Features and Ease of Use
This company offers a wide range of services, including shared hosting. These plans, as standard, come with the following core features:
- 100% uptime guarantee on U.K., U.S., and German servers, with Indian-based servers at 99.6%
- Free domain registration with most plans
- One, two, or unlimited add-on domains
- SSL certificates available for purchase
- From 1GB to 100GB SSD disk space
- Unmetered bandwidth
Techsys Ltd collocates its servers in multiple data centers worldwide. Although it’s not as good as owning their own center, customers benefit from being able to choose the server location that best suits their requirements.
The uptime is guaranteed to be 100% in all server locations excluding India, which has a 99.6% uptime guarantee. There’s a simple SLA on the homepage which states if you have an issue, the company will resolve it in an hour. Three or more issues in one month and you get a 50% refund.
There are a ton of tools for beginners, for example, all plans come with a free website builder, with more than 2,000 free website templates. There’s also a one-click installer for more than 150 programs.
In all shared hosting plans, experts get unlimited MySQL databases, phpMyAdmin access, support for programming languages PHP 5 (not the far faster version 7), Ruby on Rails, Perl, and Python. To sweeten the deal, there is SSH access and cron jobs for scheduling regular scripts.
Pricing and Support
The prices are inline with, if a little cheaper than local and international competitors, especially when you consider the resource allocations. All plans come with unmetered bandwidth and even the base plan comes with 1GB of SSD storage. Domains are free in most packages.
Plans can be bought in one-month or one-year terms, with no discount for purchasing longer upfront. Domain email accounts and dedicated IPs are added costs in the checkout flow, but the prices are standard.
It’s nice to see a 30-day money-back guarantee on all plans, so you can get started relatively risk free.
If you’re the kind of person who likes solving problems on your own, there’s a good knowledge base. Other than that, you can contact Techsys Ltd 24/7/365 by creating a ticket on the website. There is live chat, however, it was offline when I contacted them.
I sent an email via the live chat window and, as you can see from the timestamp in the email, I received a response within four hours, despite it being nighttime. The member of staff was polite and helpful.
