Host Mantra has a lot to offer, owing to its feature-rich hosting solutions. Its competitive prices take it a few rungs up my appreciation ladder, but poor support brings it back down.

Overview

Host Mantra

Indian web hosting provider Host Mantra has been growing continuously since it was launched in 2010. To help achieve a more global outreach, it also has offices in the U.S.A., and its product range includes Linux and Windows shared and reseller hosting.

Host Mantra’s English-language website is well-organized and informative.

Features and Ease of Use

Host Mantra

Host Mantra currently offers its services in three countries – the U.S.A., the U.K., and India – each of which has a separate set of web hosting packages with their own prices and specifications. However, they do have the following features in common:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Free domain
  • Automatic backups every five days
  • Unlimited disk space (Indian and U.K. plans)
  • Unlimited bandwidth (India and U.K. plans)
  • Antivirus

Linux plans are powered by the cPanel control panel whereas Windows plans are powered by Plesk. Both panels provide a user-friendly interface through which you can manage all aspects of your website, including the installation of CMS software such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, and Magento. Whereas cPanel supports the Softaculous installer, the Plesk panel includes its own one-click installer

Both control panels also offer a selection of website builders which you can use to design your website without having too many technical skills. If you don’t want to do it yourself, Host Mantra’s web design team can build a website using your preferred design.

Pricing and Support

Host Mantra’s pricing scheme is a little complicated, so let me try to simplify it for you. The Linux and Windows hosting plans are categorized by country, with the U.S. plans being different and cheaper than the U.K. and Indian offerings. 

Hosting plans are cheap compared to market prices, and you can pay using a variety of payment methods, including credit cards, wire transfers, Western Union, checks, money orders, and more. If you’re not sure about signing up, you can take comfort from the 30-day money-back guarantee.

Unfortunately, support isn’t one of Host Mantra’s strong points. First, its website contains a lot of broken links. Second, the live chat wasn’t available when I wanted to try it, and my exploratory emails/tickets received no responses. If you want support, you might even get this when you click the link.

Bottom line on Host Mantra

Host Mantra’s mantra is “Our business is about serving customers, not just about hosting websites, apps and servers or maintaining IT infrastructure.” Unfortunately, it doesn’t serve customers as well as it would like since some parts of its website are broken and its pre-sales support team doesn’t seem to respond. It’s a pity because Host Mantra’s hosting plans come at competitive prices.

Pros

  • Affordable prices
  • Free domain
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Hosting for both Linux and Windows

Cons

  • Poor customer support
  • Malfunctioning website
