HTS is a software development company based in Noida, Uttar Pradesh that also offers hosting services. According to its Facebook page, it was founded in 2013. Though its website mentions a lot of hosting services on offer along with domain registration and SSL certificates, you can buy only Linux and Windows shared hosting services. To date, the company has hosted 4852 websites, registered 1250 domains, and served 2698 clients. The website of HTS supports English.
Features and Ease of Use
HTS offers 8 shared hosting plans (4 each for Linux and Windows). Its 4 Linux shared hosting plans come with
- 1-unlimited hosted websites
- cPanel/Plesk control panel
- 10GB-100GB storage
- 50GB-unlimited data transfer
- 1-10 MySQL databases
- 5-20 email accounts
Since a one-click installer is made available, you can easily install popular CMSes without needing any technical expertise. As the company also offers weekly data backups for archiving files or folders, you can easily restore them, if needed. HTS’s remote server stores a maximum of two weeks of backups.
HTS mentions delivering 100% security for your hosting and credentials. However, without revealing the steps it has taken or the tools it uses to ensure this, its claim sounds hollow. The company also mentions delivering upgraded website performance but again, it remains silent on how it ensures this. I find such claims without backing them up properly a big disappointment.
Pricing and Support
Shared hosting plans of HTS are dirt cheap. You can use Visa or Mastercard to pay for these plans in INR. Available billing periods are annual, biennial, and triennial with about 20% and 30% price discounts offered for biennial and triennial billing cycles respectively.
HTS offers a thirty-day money-back guarantee on all new web hosting accounts.
The company claims to offer 24/7 customer support via phone, email, live chat, and an online contact form. However, I found its live chat unavailable when I tried. Though I was able to submit my pre-sales questions, I didn’t get a reply.
With multiple informative articles, the blog of HTS is a good place to check out if you need some help with decision making about which type of hosting would suit you. However, with pretty basic posts and no tutorials, it won’t offer much self-help, I believe.
