[2022] An in-depth look at the features, reputation, and ease of use of thin rental servers

Even though it just came out in 2021, Thin Server is already seeing a rush of people moving from other servers.

As a matter of fact, we have started using Thin Server for our website.I'll give you a real explanation as a user.

In this article, I will explain in detail about the awesome features of Thin Client Server and why you should use Thin Client Server instead of other rental servers.

To make a short conclusion first, if you are running a WordPress site and are looking for a fast, stable and affordable rental server in Japan, you can useThin Server Rental I'm sure it is.

So, let's take a look at it.

Basic information about Shin Rental Server

Shin Rental Server Reputation

With more than 2 million sites in operation, X server has the largest market share in Japan.

The operator of the server, X server Corporation, has launched a new product calledThin Server RentalI'm sorry.

In three simple lines, this thin rental server can be described as

  • Fastest in Japan
  • State-of-the-art technology
  • Stable operation at all times

Simply put, the site display speed is the fastest in Japan.

This is due to the fact that we are one of the first to introduce technology that makes our sites super fast, faster than other companies' rental servers.

There are many people who have had trouble with slow display speed of their WordPress sites.

If you want your site to display at high speed, but with a sense of stability, Thin Server is the answer.

Why I moved to Shin Rental Server

As I mentioned at the beginning of the article.The author also uses Thin Server.

From 2018 to October 2021, I was using mixhost (another company's rental server).

mixhost also has high server performance and reasonable prices. However, the administration panel (e-panel) was difficult to see and I often felt it was difficult to use. There were also many problems...

I decided to move to Thin Server because my contract was about to expire.

In addition to the good reputation and word-of-mouth, I had been using X server and wpX since 2014, so I was confident that I could manage my website here with peace of mind.

That's why I started using Thin Server for rent in mid-October 2021.

After about two weeks, I can now see the pros and cons, and I can honestly tell you if you are not sure if you want to use Thin Server.

Strengths/Merits of Shin Rental Server

Now, let me explain the advantages of using Thin Server.

In fact, it has introduced new features that do not exist in other rental servers. I'll explain about them here as well.

Fast servers (fastest in Japan)

First of all, the biggest attraction of wpX Thin Rental Server is that it is the fastest in Japan.

The site runs crisply. If you have a poor rental server, your site will run sluggishly.

However, on the wpX Thin rental server, WordPress sites run at high speed.

It is also faster than X server, which was reputed to have "explosively fast site display speed".

The reason for this is that wpX Thin Rental Server is ahead of the curve in implementing the latest technology.

By forming a technical alliance with Prime Strategy, which is famous for "KUSANAGI" that runs WordPress sites at super high speed, we are introducing the latest technology to wpX Thin Rental Server one after another.

As a result, we are able to display faster than other companies.

Implementing the latest technology not available in X server

The X server has the number one market share in Japan. It was originally a rental server with a good reputation.

What is the difference between the new wpX thin rental server and the X server?

Simple as that.

  • Stability = X server
  • Innovation=wpX Thin Rental Server

This is the difference. wpX Thin Rental Server is the first to add the new technology that will be introduced to X server in the future.

This means that you can always run your website on a new-age server that incorporates the latest technology.

You may feel uneasy here.

"What, are you okay with all this new technology?"

This is also not a problem. I will also explain why.

Excellent security measures

With all the new technologies being introduced, is wpX Thin Rental Server safe?

You can also rest assured about that. This is because it is operated by X server, which has the No.1 market share in Japan.

Because we have managed over 2 million sites, we do not introduce technologies that we are not sure will fail.

New technologies are being introduced after verifying their effectiveness and safety.

"No, but still..."

You may be worried about this, but by implementing the WAF function against unauthorized access and malware intrusion, you are always protected from external attacks.

To further ensure that nothing goes wrong, we have installed SECOM's security assessment service. The network is rigorously checked for vulnerabilities on a regular basis.

Besides, wpX Thin Rental Server also provides 24/7 email and phone support.

