Features and Ease of Use
Shoutcoder’s hosting is categorized as Shared Hosting and Business Hosting, with three price plans in each category. There is also a Free Hosting plan with limited features.
As the name suggests, the Business Hosting plans are tailored to the needs of growing businesses with more demanding websites than would be supported by the regular Shared Hosting plans. You get good 99.95% uptime, SSD storage, a free domain, and more memory and monthly bandwidth.
Nevertheless, all hosting plans include these features:
- Regular backups
- Free SSL certificate
- DDoS protection
- Free website builder
- Cron jobs
- cPanel control panel
- Softaculous installer
You can manage all aspects of your hosting using the industry-standard cPanel control panel. This includes handling files, FTP accounts, email accounts, domains, backup intervals, and more. Additionally, the control panel allows you to schedule Cron jobs for regularly running scripts, eliminating the need to execute them manually each time.
You can create your website with the provided website builder. It comes with many ready-made templates that you can customize via a simple drag-and-drop interface. For a CMS-backed or e-commerce website, you can use the Softaculous installer to install several popular programs — such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, PrestaShop, Typo3, or phpBB — with a single click.
Pricing and Support
Shoutcoder’s hosting packages are attractively priced, and you can pay for them on various billing cycles (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, biennially, or triennially) via various methods (debit/credit cards, Netbanking, UPI, PayTm, RazorPay, or PayPal).
Although Shoutcoder’s website alludes to a 7-day money-back guarantee, a live chat agent clarified that there is a 15-day money-back guarantee (which might even be a 30-day money-back guarantee):
Other ways to summon support are by email, telephone, or ticket. It’s a good thing that the support responses are reasonably prompt because the 15-entry knowledge base is almost bare.
