Skylark Hosting is known as a provider of cheap hosting solutions for business enterprises in India and beyond.

Skylark Hosting operates stable and redundant Intel Xeon servers that deliver high performance to support the needs of businesses worldwide. The hosting firm uses blazing fast SSD and SATA III hardware coupled with LSWS and Cloudlinux, ensuring super fast page loading speed of the websites it hosts.
Skylark Hosting solutions come with a choice of either Windows or Linux OS platforms. Its shared web hosting solution is offered in four levels: Pro2k, Prime, Turbo, and Supernova. Pro2k is the starter shared hosting plan suitable for hosting a single website. It comes with 2GB disk space and 100GB monthly bandwidth. However, this hosting plan (at the time of writing) was out of stock, perhaps due to its high demand.
Supernova is this vendor’s advanced shared hosting plan and comes with “everything unlimited”; from unlimited disk space to unlimited bandwidth and unlimited SSL certificates.
Skylark Hosting performs automatic daily backups of its client’s website data. The vendor constantly takes daily backup copies of its customer’s website database and weekly backups of the user’s website files. The backups are then stored safely where they can easily be restored in case of data loss.
Pricing and Support
Skylark Hosting solutions are pretty cheap and come packed with advanced features. The hosting plans include flexible monthly and annual billing cycles. Moreover, the prices of these plans are listed in U.S. dollars and Indian rupees.
Skylark Hosting commits to provide a 99.9% uptime network guarantee. If unable to meet this SLA, the vendor has agreed to compensate its customers according to its SLA standards policy. The vendor informed me that it does not offer a money-back guarantee on any of its products yet it mentions on its website a 15-day money-back guarantee for first-time customers.
You can contact Skylark Hosting technical support staff via telephone, live chat, email, or ticketing system. The technical support team is available 24/7/365 and goes out of its way to help its customers solve their hosting-related issues.
Skylark Hosting has a knowledge base on its website, however, it only has two tutorials.
