Indian host Hostkarle provides feature-rich hosting plans at competitive prices. I found its pre-sales support to be responsive, but its advertised VPS plans lead you to a sister website.

Overview

Hostkarle

Indian web hosting company Hostkarle has been based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat since 2015. Whether you want shared web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, or dedicated servers, you’ll find it all here along with domain registration and SSL certificates.

Hostkarle’s website is in English, but its client area (comprising the shopping cart and knowledge base) supports 25 additional languages.

Features and Ease of Use

Hostkarle offers six Linux shared hosting plans, four reseller hosting plans, four SSD VPS plans (which will take you to this company’s sister site), two KVM VPS (which were “out of stock” when writing this review), and five unmanaged dedicated server plans.

With the shared web hosting plans, you get:

  • One to unlimited hosted websites
  • cPanel control panel
  • 10 GB to 200 GB SSD storage
  • 150 GB to 2 TB bandwidth
  • Unlimited emails and databases
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate
  • Daily backups

To help you create your web presence without technical knowledge, Hostkarle provides the Softaculous installer for WordPress, CMS, and other apps. And as an alternative to a CMS-basked website, you can use the SitePad website builder. Shared hosting plans also come with Restore Manager (which lets you backup and restore your cPanel accounts) and the cPguard server security addon.

Global website loading speeds are improved by the free CDN, and performance is also enhanced by the Lite Speed Web Server and SSD storage (which is also more reliable than traditional HDD storage). Although you get a 99.9% uptime guarantee, I found the actual 30-day uptime to be higher at 99.976%.

VPS and dedicated servers allow full root access for complete control of your server, and all servers are protected by powerful DDoS protection.

Pricing and Support

Hostkarle’s shared hosting plans are cheap, and you can get a free.com domain with the Business and VIP shared hosting plans. You can pay for plans in U.S. dollars or Indian rupees on monthly to triennial billing cycles via various methods (PayPal, debit/credit card, net banking, or the Paytm digital wallet). The 7-day money-back guarantee, in my opinion, is too short to accurately assess the services.

You can contact this company’s 24/7 customer support via toll-free telephone, support ticket, live chat, or email. I received quick answers to my queries via live chat:

For self-help resources, you can head to Hostkarle’s blog or knowledge base, but the latter includes only four articles. The network status page tells you the server uptime for the previous one, seven, and thirty days.
