Indian company Arise Server offers Linux and Windows shared hosting plans plus reseller, VPS, cloud, and dedicated server solutions. The downsides are that its prices are slightly high, and its support provision seems to be low (at least for pre-sales).


Overview

Arise ServerIndian web hosting company Arise Server was established in 2016. According to its Facebook page, it is headquartered in Delhi, NCR, Uttar Pradesh. Its website is in English, but its cart area can be switched into twenty-five additional languages.

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.

Bottom line on Arise Server

Arise Server seems to be doing a decent job of providing hosting services, albeit at slightly high prices. Although I managed to hook up briefly via live chat, I regard its pre-sales support as slightly substandard.

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Free .in domain
  • No setup costs

Cons

  • Only three years of industry experience
  • No money-back guarantee