Phone support is not available on weekends and holidays, but for email support, you will always receive a reply from the support staff within 24 hours.

I myself have used X server and the old wpX, and I have never once felt insecure about the safety.

Outstanding stability (strict control of CPU and memory)

Thin Server is a very stable server, which is ideal for running a website. The reasons are"Because it doesn't affect other users."It is.

First, let me briefly explain about rental servers. There are two types of rental servers.

  • Shared server: cheaper, one server shared with other users
  • Dedicated server: expensive, exclusive use of one server by you

This is the difference. There is no difficult explanation.

The advantage of shared servers is that they are inexpensive. However, a single server is used by multiple users. It's like a shared house.

One common problem is that other users' sites are flooded with access, and as a result, the server is overwhelmed, which in turn affects your own site.

(A common problem is that the speed of your site slows down or you cannot access the site.)

No need to worry about Thin Clients.Since each user is ensured that he or she is allowed to use only thisIt is.

There is no danger of your site being damaged because of a few users.

Even the cheapest basic plan of Thin Server has sufficient performance.

  • CPU: virtual 6 cores
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Capacity: 300GB

To put it bluntly, the performance is "more than enough" for normal use such as running a WordPress blog or building a website.

I'm also using the basic plan, and it's crisp without any inconvenience.

There is a bag-up function for peace of mind.

Next, I will explain the backup function.

Imagine if your site data were to disappear.

It would be a desperate situation if the site data you have been running disappeared.

We all run the risk of losing or corrupting data on our sites, and I've had my share of touching up WordPress internals and losing access to my site.

But with Thin Server, you don't have to worry about that.It comes with a backup function.

You don't have to worry about any problems that may occur with your site. Just click a button and the original site data will be returned to you.

Shin Rental Server Backup

There are two types of backups available.

  • Automatic backup
  • Manual backup

Automatic Backup, as the name suggests, automatically creates a backup of your site at regular intervals.

The backup data will never overwhelm your server. Don't worry, it won't slow down your site.

You can also create a manual backup each time. It's a good idea to create a manual backup for detailed internal settings of your site.

Price is too low for high specs.

So much high functionality.... Isn't the price perhaps too high?

No. wpX Thin Server's pricing plans are very affordable. We have prepared a comparison chart with other companies. Please check it out.

In case you are wondering, the above servers do exist. You can actually compare them and see for yourself. They are surprisingly affordable.

Even with the cheapest plan, you can run your website on a server with such high specifications.

And that's not all.

As of 2021, if you sign up for a wpX Thin rental server, you can get a "free permanent domain name".

Usually, you have to sign up for a domain name separately from the server fee. In other words, there is a separate fee.

However, wpX Thin Rental Server gives you one free domain if you choose the one you like.

And it's free forever, for as long as you have a server contract. That's a lot of money.

Easy to understand management screen

The admin panel of Thin Rental Server is the same design as that of X server.

Although it looks a bit old-fashioned, this admin panel is still the easiest to use.

Shin Rental Server admin panel X server

You don't have to scroll down to see what settings are available at a glance.

As a comparison, here is what the administration screen of mixhost looks like.

mixhost cpanel admin panel
Sometimes mixhosts get lost in what's where...

This is not because mixhost is bad, but because it uses a control panel called cPanel.

Therefore, there is no way around it, but when it comes to visibility, Thin Server is still superior.

Free SSL & easy to set up

SSL is an important way to protect information by encrypting the communication between a website and its visitors.

If you enter your credit card number on an unencrypted site, there is a possibility that your card information could be stolen by a malicious third party.

If it's a mail order site, the information is exposed to the customer's address and even phone number. Without encryption, the information is open to theft.

The SSL setting encrypts the information of the site and its visitors. This eliminates the risk of a third party snooping on your communications.

But how to set up this SSL seems to be difficult, doesn't it?

But don't worry. With Shin Rental Server, you can easily set up SSL. It is also free of charge with no additional cost.

See below.

Shin Rental Server SSL

Just click one button to complete the SSL conversion of your site.

This will allow visitors to browse your site with confidence.

