Indian web host Hostchilly offers a straightforward set of super-cheap SSD shared hosting and VPS plans.

Overview

Hostchilly-overview1Hostchilly is fine, but fine is not good enough. While Hostchilly is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.

Hostchilly was established in 2017 by Hostchilly IT Solutions group. It’s based in Punjab (India), and it offers a variety of web hosting and VPS plans along with domain registration and SSL certificates. The company also provides an automated website backup solution with CodeGuard.

Hostchilly’s main website is in English, and – in common with many hosting providers – its support site can be switched into 25 additional languages.

Features and Ease of Use

Hostchilly offers four SSD shared hosting plansMini, Economic, Business, and Ultimate – which differ in terms of disk space (10-300 GB), bandwidth (100 GB-unlimited), the number of websites you can host (1-unlimited), and the number of subdomains and email accounts (2-unlimited for both).

You can easily upgrade to a higher plan whenever you want, and with all the shared hosting plans you get:

  • LiteSpeed Web Server
  • Free cPanel control panel
  • Daily data backup
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL
  • Free migration
  • One-click script installer
  • 99.9% uptime SLA

You also get DDoS protection (to safeguard your network against distributed denial-of-service attacks) and an inbuilt CDN service (to make your website load many times faster).

In addition to its shared hosting offerings, Hostchilly also offers four reseller hosting plans, four cloud VPS plans, and four “DMCA ignored” hosting plans. The VPS plans provide full root access so you can access your server via SSH to perform tasks such as upgrading the operating system, restoring databases, or installing packages.

Pricing and Support

Hostchilly’s shared hosting plans are dirt cheap, even with 18% VAT added, and you can often get them even cheaper by checking out the promotional codes on the company’s ‘offers’ page. At the checkout, you can upgrade some of the free features – such as the SSL certificate, SiteLock security, and CodeGuard backups – to enhanced paid versions.

Plans are payable in EUR/GBP/INR/USD on monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, and triennial billing cycles by PayPal, credit/debit card, NEFT transfer, and various Indian payment gateways.

Hostchilly offers a 15-day money-back guarantee that gives you two weeks to decide if this really is the host for you. You can claim your refund by sending an email or submitting a support ticket, but the refunded amount will be subject to certain reductions such as installation fees, custom software license fees, or the real cost of your free domain (if any).

24/7 technical support can be accessed by telephone or the ticket system (from the customer control panel). Unfortunately, I received no response when I tried an email approach as a prospective customer.

If you want to try supporting yourself, you can refer to the knowledge base, but it contains only a handful of articles:

How much does Hostchilly cost?
Hostchilly offers multiple plans priced highest to lowest. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which Hostchilly plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Hostchilly can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from Hostchilly here.
How good is Hostchilly’s customer support?
Hostchilly is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Hostchilly being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
