Bottom line on BIGROCK

BigRock is an Indian hosting company with over 10 years of experience in shared hosting and cloud hosting. In addition to hosting services, the company also offers domain registration, e-commerce solutions, enterprise-class email, and a website builder. BigRock powers 6 million websites in India, U.S., and other parts of the world.

 

Features and Ease of Use

BigRock offers feature-rich and reliable shared hosting services as well as reseller hosting.  Under shared hosting, you can choose between Linux and Windows hosting. Both are powered by Dell Rack servers with Dual Quad Core CPUs. Notable features include:

  • cPanel
  • Unlimited domains
  • Email accounts
  • PhpMyAdmin
  • MySQL
  • Website tracking tools

I can talk about many of the featuresBigRock offers, but one thing that stood out to me was Softaculous. This software stack includes 300+ third-party apps, including Joomla, WordPress, Drupal and free e-commerce platforms. With the installer, you can set up your website with just a few clicks. The Linux hosting plans comewith a web accelerator that lets you cache dynamic and static content. The outcome is a 3-10x faster website and shorter wait times.

Pricing and Support

BigRock has three key plans. The first is the StarterPlan, which is ideal for a personal blog or website. You get 20GB storage space to host one website and five email accounts, plus 100GB transfer bandwidth. You can pay monthly, annually, or in advance for up to five years.

The Advanced Plan is up next. This one is suitable for web developers with a target of 75,000 monthly visitors. It has all the features of the Starter Plan with the added advantage of unlimited email accounts and unmetered bandwidth.

BigRock also has a plan for startups and fast-growing enterprises. With the Business Plan you can host three websites. Like in the Advanced Plan, you can set up as many email accounts as you like. You also get unlimited storage space and unmetered bandwidth.

When you register for BigRock web hosting,you can register adomain and sign up to their premium email serviceat the same time. The same applies for SSL and other optional add-ons.All three plans have a limited 30-day trial.

If you’d like to inquire about BigRock’s hosting services and plans, they have toll-free numbers and support email addresses for customers in the USA and India. You can use either to inquire about their web hosting services and plans. Be sure to use the right contacts, as there are separate numbers for India, USA, and international customers.

If you need technical support or help with billing, you can call or submit a ticket. While live operators are available 24/7, live chat support is only available during normal working hours, and I am not sure about the time zone. BigRock also allows customers to submit complaints or report abuse online. With 99.9% uptime and dedicated support, you know they have your back.

Overall, BigRock has a clean and user-friendly interface, and I love the fact that they provide access to cPanel, the world’s most popular hosting control panel. If you’re familiar with it, working from your BigRock hosting account should be simple.
