Ever since its inception in 2011, Indian hosting provider HostJinni has offered a wide variety of hosting services, including Linux and Windows shared web hosting, reseller web hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and cloud servers.
This ISO 9001-2015 certified company is also ICANN accredited and has more than 8,500 satisfied customers. According to its LinkedIn page, HostJinni hosts more than 10,000 domains and has over 300 employees. The vendor’s website supports English, but its client area supports twenty-five additional languages.
Features and Ease of Use
HostJinni offers four Linux shared hosting plans that feature:
- 100% guaranteed server uptime
- 1 GB to unlimited web space
- 5 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- One to unlimited websites
- Free cPanel control panel
- Five to unlimited email accounts and subdomains
- One to unlimited MySQL databases
- A free top-level domain for life
Hosting plans come with the Softaculous installer that facilitates the installation of several popular applications. Alternatively, the website builder will help you create your website with no technical knowledge required. Customers looking to set up online stores instead can benefit from this provider’s e-commerce hosting plans that are optimized for osCommerce, PrestaShop, Magento, and more.
HostJinni’s high-speed servers use SSD storage that is much faster and more reliable than standard SATA drives. These “green” servers are built using energy-efficient components, and due to its unique server setup, HostJinni saves an average of 1,994,100 watts of energy (or “one tree”) per server per year.
Besides Linux shared hosting, HostJinni offers four Windows shared hosting plans, eight reseller hosting plans (four each for Linux and Windows), 20 VPS hosting plans (ten of each), six cloud servers (three of each), and fourteen dedicated servers (eight for Linux and six for Windows). The VPS servers include double RAM and double CPU cores at no extra cost.
Pricing and Support
HostJinni’s shared hosting plans are cheap, and you can pay for them in U.S. dollars or Indian rupees via PayPal, credit/debit cards, NetBanking (Indian banks only), online money transfer, cash deposit, and other methods.
Available billing cycles are annual, biennial, and triennial, with the Windows plans providing an additional biannual billing cycle. You get a 30-day money-back guarantee, with your refund reduced by the payment gateway charges of 500 USD or 10% (whichever is greater).
HostJinni’s 24/7 customer service team can be contacted by telephone, ticket, live chat, or email. I was pleased to receive a rapid reply when I tried the live chat channel:
For self-support, HostJinni provides a knowledge base, F.A.Q. page, and several YoutTube videos.
