    I just wanted to know whether there are any good hosts in india that give you a decent value for money !

    I searched the forum but was unable to come to a conclusive decision.

    If no host is found in India .... than please recommend hosts that are abroad but are good enough to trust and give a good value for money !


    I am searching for good quality paid hosting and not for the ones that offer free hosting with VERY bad deals ... when it comes to charging money !!

    Well, the servers in USA/ Canada would be cheap as internet is cheap there.
    While, you go for Indian server hosts too but, it might costs you a little more as internet is costly here.

    My company's server is located in USA and you can pay in INR.

    well i've used site5.com for a year and their service's been great . i even asked them to install a custom php module and they did it in 3 days . but they're a tad expensive but checkout their site to have a look , and see if u can afford .

    I haven't heard good reviews bout 'em. People say that to install scripts they need to be modified too much to suit godaddy servers. They are good for domains only!

    I toally Agree , godaddy is just good with domains .

    i used it for some time , and they still use mysql 3 and php 4.1 , also they don't have support fot .htaccess anf other apache features , they have very few modules for php installed and WILL not install custom modules for u .

    so spend a bit more and get a good host .

    BTW : i use site5.com

    IMHO, stay away from Godaddy, Net4domains, Indiatimes, Rediff, etc. for hosting. They are not only pathetic, they are horrible, especially Indiatimes and rediff. BTW, godaddy isn't even good for domains ;) There are better alternatives available.

    Actually, what is a good host depends on your requirements. There are hardly any hosts in India with their servers in India. Almost all have their servers in US data centres. Thats cheaper and better too. Those data cnetres have better connectivity than Indian ISP servers. You can try following commands for some information ;)

    "tracert domain.com" to see the number of hops from your connection to that server. More hops is bad.

    "ping domain.com" that will show you how much time 32 bytes take to travel. More time is bad. Of course this could vary from time to time.

    However, this values are only from "your" machine to the server. So if a visitor to your site is from some othe part of the world, values will differ. At times, site owners even consider target audience to their sites. For example, if they expect more visitors from Europe, they try a europe based server.

    However, usually, these things don't matter much and you won't even notice much difference. Even this digit site is hosted on a US server. Do you face any problems in accessing it?
