In this review, I see how Indian company StackArc stacks up as a provider of Linux virtual servers, dedicated servers, and colocation services.

Overview

StackArc

StackArc Technologies LLC uses 340+ servers in U.S.A. and India to power the websites and web applications of more than 1200 customers. Whether Linux KVM VPS, Windows VPS, or dedicated servers, StackArc’s low-cost hosting solutions are ideal for customers looking for a balance between performance and price.

Features and Ease of Use

StackArc

StackArc has invested in servers with the latest Xeon processors and premium HDD storage. Connected to a True Gigabit network, these servers are fast and stable. If you doubt me, take an RDP trial or a run a speed test to see for yourself.

If you’re familiar with it, you’ll be pleased to see that the cPanel control panel is provided… at a price. Once you’ve paid for your license (which would often be included for free by other hosts), you can start creating email accounts and databases. You can also view website statistics and install WordPress for free.

From my experience, I know how hard it can sometimes be to migrate to a new host. Even if you’re using the familiar cPanel control panel, you still have to take the time to register a domain, create a root directory, configure DNS, and import your files via FTP. Fortunately, you can call on StackArc’s free website migration service to take the strain instead.

Similarly, not everyone has the time or skill to manage a server, which is where StarkArc’s managed services come in handy. Technicians will take care of regular updates and periodic hardware replacement so you can concentrate on your core business.

Security is some of the best in India, and all hosting plans provide full DDoS protection, so hackers and cybercriminals will be wasting their time when trying to take down your website(s). At the account level, you can password-protect your critical website directories, integrate SSL certificates, and enable spam protection.

When shared hosting isn’t sufficient for your needs, you might look at a Linux or Windows VPS. Cheaper than dedicated servers, Stack Arc’s virtual servers ensure you get the right amount of resources for your web projects, and you can choose yours to be located in India or the U.S.A.

Pricing and Support

StackArc offers a low-cost service on various billing cycles, and first-time customers can get 50% off (at the time of writing). You also get a 14-day money-back guarantee which, although shorter than the more usual 30-day refund window, at least gives you two weeks to change your mind. When you order a dedicated server or VPS, you can specify the location (U.S.A. or India), and pay conveniently using your credit card or PayPal.

Out of the various ways to contact this company, I took to live chat to ask about website migration timescales:

If you go looking for self-support resources, you might be disappointed by StackArc’s almost-empty knowledge base.
