While Magic Web India started out in 2008 offering budget web solutions, it has now become a fully-fledged provider of all kinds of web hosting and related services. Indeed, it claims to be a one-stop-shop for innovative yet cost-effective solutions, including web hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, domain services, SSL certificates, and more.
Magic Web India uses Tier 4 data centers, and its website is in English.

The Softaculous one-click installer provides access to a plethora of popular programs — WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, and more — which you can use to build your web presence without having to be a designer or developer. At the other end of the expertise spectrum, the ionCube loader will help prevent your PHP code from being modified or copied.
For security, the SiteLock security solution provides all-round malware protection with immediate notification.
For heavy-traffic websites, Magic Web India’s scalable Grid Hosting means you don’t need to worry about server resource limitations. It comes with a package specially designed for e-commerce.
Pricing and Support
Magic Web India’s Linux shared hosting packages are cheap. You can pay in Indian rupees or U.S. dollars via various methods on monthly or annual billing cycles (or biennially for Windows plans). Note that the published prices are based on the longer billing cycles, so you can expect to pay higher rates for monthly billing.
The 30-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about a long billing cycle because you can get out early. And there was a 50% dedicated server discount to be had at the time of writing this review.
This company’s 24/7 customer support team can be contacted by telephone, ticket, fax, online form, or live chat. I’m pleased to report that I got immediate answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
