    Can anyone give me details on good webhosting providers?

    I need uptime guarantee, no hassles, as cheap as possible, max space, bandwidth, 100% domain control...

    Guyz (& galz) who are into maintaining their own sites, please tell me how your providers are? How is the customer service? Are you satisfied?

    And is anyone into ManasHosting? How is their services?


    Ps: And how is BSNL's 900/- Unlimited Dataone plan? Average Speed achieved?

    I think no one can beat the offer of 1GB space and 10 GB bandwidth for Rs. 1000/- PA. But you can get good webhosting for Rs. 300/- to Rs. 500/- PA if your requirement is low. If you need 25MB space and 500MB bandwidth you can get that for Rs. 500 or less.

    2GB which includes domain-name for 1500/-, no bad vibes... Mr. _______ (btw, do you have a site on this matter? what r the sites uploaded by ur courtesy? and.. are they ad-free..., flash support?) You just didn't give enough detail maan... Sample some.

    I need proof of someone using some service provider for quite sometime?

    And ya... has anyone done it under manashosting? Is there a better offer?

    hi nithinks, thanks for remindin... but can you guide me to the places asked; i didn't find many useful in the "search" menu.

    Can anyone please be good boys and give me answers, not comments.

    I need third-party(users) talk, not direct providers. Don't take it bad guyz, but I want the voice of the people. This might even boost ur publicity.

    and, ya... any ManasHosting guyz? Terrific packages.

    Thanks again.

    koolbluez I am not in webhosting business. Although space and bandwidth has become very cheap now a days. But If someone sells something so cheap there are generally some catch. Although I have no experience with above hosting provider and may be there service is good, but I think they are overselling the space and bandwidth assuming that average user does not use this much space and bandwidth. You may find some plan where provider say they give unlimited space and bandwidth but there are no such thing as unlimited. Have you seen their terms it says all. Check what they are saying.
    Although they are giving 2GB space and 10GB bandwidth. Take my bet, if you will use more than 100MB space or more than 1GB bandwidth they will terminate your account.

    WHYIWASBANNEDFORNOREASON,

    You are right, last time I ask manashosting to provide me IP nos where they will host my site, they refuse saying I will abuse it.

    They think I come to know there IPs only if they provide me same.

    Along with others, even I can offer hosting :D I have offerred free hosting to members of this board having more than 250 posts. You will qualify soon. 3 members of this board are already using free hosting. You can have a look at this thread. http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showthread.php?t=30182. I have also been offerring paid hosting. So just in case you don't want free :cool: you can take paid :D

    There are some more threads running in the bazaar section of this forum offerring hosting. Check them out.

    IMO, Manas hosting sucks! In hosting just follow one golden rule - if you see some offer that TOO GOOD, then probably its TOO BAD!! Have a look at this thread on Manas Hosting
    http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32198

    Manas hosting is giving a domain name + dedicated IP + 2000 MB space! A domain name costs somewhere between 300 to 400. Lets take it as 300. Dedicated IPs cost about $2 per month. So its about 1100 per year. That comes to Rs. 1400. So you mean Manas hosting is giving 2000 MB for Rs. 100 a year? Can they survive like this?

    Good dedicated servers cost about $300 per month for 100 GB space. Lets say they have taken an average server which costs them $200 per month. That comes to 110,000 per year. So their per MB cost is about Re. 1 per year!! So how can they offer you 2000 MB in Rs. 100??

    There are only 3 possibilities here:
    1. They are lying. There will be hidden costs.
    2. Their servers are real bad which costed them a really low amount.
    3. They are heavily overselling their space and so their servers are tightly stuffed.

    In all cases, your site will suffer :( On one of the occassions, I have tried some pre-sales questions with them and I can tell you they suck! They couldn't answer so many questions!!

    Did you notice one thing? Their reseller prices are more than their shared hosting prices :lol: That shows they are overselling in shared hosting. Read their terms and you will surely find some catch somewhere. I will try to do it as soon as I have some time.

    In hosting, its very rare to find cheap AND good! But you are free to try as many hosting as you want as long as you control the domain name and have a backup of your site. ;)

    Whatever hosting you take, ask a lot of pre-sales questions and satisfy yourself. These are some of the questions that came to my mind just-now. More questions may arise depending on what answers you get.

    1. Ask for third party uptime stats
    2. Take a demo of contrl panel. (I have taken one of Manas hosting and it sucks and works only in IE)
    3. Ask for server config
    4. Ask about support
    5. Request for a free-trail period OR money-back guarantee
    6. Ask about back-up policy (frequency, RAID, etc.)
    7. Is there a cap on number of email addresses or MySQL DB? What are the charges if you want more?
    8. Do you get POP3 and IMAP access? What about web-based mail?
    9. How many FTP account can be configured?
    10. What happens in case you exceed allotted badnwidth
    11. How many emails can you send per hour? You may not need that many emails. But if this limit is too high, then there are high chanced that the server may get black-listed every now and then as spam server.
    12. Which version of cPanel, PHP, MySQL, Apache, Perl, etc. do they use?
    13. Ask for php_info(). WordPress, phpBB and so many other software run on php and MySQL.
    14. Where are the servers actually located?
    15. Request for some sites hosted on same server. Are they dynamic sites or static ones?

    i have also seen it for RS. 120 but i had never heard that site saw it in google ad clicked it was but extra charges for hidden whois and custom name server.....
    I guess Intel Xeon 3040 Dual-core Conroe Processor is good????
    this with 1gb ram 250gb hdd, 1.5tb B/W, 10IP's for 150$ in this
    the final cost to us will be 35 bucks more for cPanel License.....

    I found the prices of realvaluehosting quite balanced ... I mean I will def. not go with a company which offers hosting a super cheap prices as every hosting company has to pay server charges, office and employees salaries etc. etc.

    BTW, if anybody looking for super cheap hosting and came across about Manashosting offers than he/she must see this site - http://manashostingreviews.blogspot.com
