Inway Hosting is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
Born in India back in 2005, Inway Hosting is an all-inclusive hosting provider that specializes in shared hosting (for both small and large businesses), cloud hosting, CMS hosting, reseller hosting, and CMS hosting.
Its website is clean, well-designed, informative, and available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Inway Hosting sells two levels of shared hosting — Unlimited Hosting and Corporate Hosting — with disk storage being the most notable difference between them. The Unlimited Hosting plans offer unlimited disk space, as you would expect, whereas the Corporate Hosting plans do not. Apart from a few other minor differences, all the shared hosting plans provide the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- SSD storage
- Daily backups (except for basic Unlimited Hosting plan)
- Website builder
- Free SSL certificate (except for basic Unlimited Hosting plan)
- Cloudflare CDN
All the shared hosting packages are managed via the cPanel control panel, which provides a user-friendly interface for managing all aspects of your website. The control panel includes the Softaculous installer that helps you install a CMS or other app with a single click. Choose from WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, and many more.
If you don’t have the technical skills or time to design and code a website from scratch, you’ll be pleased to discover that Inway offers a website builder with 800+ templates and a simple drag-and-drop interface.
The Cloudflare CDN relies on a global network of servers to speed up page loading (by caching content) and secure your website(s) against external threats.
Pricing and Support
All shared hosting prices are relatively affordable compared with international competitors, but the Corporate Hosting plans are understandably more expensive than the Unlimited Hosting plans. You can pay by PayPal, check, credit card, or NetBanking.
You can choose to be billed annually, biennially, or triennially, with discounts for biennial and triennial terms and a free domain with the three-year option. You’ll feel better about signing up when you hear that there is a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Although Inway’s website is informative, the link to its Help page leads nowhere. However, the WHMCompleteSolution-powered client site contains an incredibly comprehensive knowledge base.
You can contact support via various communication channels, including live chat (not 24/7), telephone, ticket, and email. I received a response less than 24 hours after submitting a test ticket, and it answered all my questions thoroughly.
