Indian host Jumbohost was established in 2016 to provide reliable hosting solutions at affordable prices. It appears to meet this brief, but I’d feel better if I’d been able to summon a pre-sales support response.

Overview

JumbohostIndian web hosting company Jumbohost was established in 2016 to provide fast, reliable web hosting at affordable prices. It has since seen tremendous growth, and it currently counts 500 customers that rely on its services.

Besides selling web hosting solutions, it also helps customers build beautiful websites, and its own website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Jumbohost’s web hosting solutions include these features as standard:

  • cPanel control panel
  • Unlimited monthly bandwidth
  • Free Comodo SSL certificates
  • SitePad website builder
  • Softaculous one-click app installer
  • Dedicated IP addresses
  • Cloudflare CDN
  • DDoS protection

The programming language and software frameworks support depends on whether you pick a Linux or Windows hosting plan, but you can expect to find any or all of PHP, ASP.NET, Java, and Node.js. Supported databases are MySQL and (for Windows hosting) MS SQL, and weekly website backups help protect your data.

As an alternative to shared hosting, virtual private servers (VPS) use KVM virtualization technology. These servers have super-fast SSD storage, they rely on Intel Xeon processors, and they sit in state-of-the-art German data centers.

You get a 99.9% or 99.99% uptime guarantee, depending on the plan you pick.

Pricing and Support

Jumbohost’s Indian rupee prices are pretty low, which aligns with its ambition of providing affordable hosting services. You have to pay for plans annually, but the 30-day money-back guarantee gives you the chance to get out early if anything goes wrong.

You can contact this company via live chat, telephone, ticket, or email. While you should expect to get rapid responses via the live chat channel (but I didn’t), I have to tell you that my attempts to make contact by email and ticket were unsuccessful. For self-support, you can refer to the blog (not updated since December 2018) and the few frequently asked questions:

Jumbohost

How much does Jumbohost cost?
Jumbohost 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 Jumbohost plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Jumbohost 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 Jumbohost here.
How good is Jumbohost’s customer support?
Jumbohost is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Jumbohost 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.

Worse Experiance

I purchased a domain for my company which jumbohost registered after 2 days after cleared payment. The domain Registration was fake it was already registered and the jumbohost website showed as not registered. No refund, No Support, No Response to phone calls and Mails. I hosted 5 Websites On Jumbo Plan and One day websites crashed and there was no response after contacting them. Poor Company i have ever seen. Unprofessional

Very low quality hosting and technical support

My website was always in offline/online mode during the time I had hosting with JUMBOHOST. Even their technical support is very low quality, high severity cases will not get even reply in a week. I would recommend to not go with this company for hosting.
