Is there a best host?
With a myriad of different web hosts out there, there is not one best host, but only the best host for each and every person’s needs. Often, localised hosting can be very helpful as the support reps are likely to be from the same country, thus being able to give more support. In addition to that, localised payment options may also be available to people who are not able to pay in any foreign currency.
Regarding the fact that localised hosting is very advantageous and of benefit, we will be talking about 5 different providers of WordPress hosting that are based in a country that has a population of around 1 billion(that’s 9 zeros!), India.
MilesWeb is no doubt one of the top hosting companies based in India. They offer a wide rang of hosting solutions, with perfect hosting plans and platforms for each use, be it personal, business or mission critical.
Adding on, MilesWeb also provide you with separate WordPress hosting, that is built for speed and has great flexibility. MilesWeb ensures that the hosting environment is safe and secure so that you can concentrate on your website rather than your website issues. Their WordPress hosting servers are robust and built for providing maximum speed, reliability and thereby the best website performance.
They also have exceptional support, and are extremely helpful and helpful so that you don’t have to worry about any technical aspect if you wish to start a blog or any website. They are there with you and will provide you with comprehensive support whenever required for getting your blog/website live. They deliver optimum performance (99.95% network uptime SLA is provided to ensure high availability of your website in all conditions), and best of all they are fast, safe and secure.
Here is just a quick overview on what they provide:
- Great Quality Products

BlueHost’s package is a simple, competitive option in the hosting market.
If you like to keep things simple, you’ll enjoy the fact that BlueHost keeps everything in-house, and their one-click installers offer enough to keep beginner and intermediate website owners busy, however there support have many problems, like most EIG hosting provider. If you’re expecting spikes in server load, or if you are already a blog with high traffic, or you need an uptime guarantee, you may be better off spending a little more money with a different host.
Regardless of them providing 24/7 support via phone, email, telephone and live chat, all linked through a central Helpdesk portal their support reps are a hit and miss. Most have an “attitude” when you contact them. They will tell you something definitively, even though they have no clue what they’re talking about.
BlueHost is only a good hosting company for individuals looking for small businesses or personal sites.
Offering five different types of hosting plans, BigRock covers most hosting needs. Windows and Linux users will both find hosting options with plans that fit many budgets.
BigRock has a fully accessible knowledge base where users can quickly find answers to common issues. The customer support phone line and live chat options are available around the clock. Users are helped by fully qualified, dedicated tech support, however sometimes they may act a little bit dumb.
Here is an evaluation of big rock:
- Wide range of pricing and service plans
- Many payment options + Affordable
- 24 hour tech support
- Some of the entry level plans are very bare bones.
BigRock is among the class of hosts that offer basic needs. If your biggest concern is affordability, BigRock should make the list. If you need simple web building tools, they may miss the mark.
Likewise, serious web-masters or companies with huge amounts of traffic may need to pass this and look around even more.
ZnetLive is one of the leading web hosting companies in India and was created in 2002 to provide the “best web hosting solution” all over India.
Though Znetlive is an Indian based company, it has a close tie to the US and Singapore and offers some servers there too. It has got awards & accreditations by technology authorities such as Microsoft.
ZnetLive also has an active support community and a optimum uptime of 99.9%. They are definitely one to go after.
GoDaddy is a company which is mainly focused on domain registration so I would not really recommend you to even try them out.
Go Daddy places emphasis on selling domain names. That’s obviously their core business model. While they do offer a large number of web hosting plans, these are not that obvious on the website and don’t feel particularly competitive. In addition, I really found their backend really confusing and annoying.
It’s not just the expensive plans that didn’t impress. They do not give the optimum uptime, nor do they provide proper support. And they do not even have a money-back guarantee which makes them very untrustworthy.
If you want to keep all your domain management and hosting in one place, Go Daddy will probably cut you a pretty good deal. However, you sacrifice a lot of your time and money.
These are just a few of the hosting providers that are based in India. Do you have any others to add? Let us know in the comments below.
