Indian hosting provider Profuturehosts sells a variety of affordable hosting solutions at various worldwide locations. However, I’m put off by some placeholder text on the website and the lack of a pre-sales support response.


Overview

ProfuturehostsIt’s not clear when Indian web hosting provider Profuturehosts was established, but I can tell you that its Facebook page was created in January 2016, so it’s at least this old. I can also tell you that this host boasts about seven worldwide data centers.

Profuturehosts’ English-language website advertises shared web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS (including cloud VPS), dedicated servers, and domain services. It’s not all good news because the broken links, dummy text in places, and other inconsistencies make me wonder whether this host is everything it purports to be.

Features and Ease of Use

Profuturehosts offers 18 shared hosting plans (in single-domain, multi-domain, Linux and Windows variants), 8 reseller hosting plans (four each for Linux and Windows), 12 U.S.A. VPS plans, 10 U.S.A. SSD cloud VPS plans, and 21 dedicated servers (in Europe, the U.S.A., and India).

The four Linux shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • cPanel/EZE control panel
  • Unlimited addon, parked, and subdomains
  • 5 GB to unlimited disk space
  • 10 GB to unlimited bandwidth
  • 10 to unlimited email accounts
  • 5 MySQL databases
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate
  • PHP, Ruby, and Python support
  • SSH access
  • Cron jobs

The SSD storage and LiteSpeed webserver both contribute to faster speeds and higher reliability than you would get with the Apache webserver sitting on HDD storage.

SSH access allows you to access your server securely from anywhere in the world, and the SEO tools will help you drive traffic to your website once it’s up-and-running.

The industry-average 99.9% uptime means your website should be available almost all the time, but it’s nothing to get too excited about.

Pricing and Support

Profuturehosts’ shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay for plans in U.S. dollars or Indian rupees on monthly-to-biennial billing cycles. Although a money-back guarantee is advertised (on the reseller hosting page), the “Lorem ipsum” Latin placeholder text doesn’t inspire me with confidence.

Although you should be able to access 24/7 customer support by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat, it might not surprise you to hear that my test support ticket received no reply. In terms of self-support resources, there are only four frequently asked questions, and the knowledge base contains only 17 entries about cloud hosting:
