An Indian-based web hosting company, HostNamaste provides web hosting, VPS, domains, and dedicated servers for both small and big websites alike. Before you make any final decisions, you should check out Hostinger’s cheap plans.


Overview

hostnamaste main

HostNamaste has been in business since March 2018. It is pretty young in terms of web hosting experience but has already made very remarkable achievements. As of June 2018, it is recorded to have secured 1,000 customers and its current statistics as of now stand at over 50,000+ hosted websites and over 3,000+ deployed servers.

It has a global presence in five strategic locations worldwide, and maintains a multilingual enabled website which can easily be accessed in English by default.

We actually interviewed an executive at HostNamaste, and here’s what we learned.

Features and Ease of Use

HostNamaste provides reseller and shared web hosting solutions under its broad web hosting services. Its cPanel shared hosting has four plans which generally include the following value-added features:

  • Free unlimited Comodo SSL certificates
  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • SSD storage
  • Automatic daily backups
  • Attracta SEO tools

The cPanel shared hosting features state-of-the-art hardware and software combinations to ensure your websites have the highest speed possible. To begin with, the hosting is powered by CloudLinuxOS with LiteSpeed web servers and CloudFlare, and also uses highly redundant and most recent RAID ready Intel Xeon processors.

The hosting package also comes with the user-friendly cPanel control panel. With its simple and easy to use interface, even a total beginner will comfortably manage and control their hosting environment. It’s simply flexible and easy to use. Additionally, you will also find it much easier to build a professional looking website by quick installations of over 425+ applications with the Softaculous one-click installer.

Pricing and Support

In comparison to its primary competitors, this vendor’s shared hosting packages are much cheaper and comes with 10% recurring discounts. Although it features very low web storage, it also provides free domains, free cPanel-to-cPanel website migrations, allows for multi-domain hosting (except for the entry-level plan), and free SSL certificates.

Apparently, there are also Windows shared hosting packages found on the billing page on the category section. These are powered by Plesk Onyx hosting and come with Plesk Application Vault, MSSQL/MySQL databases, ASP.NET, and PHP scripting support. Its plans bear similar price tags as those of the Linux-based packages.

The Windows shared hosting plans come with monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual billing cycles whereas the cPanel one is confined to yearly terms only. You can pay for any given plan via PayPal, credit cards, Razorpay, wire, or bank transfers. For quality assurance and inspection, you can take advantage of the 30-day money-back guarantee and test the hosting for yourself.

HostNamaste maintains a slightly well detailed FAQ section and here you can get lots of answers to frequently and commonly asked questions. However, the same can’t be said for the knowledge base, which doesn’t provide enough information and is at times inaccessible due to internal server errors.

This vendor also offers 24/7 friendly and knowledgeable customer support through live chat and ticketing system. The tickets, however, have been categorized according to specific departments. I tested the live chat support, on a late evening, and greatly benefited from the almost immediate and query-specific responses. Indeed the agents are very knowledgeable about their products and are always ready to assist.

How much does HostNamaste cost?
HostNamaste offers plans from $1 to $3. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which HostNamaste plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. HostNamaste 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 HostNamaste here.
How good is HostNamaste’s customer support?
HostNamaste is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of HostNamaste 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.

Hostnamaste OpenVZ VPS hosting rocks!

Hostnamaste OpenVZ VPS hosting rocks! Some time ago I decided to change my plan and contacted their sales for that. In 15 minutes I got their reply and after my confirmation I got my new VPS plan. They adjusted all credits to my new subscription. I started with more expensive plan and then decided to continue with less expensive one and to my surprise they allowed me to do that without any problem and helped a lot. This is not typical situation - I assume most of host would resume to do that for me. I like them!

Amazing Dedicated Server Provider

HostNamaste is absolutely the best dedicated server provider in USA. We have been with them for more than 6 months now, they never failed us. Services are excellent, and uptime is 100% and they go extra mile to help clients. Best of luck guys and keep up the good work.

Bottom line on HostNamaste

HostNamaste is a fairly young Indian web hosting vendor offering affordable shared web hosting packages, featuring high performing hardware for small and big businesses.

HostNamaste might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”

Pros

  • Features blazing fast SSD
  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Free SSL certificates available

Cons

  • No phone and email support
  • Comparatively low web storage
