Founded in 2015, Nogics is a relatively new Indian hosting company, but they already have over one thousand customers. With multiple offices in India, and with distributors around the world, their mission is to provide top quality customer service at affordable prices. Their website and support are available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Nogics offers web hosting, telecoms, and e-commerce services. Their shared hosting plans come with the following core features:
- 99.9% uptime
- Domain registration available
- From five to unlimited add-on domains
- SSL certificates available
- From 10GB to 40GB SSD disk space
- From 25GB to unlimited bandwidth
This vendor’s infrastructure is located in India and Germany, and for faster content delivery their servers are connected with dedicated Gigabit capacity lines. All plans support 1Gbps speed, and they use SSDs that are up to ten times faster than traditional hard disk drives. Nogics commits to a 99% uptime and uses the reliable and easy-to-use cPanel control panel.
Whilst they offer a range of hosting services (dedicated servers, virtual private servers, and reseller hosting), for everyday website owners they offer a good selection of shared hosting plans with very reasonable resource levels. The four tiers of shared hosting are Basic (10GB disk space, 25GB bandwidth), Master (20GB disk space, 50GB bandwidth), Xpert (30GB, 100GB bandwidth, and Accent (40GB disk space, unlimited bandwidth). The number of subdomains, add-on domains, FTP accounts, and email accounts all increase according to the size of the plan.
All shared hosting plans come with the Softaculous one-click installer, full DDoS protection, and the latest version of cPanel. Also, customers can choose between IPv4 and IPv6 and can order additional IP addresses as required (although there may be an extra monthly charge). The features are definitely geared towards non-developers because the shared plans do not support PHP or advanced coding languages.
Pricing and Support
Considering the high resource quotas, the prices are quite good. Most everyday website owners will be quite happy with their Basic package that comes with 10GB disk space and 25GB bandwidth. Domain registration and SSL certificates cost extra, but the setup is free.
Plans can be bought on monthly or annual terms, and there is a good discount for purchasing one year up front. If you don’t want to make this much commitment, you can go for the monthly option or take reassurance in the seven-day money-back guarantee. You might also be happy to hear that you can up or downgrade at any time.
24/7 customer service can be accessed by telephone, live chat, and email. There is no knowledge base on their main website, but there is a client-only area that may contain more information. My only slight concern is that I have been left waiting on live chat for an operator, despite them appearing to be online. That said, they claim to have an average ticket response time of thirty minutes.
