Natsav is a web hosting company based in India. It offers shared hosting, dedicated servers, cloud Virtual Private Servers (VPS), email hosting, and SSL certificates. Its website is available in English only. The company’s servers are housed in data centers that are located in France, Germany, Lithuania, Netherlands, Florida USA, Carolina USA, and India.
Features and Ease of Use
NatSav offers Linux and Windows shared hosting plans that are suitable for small to medium-sized business websites. Customers that choose any one of the plans get to enjoy the following:
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Daily Backup
- One, 30, or unlimited domains per account
- 500GB or unlimited bandwidth
- Anywhere from 10GB to unlimited storage space
NatSav uses RAID 1 data mirroring so that your data is on two sets of hard drives. What this does for average people like us is to keep our website online even if one of the drives have a hardware fault. The good array continues to operate for as long as it’s functioning and it can remain online even when Natsav is replacing the bad drive.
You can use Magento, WordPress, Drupal, and most of the popular CMSes on your account. Installing them though is not easy. You’ll have to upload the files to your cPanel file manager on Linux hosting, create databases and configure them to connect with your files and handle every other setting.
Natsav supports PHP for programming, but this is about the same thing with every other web host offering Linux shared hosting. Those supporting Python are few in-between. Unfortunately, Natsav doesn’t fall in the category.
If you don’t want to be affected by the actions of the website visitors of another user on your server or by a security breach on the user’s website, or if you need more resources and stability, VPS is the way to go. With the virtualized environment, you get a fantastic CPU, RAM, and bandwidth that only you get to use and you aren’t affected by what the others on the server do.
Pricing and Support
Natsav’s billing starts from one year period for the shared hosting plans. The VPS and dedicated server plans allow payment for a one-month duration and above.
Beware that on the first shared hosting plan, there’s a slash in the price for the introductory rate. It’s not so noticeable if you don’t pay attention to it. The fantastic thing is that both the introductory rate and renewal rate are low cost for the features on offer.
The other two shared hosting plans don’t have this. Same introductory and renewal rates and they are low-cost. The VPS and dedicated server plans have different renewal and introductory rates across most plans, but the renewal rates are low-priced when compared with competitors.
All payments are secured. You can pay with American Express, MasterCard and Visa card. There’s a 10-day money-back guarantee for shared hosting.
There’s no knowledge base. Customer support is available 24/7 through phone, email, and live chat. I sent an email and received a reply a few hours later.
