HostGoi is a recent entrant to the Indian hosting market, but it seems to have made a good start. Its prices are cheap, its self-support resources are good, and I managed to summon a pre-sales support response.


Overview

HostGoiAlthough HostGoi’s website doesn’t say when the company was founded, its social media pages suggest it has been operating since 2018. Its offered solutions include shared hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, WordPress hosting, domain registration, and SSL certificates.

Features and Ease of Use

HostGoi’s offerings include six shared hosting packages (three each for Linux and Windows), ten VPS packages (five each for Linux and Windows), 12 dedicated server packages (in India, the U.S.A., and Europe), eight reseller hosting packages (four each for Linux and Windows), and three WordPress hosting packages.

The Linux shared hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 5 GB to unlimited storage space
  • 10 GB to unlimited bandwidth
  • One to unlimited websites
  • cPanel control panel
  • One-click installer
  • LiteSpeed web server
  • 10 to unlimited email accounts
  • Five to unlimited MySQL databases
  • PHP support
  • Daily backups

Your hosted website will be secured with a free SSL certificate, to give your visitors confidence and possibly improve your search engine standing. You also get DDoS protection.

While HostGoi’s home page alludes to a 99.99% uptime guarantee (which is good), the terms-of-service and product pages refer to a lower 99.9% uptime guarantee (which is merely average for the industry).

To help build your company brand, HostGoi offers business email hosting solutions. And for team collaboration, you can get Google’s G Suite.

Pricing and Support

HostGoi’s Linux shared hosting plans are extremely cheap, and discounts of 50% (for shared hosting) and up to 90% (on reseller hosting) were available at the time of this review. Pay in Indian rupees or U.S. dollars by RazorPay, PayPal, InstaMojo, or bank transfer on billing cycles from monthly to triennial.

All packages come with a short 7-day money-back guarantee, despite a 14-day guarantee being advertised for WordPress plans. I got this clarified by customer services:

HostGoi

Besides live chat (which I tried), you can also summon 24/7 support by submitting a ticket. For self-support, there is a helpful blog and a very extensive knowledge base.

They are awesome host

HostGoi is an awesome host, I have been using their VPS hosting for 2 years, no issue, and support is always best whenever needed. So most of the time they fix the issues which mostly caused by my less server skills and i do mess the server, but they never being rude support wisely.

I purchased their Swift web hosting plan

I purchased their Swift web hosting plan 6 months back and whenever I face any simplest of issue I contact them via live chat option. The kind of support I am getting is unbelievable. No other web hosting company cares about your website, once it is live, but this is not the case with HostGoi. They are ready to provide you for any simplest of issue and even their support members are available in the midnight to solve your issue.