Easy to install WordPress

The wpX Thin Rental Server makes it easy to install WordPress. Once you have chosen where you want to install it, all you have to do is fill in a few simple fields.

There is no need to create your own database and set up WordPress with FTP software.

You can easily install WordPress in about 30 seconds.

By the way, after installation, your WordPress site will be secured.

The system is quite heavily secured to prevent unauthorized access from overseas and malware intrusion.

By using wpX Thin Rental Server, you can use it with peace of mind from WordPress installation to management.

Operation of adult sites (R18) is OK.

If you are looking for a rental server with adult OK, Shin Rental Server is a good choice. We have actually checked, and you can run an adult website on Thin Server.

The reason for this is that access can be concentrated at certain times of the day and the load can be heavy. In addition, there are legal risks associated with some sites, which is why there have been more adult NG rental servers in the past.

Even if the server is adult friendly, it can be expensive, making it difficult to choose the right server for you. However, Thin Server is different.

You can run a stable adult website on the fastest server in Japan at an extremely affordable price.

If you are looking for a rental server that allows adult users, I recommend Shin Rental Server.

WordPress sites are easy to move.

Originally, I was running my site on mixihost, and the "WordPress site moving feature" was the deciding factor for me to choose Shin Rental Server.

See the image below.

Shin Rental Server's "WordPress Easy onwards".

It's easy to move your WordPress site. All you have to do is enter the source URL, your WordPress login information, and the destination URL, and click the button. Then just wait a few minutes and your site will be migrated to the thin rental server.

There is no downtime as the site move is completed in a few minutes. There is not a single complicated task. If you are currently using another rental server and want to move your WordPress site, I recommend Thin Rentals. It's easy.

Even if you are a beginner, you can never go wrong with moving.

Weaknesses and disadvantages

There are some disadvantages/disadvantages of thin rental servers that are not discussed in the reviews and reviews on other sites.

The disadvantage of thin rental servers is the "name".It is.

The name "X server" was easy to understand, and the name "wpX" was simple and nice. However, over the years, the series started to grow.

  • X server
  • wpX Cloud (no longer available in 2019)
  • wpX Speed
  • wpX Blog

And in 2021, thin rental servers will be available. It's hard to tell the difference...

This naming and feature difference can be confusing. At first I was also confused between wpX Speed and Thin Rental Server.

If you're not sure what to do, just use Thin Server.

Price Plans and Pricing for Thin Server Rental

Term of usebasicstandardPremiumBusiness

There are five pricing plans. In the table above, the more you move to the right, the higher the price plan is. The higher the price, the higher the price.

Specifically, CPU, memory, and disk space (SSD) are different. However, I will not go into the details of performance. This is because the performance of the basic plan is sufficient for most of the people who will be reading this article. In fact, the basic plan runs the website quite fast. By the way, this site also uses the basic plan.

The basic plan is sufficient for general use, such as "I want to make a blog with WordPress and monetize it. You should not feel any dissatisfaction.

Until January 13, 2022! 30% off fee campaign

Shin Rental Server is currently running a 30% off campaign.

You can use Thin Server for only 30% off in real terms.

For example, if you sign up for the Basic Plan for 36 months, the monthly fee will be 539 yen (including tax). It is surprisingly cheap.

This campaign will run until January 13, 2022.

>> Sign up for 30% off

By the way, I paid for the basic plan 36 months in advance. In other words, I'm one of those people who use Shin Rental Server's campaign and use it cheaply (lol).

Comparison with other companies' servers

I'm going to go out of my way to compare Thin Rentals with other companies' servers and the wpX series.

We have also used a whole range of popular domestic rental servers such as mixhost and ConoHa WING to provide a realistic comparison.

mIxhost vs thin rental server

I've been using mixhost for three years. I'll leave the subjective impressions for later and first compare it to Thin Server in terms of features and pricing plans.

First, let's take a look at the pricing plans & features at mIxhost. Below is the price list of mIxhost.

Mixhost Price Plans

The cheapest rate plan among these is the Standard (968 yen/month). So this timeBasic Plan, the lowest price of Thin ServerCompare with

mixhost (Standard Plan) Thin Rental Server Comparison Chart

There are no initial fees for either. The monthly fee is cheaper with Thin Server.

Also, overall, the performance of Thin Server is higher than the price.

Differences in personal usability

Mixhost Receipt

I have been using mixhost since October 30, 2018. From this actual experience, I can say that it is a good rental server. The support response was polite and prompt, and I was generally satisfied with the service, although it was not user-friendly in some places.

However, the one that was right for me was Thin Rentals Server. The price is low, the server is high performance, and the admin panel is easy to read and use. It's impeccable.

If you are reading this, and you are running/planning to run a WordPress site, I recommend Thin Client.

ConoHa WING vs Thin Rental Server

One of the most popular rental servers in Japan is ConoHa WING. I myself have been using ConoFa WING since January 2020 until now.

[2022] An in-depth look at the features, reputation, and ease of use of thin rental servers

I pay 1,320 yen per month. Now, let's compare the performance of Thin Rentals Server and ConoHa WING.

Monthly fee775 yen770 yen
Capacity (SSD)300GB300GB
CPUVirtual 6-coreVirtual 6-core
Approximate Transfer Volume27TB27TB (monthly conversion)
Free Trial PeriodNone10 days
ConoHa WING (Basic Plan) Thin Server Comparison Chart

The memory and CPU of ConoHa WING are not guaranteed. It is not specified in the specifications and price list.

In November 2021, each spec was released in the price list.The fees and specifications are similar.

On the other hand, ConoHa WING also offers another plan called the Reserved Plan.

The Reserved Plan guarantees memory and CPU for each person.

In other words, to ensure stable operation even when the load rises, you need to use the 1,320 yen/month~reserved plan. Other plans do not offer any guarantees.

By the way, if you compare the cheapest plan of the reserved plan with the basic plan of the thin rental server, you will find the following

FeaturesReserved PlanThin Server Rental
Initial cost0 yen0 yen
Monthly fee1,320 yen770 yen
Capacity (SSD)300GB300GB
CPUVirtual 2-coreVirtual 6-core
Approximate Transfer Volume27TB27TB (monthly conversion)

ConoHa WING (Basic Plan) Thin Server Comparison Chart

Even with the basic plan (770 yen), Thin Rental Server allocates memory and CPU for each user.

Thin Server is cheaper and has better performance.

Differences in personal usability

I used ConoHa WING for two years and did not feel any inconvenience.

I had contacted the support once and they were very polite, so I don't have a bad impression. It is still a good rental server as its reputation suggests.

It's just...The admin panel was slow and frustrating at times.

ConoHa WING Slow
Loading screen with ConoHa WING

The items are separated by a sidebar, so it was a hassle to navigate to each setting. The admin panel is much easier to use with Thin Server.

X server vs Thin rental server

Both X server and Thin server are operated by the same company, and the difference between the two is simple.

Shin Rental Server isBe the first to introduce features that will be added to X serverThat's what I mean.

In other words, X server is cautious. Thin Server is an innovator (while still valuing stability).

That is why the latest technology is introduced earlier than X server.

The cheapest X server is the Standard Plan (990 yen/month), with CPU and memory as follows

X server vs Thin rental server

Relatively recently, if you are using an X server, you are guaranteed to have a virtual 6-core CPU and 8GB of memory. The essentials are 300GB, so the performance is close to that of a thin rental server.

  • X server (990 yen/month)
  • Shin Rental Server (770 yen/month)

Considering the monthly fee, I would recommend Thin Server Rental.

Why should I use a thin rental server now?

Why am I recommending Thin Server for rent at this time?

That's because we are running a limited time campaign.

The monthly fee is 30% off for new subscribers until January 13, 2021.

Hmm? What does that mean?

For example, if you sign up for the regular basic plan of Shin Rental Server, you can use it for only 539 yen (including tax) instead of the usual 770 yen.

By the way, I also applied for a 36-month contract.
