Features and Ease of Use
With CloudIBN’s six Linux shared hosting plans, you get:
- 99.9% guaranteed uptime
- cPanel control panel
- 500 MB to 2500 MB web space
- 5 GB to 25 GB yearly data transfer
- 5 to 10 domains (with the three Enterprise plans)
- Cloud backup
These plans come with the Softaculous one-click installer that helps you install dozens of free applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart, Drupal, Magento, and OpenCart. Alternatively, you can create your website using CloudIBN’s free website templates, and an introductory offer (on an annual plan) provides you with a free website builder and a free domain.
CloudIBN’s CDN ensures that your visitors get cached web content from their nearest point-of-presence (PoP) for faster page loading speeds. This CDN also provides security against certain kinds of threats. Furthermore, redundancy and resilience at all levels ensure high performance.
As well as the Linux shared hosting plans, CloudIBN also offers six Windows shared hosting plans, six reseller hosting plans (three each for Linux and Windows), four colocation plans, and several VPS and dedicated servers hosted at European and Indian data centers.
Pricing and Support
CloudIBN’s plans are priced competitively, and you can pay in a range of currencies which depend on the kind of plan you pick. Typical billing periods include monthly and quarterly, but again, this depends on what kind of hosting you want.
This host mentions a too-short ten-day refund window from the time you sign up. It also indicates that it will only provide a pro-rata refund if it has been unable to provide the services you have paid for.
You can call on the 24/7 customer support team via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat, and remote support is also available. The live chat was unavailable whenever I wanted to try it, and I got no satisfactory answers when I finally hooked up. Even my relatively uncontroversial question about server locations was met with the response, “Can’t share this information on chat, apologies.”
