Hivium started out relatively recently in November 2018. Its cloud web hosting and managed WordPress plans are cheap, and it doesn't skimp on one-to-one pre-sales support.

Overview

HiviumIndian web hosting company Hivium is based in Pune, Maharashtra. According to its Facebook page, it was established in November 2018, and today it offers cloud web hosting, application hosting (for WordPress, Magento, and LMS), unmanaged VPS hosting, and managed cloud servers. This vendor’s English-language website also sells domain services, SSL certificates, and Blesta licenses.

Features and Ease of Use

Hivium offers three cloud web hosting plans, three fully-managed WordPress hosting plans, three managed Learning Management System (LMS) hosting plans, three Magento hosting plans, 16 managed cloud servers, and four unmanaged NVMe VPS plans.

The three cloud web hosting plans provide you with:

  • cPanel powered control panel
  • 1 to 10 hosted websites
  • 1 to 3 CPU cores
  • 5 GB to 40 GB NVMe disk space
  • Unmetered bandwidth
  • 1 GB to 5 GB RAM
  • 10 to 100 mailboxes
  • 1 to 10 free migrations
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Free b-weekly server backups (stored for 14 days)

Building your website is easy, thanks to the SitePad website builder. Alternatively, or as well, you can use the Softaculous installer to install your favorite content management system such as WordPress. Since this hosting is fully managed, you can concentrate on your core business while Hivium handles backend tasks such as backups, security patches, and updates.

Performance enhancements include LiteSpeed + LSCache (which is faster than the Apache web server) and the Cloudflare CDN (which caches content close to your visitors and provides protection against some kinds of cyberattacks).

The (guaranteed) uptime could be 99.95% or 99.99%, depending which web page you believe or which package you pick.

Pricing and Support

Hivium’s cloud web hosting plans are cheap, and you can pay for them in Indian rupees or U.S. dollars via PayPal, Razorpay, or Stripe, on monthly to triennial billing cycles. Cloud web hosting accounts come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, and managed WordPress plans are backed by a 7-day money-back guarantee, so you have some opportunities to get out early (with a full refund) if you’re not entirely happy.

Contact this company’s support staff by telephone, ticket, email, live chat, or online contact form. You can expect a response within 24 hours on weekdays, and I can tell you that my exploratory email(s) received rapid responses:

It’s a good thing that the one-to-one support is so good because the self-support knowledge base is almost bare.
