I myself have been using mixihost from 2018 to 2021, and I am currently using Thin Rentals Server.
Therefore, as an actual user, I will explain the usability in detail. I hope this will be helpful to those who are currently deciding between Mixhost and Thin Server.

The features, functions, and comparisons will be explained one by one later, but the performance of the server relative to the price, the so-called "cost performance", is the winner. After considering the usability, Thin Server wins.
Below is a detailed look at the two rental servers and a comparison of the two.
Let's start by looking at the thin rental server.
What is Shin Rentalserver?
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 the Thin Server Rental.
Shin Rental Server is the fastest server in Japan. It is the fastest server in Japan.
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.
With the stability of being run by X server and the new technology introduced on a priority basis, Thin 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. Both thin rental server and mixhost advertise "high speed display", but which one has the 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.
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 Thin Server rental plans are as follows.
|Term of use||basic||standard||Premium||Business|
|3 months||990 yen||1,980 yen||3,960 yen||7,920 yen|
|6 months||990 yen||1,980 yen||3,960 yen||7,920 yen|
|12 months||880 yen||1,780 yen||3,560 yen||7,120 yen|
|24 months||825 yen||1,650 yen||3,300 yen||6,600 yen|
|36 months||770 yen||1,540 yen||3,080 yen||6,160 yen|
There are four plans available. The cheapest plan is Basic. It has an initial fee of 0 yen and a monthly fee of 770 yen (if you sign up for 36 months).
Here is a comparison of the price and performance of mixhost and thin rental servers.
|Features||mixhost||Thin Server Rental|
|Initial cost||0 yen||0 yen|
|Monthly fee||968 yen||770 yen|
|CPU||Virtual 4-core||Virtual 6-core|
|Approximate Transfer Volume||18TB||27TB (monthly conversion)|
|Free Trial Period||None||10 days|
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 Thin Server is higher and the price is lower.
Comparison by performance
As you can see above, it's more than just mixhost.Thin servers are cheaper for their 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 is not available on Thin Server.
With LiteSpeed Cache, WordPress sites running on mixhost can be displayed faster.
On the other hand, Thin Server also has a speed-up feature: X-Accelerator Ver.2. X-accelerator Ver.2 is implemented 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 Thin 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've never had any trouble with the site layout collapsing on Thin Server, despite the high speed.
Now, we have compared the performance of mixhost and thin rental server.
Thin 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 will compare the ease of use of mixhost and thin rental server.
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.
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.
On the other hand, Thin Server has the following 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 thin rental server and I was again impressed by the ease of use of this admin panel. Too easy to use.
From a beginner's point of view, the admin panel is easier to use with Thin Server.
Compare by support system
Next, compare the support system.
First of all, Thin Server is a
- 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, you should consider Thin Server, which has many support options. In case of emergency, it is better 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.
First of all, mixihost was launched in June 2016. 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 Shin Rental Server is still small. However, if you look at the track record of X server, the operator of Shin Rental Server, it can be said that it is more than mixhost.
The above are the results of X server, which is the operating base of Shin 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 so comfortable with Shin Rental Server is because the company that runs it has produced many successful results in the past. It's not a rental server 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 Shin Rental Server with confidence.
[Summary] Which is better, thin rental server or mixhost?

Overall, I'd say.Thin Server RentalIt is a "win" for
Both are excellent domestic rental servers. If you are a beginner starting a WordPress blog, there is no problem choosing either one.
I use both of them, and they both allow you to install WordPress easily, so you won't get lost in the usage.
However, in terms of cost (price and performance) and ease of use, Thin Server is superior.
I personally recommend Thin Server. I've actually used it and can attest to that. I also use Thin Server for this site.
