Features and Ease of Use
Domain India has plans for websites of different sizes. There are dedicated servers and VPS for large websites ,while its shared plans are suitable for small and medium-sized businesses. These are some of the features that come with Domain India’s shared hosting plans:
- 99.9 % uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificates
- One, five, or unlimited domains
- Up to unlimited bandwidth
- 5000MB, 25,000MB, or unlimited storage
To simplify the management of the hosting resources and website, Domain India provides cPanel. It’s an easy to use control panel that comes with a load of nice features, including a one-click application installer. With the Softaculous installer, you can easily and quickly set up WordPress and a good number of popular web applications and CMSes.
Furthermore, Domain India’s provision of a free website builder further cements its hosting as easy to use for beginners. Through the Sitebuilder software, you can create your website without writing one line of HTML; it has a drag-and-drop tool.
Developers will get support for PHP, MySQL, and Perl. It also provides Zend Optimizer, ImageMagick, GD library, CGI-BIN, and cURL.
Good hosting wouldn’t be complete without some security. Domain India provides firewalls and mod_security rule sets to prevent denial of service attacks and hacking. There’s also network-level protection. Furthermore, the server is redundant with multiple bandwidth providers and backup generators.
Pricing and Support
Domain India doesn’t offer a free trial or free plan, but it provides a demo of cPanel on its server that you can use to see how the control panel and FTP work if you haven’t used them before. Aside from that, you’ll need to pay to start using or testing its services.
The company offers basic tools and a bit extra with the free SSL certificates and website builder. For that, its prices are low. Also, there’s a 14-day money-back guarantee. Although that’s not up to the industry average of 30 days, the time provided should allow you to see how good its servers and other resources are.
Its dedicated servers and VPS are low-priced as well but you will have to contact the sales team if you wish to make a purchase. For the shared hosting and reseller hosting, you can pay online with your debit/credit card, net banking, UPI, cash card (only for India), cheque, bank transfer, and PayPal.
Domain India has a knowledge base that contains guides, including a number of video tutorials.
You can reach its support agents through phone, WhatsApp, email, ticketing system, and live chat. In my experience with email support, I got a template sales proposal when I inquired about updating my nameservers, which was disappointing.
