Overview

hostcats main

India-based HostCats is a division of Seeknext IT Solutions, which has more than ten years of experience in the hosting industry. This people-oriented provider focusses on helping small and medium-sized businesses prosper by advancing their online presence. It currently counts 40,000+ hosted websites, 15,000+ registered domains, and 2,500+ customers among its achievements to date.

Features and Ease of Use

HostCats

HostCats offers Windows and Linux hosting plans, domains, web development, and other related services. This people-oriented company takes a transparent approach to describing its offerings. Here are some of the features provided by the shared hosting packages:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Free website transfers
  • Supports multi-domain hosting
  • No overloaded servers
  • Free monthly backups
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates
  • Free personalized email

The Linux and Windows shared hosting packages have four plans each that come with pretty much the same resource allocations. The lowest “Starter” plan gives you 5 GB disk space, 10 GB bandwidth, five email accounts, and hosting for just one website. The highest “Corporate” plan comes with hosting for up to four websites, fifty email accounts, 50 GB bandwidth, and 25 GB disk space.

You hosting accounts and websites are managed via cPanel (for Linux) or Plesk (for Windows) control panels. These popular, user-friendly control panels automate many hosting management tasks so that even beginner webmasters can perform essential functions with just a few clicks. They also feature the Softaculous installer with scripts for many popular programs such as WordPress, osCommerce, phpBB, and Joomla.

Pricing and Support

HostCat’s hosting plans are pretty cheap, starting at less than a dollar a month.

I swear that when I first looked at this provider, it was offering a very generous 100 days to test its services, with a 100% refund if you’re not entirely happy. In any case, it definitely does offer a 30-day money-back guarantee to new customers.

You can pay for plans via many different methods on one-, two-, or three-year terms with discounts for longer-term commitments. As if this isn’t enough, HostCats has additional offers to save you money, including “combo” offers that combine hosting, domain registration, and web design.

HostCats provides exceptional ticket-based 24/7 support with rapid response times of about 30 minutes. You can also contact the company by phone and email, or you can refer to the knowledge base for self-support.
