Features and Ease of Use
Arise Server offers four Linux shared hosting plans, four Windows shared hosting plans, eight reseller hosting plans (four each for Linux and Windows), and four server colocation plans in India. At this host, you will also find virtual servers, cloud servers, and dedicated servers that are available in various locations, including the U.S.A., the U.K., U.A.E., Canada, Singapore, Germany, and Italy.
The Linux shared hosting plans provide you with:
- CloudLinux OS
- cPanel control panel
- Free .in domain
- 99.9% uptime guarantee (but 99.99% uptime is also mentioned)
- 1 GB to unlimited disk space
- 10 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- 1 to unlimited domains
- 1 to unlimited subdomains
- 1 to unlimited email accounts
- 1 to unlimited MySQL databases
- Support for PHP, Perl, Python, and Ruby on Rails
- Cron jobs to schedule tasks
- Antivirus and anti-malware
- STP and SFTP to access
The Linux shared hosting plans use SSD storage for improved performance and reliability, and the regular backups help protect you against data loss disasters. The content delivery network (CDN) improves page loading speeds around the world as well as protecting you against some kinds of cyberattacks.
You can get jailed SSH access (on request) to access your account, and with the VPS, cloud servers, and dedicated servers, you get root access for complete control of your server. Since the dedicated servers come equipped with hardware RAID, any individual disk failure shouldn’t spell disaster.
Pricing and Support
Arise Server’s shared hosting plans are priced a bit above the industry average. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars by Bitcoin or PayPal on an annual basis, but there are no refunds for services.
24/7 customer support can be summoned via telephone, support ticket, Skype, email, pre-sales contact form, or live chat. Unfortunately, my test support ticket went unanswered, and my live chat was cut short after a single answer:
For self-support, Arise Server provides a YouTube channel with a couple of generic videos, but (unfortunately) its knowledge base is bare.
