Support for clients of TransIP are limited through the support ticket system which they can access by logging in to their account. The management has strictly imposed rules on when a client can only use their phone support which is for network problems only. But aside from that, they also offer a Help Desk and a knowledgebase where clients can learn information that may be relevant to their current site problems.
Security features for TransIP include shared SSL, anti-spam and anti-virus email protection as well as an optional Snapshot and private SSL certificate.
TransIP is definitely a company who knows their business inside and out. Their site alone shows you just how much they know about web hosting as well as their own innovations in the plans that they offer to the clients. Their SSD drives assure you of fast connectivity as well as security against potential threats to your site. I think that for their price, they are offering a decent web hosting packages with enough features for individual to large-scale enterprises.
I think that their only downside is their tech support which is quite limited and does not offer a spoon-feeding approach to clients. They will teach you how to solve any problems that you may have in your site but they will not do the step-by-step process of doing it themselves unless they involve network problems. For that, I think the company deserves an 8 out of 10 rating.
