Indian host, HostingSpell, doesn't sell everything that's advertised on its website. However, the avilable cPanel shared hosting plans are dirt-cheap, and they come with prompt customer support.

Overview

HostingSpellSince starting out in 2015, HostingSpell has offered feature-rich solutions to help clients establish a professional online presence. HostingSpell’s English-language website advertises cPanel Hosting, DirectAdmin Hosting (coming soon), and Reseller Hosting (coming soon). Some of the links at the bottom of the page, for Cloud Hosting and VPS Servers (their words), don’t seem to work at all.

Features and Ease of Use

The six cPanel shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • 1 GB to unlimited storage
  • 10 GB to unlimited bandwidth
  • 1 to 6 websites
  • cPanel control panel
  • One  to unlimited MySQL databases
  • Imunify360 security
  • Automated backups

The cPanel control panel lets you manage all aspects of your hosting, and the incorporated Softaculous installer helps you install a plethora of popular content management and other applications, including WordPress (for blogging) or Magento (for e-comerce). Once you website is up-and-running, the free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate will keep your visitors’ communications secure.

Hosted websites sit on the CloudLinux operating system that isolates you from the adverse effects of other hosted users, and you can get peace of mind about your data safety by taking the CodeGuard backup solutions that allow daily backups with one-click restores.

Pricing and Support

HostingSpell’s shared hosting packages are particularly cheap. You can pay annually in U.S. dollars or Indian rupees by Instamojo or PayPal, and you can even buy with Bitcoins. The two-day money-back guarantee is shockingly short, and it gives you only 48 hours to decide if you made the right hosting decision.

24/7 customer support can be summoned by telephone, ticket, email, live chat, WhatsApp, or online contect form. Since the self-support knowledge base is bare, it’s a good thing that I was able to get immediate answers to my initial questions via the live chat channel:

How much does HostingSpell cost?
HostingSpell offers plans from $0 to $2. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which HostingSpell plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. HostingSpell 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 HostingSpell here.
How good is HostingSpell’s customer support?
HostingSpell is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of HostingSpell 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.

They provide unbelievable service and support.

Support via tickets takes like 2-5 min, literally, it works like if it's chatting platform. WhatsApp Chat and Live Chat there to shorten your small query times. Their plans are cheapest as well as 100% Uptime from beginning with quality of service, definitely recommend this guys! :)
