Hostinor offers different shared hosting plans on its Indian, U.S., and U.K. servers. It uses LiteSpeed web server and offers a 15 days money-back guarantee.

Overview

Hostinor

Hostinor is an Indian hosting company founded in 2014. It provides shared hosting, cloud hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated hosting, email, domain name registration, web design, SEO services, Bulk SMS and advertising services.

Its servers are located in India, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and its website is available in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Its shared hosting is divided into four plans. You can choose to host under its Indian servers or its U.K. servers. Some of the plans offer limited resources, while there are others with “unlimited” resources. Unlimited being quoted because there’s no such thing as unlimited resources, you just need to check the terms of service or ask support what the exact limits are.

Here are some features you’ll get with the plans:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Daily backups on three plans
  • Either 10 GB or unlimited bandwidth
  • From 500MB to unlimited disk space

Hostinor uses LiteSpeed webserver which is faster and more scalable than the Apache webserver. It can handle a lot of connections easily with minimal memory consumption and CPU usage, thus, enhancing performance. The LiteSpeed caching tool is also available to accelerate the loading time of your website.

Another feature that enhances performance that this provider offers is Solid State Disk (SSD). SSDs are way better than the conventional HDDs with better performance and faster speed of performing tasks.

The unlimited Indian plan comes with the Plesk control panel. I like it and it’s easier to use than most other panels. The other shared hosting plans come with cPanel which is also a great management tool.

From the control panel, you can automatically install applications like WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla using Softaculous one-click installer. There is also the free SitePro site builder to help you build your website or blog from scratch and without knowledge in web design.

For programmers, Hostinor supports PHP, Python, Perl, CGI, and FastCGI. Also, SSH access is available but its usage is restricted. To be able to use it, you’ll have to contact support. Another feature that you can use is the crontab; you can use Cron jobs to schedule tasks and perform automated functions.

Pricing and Support

The prices on all shared hosting plans are low. Also, it sometimes offers discounts and special offers to customers so you might get lower prices on its plans. One downside though is that the subscription period is 12 months; there’s no one-month billing.

It has various payment options including credit/debit card, net banking, wallets, and UPI. Hostinor offers 15-day money-back guarantee on all shared plans and also offers free migration from another hosting provider.

Support is available through WhatsApp, email and a call back request form. I sent an email to customer support during the weekend and I got a response within two hours.
