Everdata Technologies (EverData) is a leading Indian provider of data center facilities, hosting services, and IPv6 consultancy. It established the first privately owned Tier 3 data center in India’s state of Rajasthan.
This provider takes pride in its impressive client base of more than 11,000 happy customers including Guinness World Records, TeamViewer, Holiday Inn, and Radisson Hotels. Its website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
EverData boasts a rock-solid infrastructure with world-class data centers in multiple locations including Pune, New Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur, Germany, Texas, San Jose, and France. Such a globally branched network plays a key role in delivering steady performance and high-speed connections.
EverData also offers a broad range of hosting products and internet services for private and business use, such as SSD shared hosting, Windows and Linux reseller hosting, Java hosting, dedicated servers, VPS, SSD VPS, domain registration, and email services.
Although its Linux shared hosting plans are available only in India, its Windows/SSD shared hosting packages are available worldwide. The hosting packages share the following standard features:
- 99.9% uptime SLA
- PHP 5
- 24/7 customer support
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Free e-commerce
- Perl and AJAX
- Up to unlimited disk space
The Linux hosting packages use the CentOS or Red Hat operating system. You get unlimited parked domains, 5 to unlimited sub-domains, up to unlimited FTP and MySQL accounts, and the ability to host between 1 and 10 domains. Newbie webmasters can easily create professional websites with the site builder, and you can easily install popular apps using the Softaculous installer included with the cPanel control panel. Experts might be more excited by the support for Perl, AJAX, and Ruby on Rails.
The Windows shared hosting comes with the Plesk control panel rather than cPanel, and it lets you design your website using FrontPage.
Your best bet for high-traffic websites is the faster, more reliable, and more scaleable SSD hosting that comes in Linux and Windows flavors with almost identical features.
Pricing and Support
EverData offers a fair pricing policy, with each service having several affordable price plans to suit different needs. Discounts and promo codes are also available.
The SSD and VPS plans offer a free trial, free SSL certificates, and a free domain with annual subscriptions. On the downside, you pay extra fees for additional services such as website backups. All hosting services come with a short 7-day money-back guarantee, and payment options include wire transfer and credit/debit cards (only in India).
Although this vendor’s website is chock full of information, it’s slightly confusing, and the knowledge base section is very limited.
For one-to-one support, EverData provides 24/7 live chat, ticket support, and a toll-free telephone number. Both the live chat and ticket support channel failed my expectations. The ticket support team gave me vague answers, and the live chat agent seemed to be too lazy to answer a few basic questions at all:
