies. However, when I have used their support in the past, I have received prompt and courteous email replies, so I have never had a bad impression of their support.

However, if you are looking for the best support system, wpX Thin Rental Server with its many support options is a safe choice. After all, in an emergency, it is much safer to be able to ask questions over the phone than by email.

Comparison based on past results

Let's take a look at what we have done so far.

When did you start using mixhost?

First of all, mixhost was launched in June 2016. wpX thin rental server was launched in 2021. The one with the longest operating history is mixhost.

Also, on mixhost, the

  • No.1 in satisfaction with access processing speed
  • No.1 in satisfaction with display speed
  • NO.1 in affiliate and blogger satisfaction

They have received three No. 1 satisfaction ratings from the Japan Marketing Research Institute.

On the other hand, the track record of the wpX thin rental server is still small. However, if you look at the track record of X server, the operator of wpX thin rental server, it can be said that it is better than mixhost.

X server results

The above are the results of the X server, which is the operating base of the wpX thin rental server.

It has been in operation for 18 years, and is currently the No. 1 rental server in Japan with a market share of over 2 million websites.

The reason why I feel comfortable using wpX Thin Rental Server is because the company that runs it has produced a lot of results in the past. This is not a rental server that was launched in 2021 by a company whose name I don't even know.

In terms of simple performance, mixhost is better. However, if you include the operational track record of the operator, you will find that you can use the wpX thin rental server with confidence.
