Hoskia India (unsurprisingly) is an Indian hosting company based in Thrissur, Kerala. It was founded relatively recently in May 2018, to offer a range of affordably-priced web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, and dedicated server solutions along with domain services and SSL certificates.
According to the metrics published on its attractive English-language website, Hoskia India has registered more than 3,000 domains, completed more than 400 projects, pleased almost 300 happy clients, and won 850 awards in the short time since it was set up.
Features and Ease of Use
Hoskia India offers three shared web hosting plans that appear to provide the same features but different data allowances of 10 GB to unlimited SSD storage. Since the company offers easy upgrades at any time, you can start with a lower plan and move to a higher plan as your website grows.
The same set of hosting plans is offered under the WordPress Hosting heading, which may be merely to emphasize the WordPress compatibility. Whether WordPress or not, the shared web hosting plans provide you with:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited email
- Unlimited subdomains
- Free SSL certificates
SSD storage (for faster data read/write speeds) and Cloudflare CDN (for local content caching) combine to ensure faster page loading. You also get to enjoy 99.9% uptime.
Comodo cWatch provides 360-degree website security that combines automatic malware removal tools with “patent pending” scans to provide customers with robust and reliable website protection.
Additional pay-for add-ons include sitemap generation, search engine submission, Google analytics integration, Google webmaster account and site verification, and Facebook business page setup.
When you’re ready to scale up from shared hosting, Hoskia India can also offer you three business hosting plans, three reseller hosting plans, 18 dedicated server plans, and 18 VPS plans.
Pricing and Support
Hoskia India’s plans are pretty cheap. You can pay for them on various billing cycles from monthly to biennially, and by multiple methods including credit/debit cards, PayPal, Paytm, and various mobile wallets. Note that you don’t get a discount for a longer-term commitment, but you do get free backups, a free SSL certificate, free website migration, and a 30-day money-back guarantee on some plans.
Hoskia India’s 24/7 customer support team can be contacted by telephone, ticket, email, online form or live chat. I tried the live chat twice, and my questions were answered promptly and satisfactorily each time.
Hoskia India provides a useful FAQ section that should answer some common questions, and a knowledge base containing several tutorial-style informative posts for additional self-support.
