Indian host HostAye offers a wide range of cheap hosting solutions. Although pre-sales support was forthcoming via live chat, the self-support resources leave something to be desired.

Overview

HostAyeSince starting its journey in 2016, HostAye has supplied almost 10,000 shared hosting packages to nearly 9,000 clients.

Its English-language website sells shared hosting, WordPress hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, cloud hosting, offshore hosting, reseller hosting, domain services, SSL certificates, and some extra things.

Features and Ease of Use

HostAye offers ten shared hosting packages (including business hosting), four WordPress hosting packages, 12 VPS packages, four offshore hosting packages, three cloud hosting packages, 13 dedicated server packages, and four reseller hosting packages. However, there are some discrepancies between what is advertised on the website product pages and what is available for purchase in the cart.

The Business Hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 500 MB to unlimited storage
  • 10 GB to unlimited bandwidth
  • One to unlimited websites
  • cPanel control panel
  • Attracta SEO tools
  • DDoS protection
  • Imunify360 security
  • Firewall and malware scanner
  • Database backups and restore

If you’re uncomfortable coding a website from scratch, you can instead use the industry-leading Weebly website builder that helps you build a professional web presence without having to be a professional web designer or developer. Alternatively, you can use the Softaculous one-click installer to install WordPress (for blogging), Magento (for e-commerce), or another application.

Once your website is up-and-running, you can secure it with a free SSL certificate. You also get SiteLock security that includes advanced scanning and immediate notifications.

Pricing and Support

HostAye’s business hosting plans are dirt cheap, and a special offers page provides opportunities to pay even less, e.g., 30% off at the time of this review. You can pay for business hosting on an annual, biennial, or triennial basis, but shared hosting packages also have monthly, quarterly, and semi-annual billing options.

U.S. dollars, euros, and Indian rupees are accepted as payment currencies, and the payment methods include credit/debit card, Razorpay, and PayUmoney. Once you’ve paid, you get 15 days to change your mind and request a full refund.

HostAye’s 24/7 support team can be contacted by telephone, ticket, contact form, email, live chat, or WhatsApp. Although it took some time, I managed to summon a pre-sales support via the live chat channel:

While the product pages include some decent enough frequently asked questions, the knowledge base is not much use.
