Protech started out as a software and web development company in 2006, and it registered as a web hosting company in 2013. This Indian host proudly powers more than 10,000 websites, from simple blogs to portals and e-commerce stores with significant traffic. It also offers SEO, web design, and consultancy services to individuals and businesses.
Protech’s website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Protech’s shared hosting plans sit on servers with dual hexacore processors connected to ultrafast SSDs, so you should have no worries about website performance. Customers enjoy enhanced security courtesy of Arrow Shield, one of the best intrusion detection and prevention systems on the market. It works jointly with DoS shields to keep attackers at bay, and it scans your website(s) for 14,000+ vulnerabilities and alerts you when you need to patch them.
Signing in to the cPanel control panel opens up a set of administration features plus the Softaculous installer that helps you deploy websites, forums, galleries, and online stores with just a few clicks. Every process is automated.
Hosted customers also enjoy the following features:
- Unlimited subdomains
- Web-based email accounts
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Unlimited preinstall scripts
- 24/7 support
Over the years, I have built hundreds of websites on different platforms using different tools. Even so, I find that a website builder such as the one provided by Protech cuts down my work by half. I can design a complete website with menus, contact forms, videos, and even Google Maps within minutes. And in this case, there are plenty of mobile-friendly templates with colorful designs to choose from.
You shouldn’t need to worry about spam and viruses because you can enable virus protection from your panel to protect your email and drives against malicious applications.
If shared hosting falls short of your expectations, you can scale to either a VPS or a managed or unmanaged server.
Pricing and Support
Protech provides low-cost shared hosting with lots of features, even if you pick the basic plan. My main reservation is that the 7-day guarantee is too short, and it comes with so many preconditions that you’re only likely to get back half the amount you paid.
When it comes to self-support, the link to the FAQ page is broken, and the links to the video tutorials and the knowledge base lead nowhere. On the plus side, I was able to summon support via live chat.
