I love the newly designed WestHost website. I love how you have added more features and it answers more questions that people about about hosting and the aspects of it. It looks AWESOME and flows very well. Two thumbs way up.

I agree! Very nice. I like that you have kept the concept of showing pictures of the staff. I see that the new Cloud hosting has been unveiled with this also. I wonder if the environment is more like WH 3.0 since the VPS term is used?

Seems good, but I'am missing the semi-delicate hosting.
Is it not longer possible to take this account?
The reason I ask is that I have this account and what will be done in the future with this?

aberg,
Would one of the new Cloud Hosting plans work for you? http://www.westhost.com/cloud-hosting/ I don't remember the specifics of the semi-dedicated but I think these would be the likely replacements for them.

aberg,

Thank you for your question. In place of the semi-dedicated accounts we offered previously, we are now offering cloud hosting accounts which you can see here: http://www.westhost.com/cloud-hosting/. The main benefit of the cloud accounts is that they have dedicated server resources.

Shawn, the plain cloud hosting accounts do not offer root access so you will not be able to edit the main Apache and MySQL configuration files, etc., like you could in 3.0. If you would like root access and the ability to modify these files, you would either need to sign up for a reseller package (http://www.westhost.com/reseller-hosting/), which is also in the cloud, or a dedicated server (http://www.westhost.com/unmanaged-dedicated-servers/).
