CANTECH INDIA started out in 2009, and in 2018, this Indian host ranked among the top 20 most promising web hosting companies by Silicon India Magazine.
CANTECH’s English-language website sells shared hosting, cloud hosting, WordPress hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, cloud server, email hosting, domain solutions, SSL certificates, server management, and some additional services.
Features and Ease of Use
CANTECH INDIA offers eight shared hosting packages (four each for Linux and Windows), three WordPress hosting packages, three cloud hosting packages, 15 VPS packages (seven Linux and eight Windows), 18 dedicated server packages, eight reseller hosting packages (four each for Linux and Windows). Note that the main website doesn’t list all the VPS and dedicated server packages, so you have to visit the separate store pages to see some of them.
The Linux shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 1 GB to unlimited storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 1 to unlimited websites
- 100 to unlimited emails
- 10 to unlimited MySQL databases
- Daily and weekly backups
Hosting plans are administered with the cPanel control panel that helps you manage all aspects of your hosting. It incorporates the Softaculous installer for a huge number of content management and other popular programs.
When your website is up-and-running, you can secure it with a SiteLock plan and a paid SSL certificate.
Pricing and Support
CANTECH INDIA’S Linux shared hosting plans are pretty cheap, and deals are available occasionally on the offers page, but note that the advertised low rates are for a triennial term. Pay for your plan in Indian rupees or U.S. dollars via Instamojo, PayPal, or Razorpay on an annual, biennial, or triennial basis (plus quarterly and semi-annually on the two higher plans).
The 30-day money-back guarantee should pay back a significant portion of your fees (maximum 80%) if anything goes wrong within the first month.
Although this host’s website includes a knowledge base, it contains only a handful of entries. For one-to-one support, you can contact this company by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I got quick answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
