11 Best Web Hosting Companies for Websites in India - Expert Reviews

Daren Low

Editor in Chief

Choosing the right web hosting company for your website is probably the most crucial part of your online business' life. If your website is loading too slowly or the server is down too often, you will lose a lot of visitors, and your marketing spending and efforts were wasted for nothing.

Did you know that Google recommends a loading time of just 200ms? That is not a lot of time, and most hosting companies can't make that happen - and guess who is paying the price for it? Yes, exactly: you.

On the other hand, a top-notch hosting provider can be extremely expensive, which can still be worth a multimillion-dollar webshop, but probably not for the average website owner.

Luckily, we have analyzed hundreds of hosting providers for you and in this article we will list our top 11 recommendations for India. We will also explain what to consider when selecting the right one and which company you should choose depending on your website's parameters and personal needs.

Hostinger is currently our #1 recommendation for any type of small to medium size websites. Their prices are unbeatable, but the service quality is surprisingly high. They offer outstanding server speed even for the more basic packages and the 99,99% uptime guarantee ensures you don't lose any crucial visitors. 

If you only want to host one website and expect less than 100.000 monthly visitors, the absolute lowest price you can get comes with their 4 year plan (₹ 59/ month). But if you don't feel confident with such a long period, you can test them with a 1-year subscription, that will also cost you only ₹99/month, which is still extremely good.

The basic packages of equally good hosting providers like Hostgator and Bluehost start at $3-4/month,  which is around 4x the price of Hostinger's!

If you would like to host multiple websites or your website starts to grow heavily, you can upgrade anytime to their most popular "Premium" package which starts at ₹119/month for the 4-year subscription and ₹229/month for the 1-year plan. 

With these packages, you get almost unlimited everything, so it's worth the money for sure! 

Also good news for Indian users, they have a local Indian website where they offer excellent customer support and in the hosting industry very rare payment options like UPI, Debit Card and Paytm.

Overall, if you are not a medium or large business, we don't see any reason why you shouldn't choose Hostinger as they clearly provide the best price/value service on the market today.

And with the 30-day money-back guarantee, you can try out their services risk-free.

Recommended for: WordPress mostly.

Overall Uptime

Average server speed

210 ms

Average server speed(in India)
220 ms

starts at $2.75/month

What we love:

  • 50 GB SSD Storage
  • Pricing is still reasonable
  • Good performance in India
  • Heavy focus on WordPress, expert customer support

With over 2 million websites hosted, this ‘Endurance International Group’ owned web hosting service company has come a long way since its existence in 2003. In fact, by 2005, it was one of the top-recommended hosting companies by Wordpress itself and has been ever since.

Today, Bluehost offers a variety of web hosting plans- Shared hosting, Managed Wordpress, Dedicated servers, eCommerce hosting, Virtual Private Servers(VPS), and reseller hosting. Of which, Shared hosting and Managed Wordpress hosting are the most popular ones given the 'Optimized for Wordpress' appeal and the needs of the majority of individuals/businesses. 

Another reason for its popularity is both web hosting plans start at a mere $2.95/month. 

For this price, you can host a primary domain name with up to 25 subdomains. You also get a free SSL certificate, free domain registration, unlimited bandwidth, and a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Additionally, the 50 GB SSD disk space is more than sufficient for most. Moreover, to build your website, you can use their integrated, easy-to-use website builder, Weebly. 

One downside, though, is, despite having a Data Center in Mumbai, India, Bluehost’s server response time is not expectedly extraordinary. In our test, we found it to be ~210ms when the site was accessed from Bangalore, which is about the same as the Google recommended 200ms. Not a deal-breaker in any sense, obviously. However, globally, the average response time was terrific at ~150ms(approx. 50ms in the US).

Overall, if your website is targeted at a global audience, Bluehost is one of the best hostings in India— It’s fast, secure, and reliable. For an Indian demographic too, it’s just a couple milliseconds slow, which can be neglected given the high-speed SSDs and free CDN that comes with any web hosting plan you choose.

Recommended for: For bigger webshops and medium-sized websites.

What we love:

  • Quality hardware
  • Optimization
  • Unmetered bandwidth
  • Incredible customer support
  • Free perks
  • The sheer value for money

As it is apparent from our Siteground review, we love them. And there are reasons it’s in this “Best hosting in India” article and will be in any “Best hosting” listicle.

What are those? Simply put, their philosophy is the opposite of Hostgator’s. Siteground focuses on quality rather than value, and in doing so, it offers both.

Starting at $3.95 per month, Siteground's hosting plans might seem a costlier option compared to others in the list, but for what it brings to the table, it’s a steal deal.

Similar to Bluehost, Siteground is also one of the three recommended hosts by Wordpress. You receive up to 10 GB of disk space and server resources to handle approx. 10,000 visitors monthly, which is more than enough, specifically for beginner bloggers/businesses.

Apart from that, it’s excellent for Wordpress CMS, fully Secure, had 100% uptime in our case(guarantees 99.9%), has extraordinarily knowledgeable & helpful technical support, and you get perks such as free SSL certificate, CDN, daily backups, etc. You don’t get a free domain name like with a few other best web hosting providers (in the list) though.

As for speeds, it’s right up there with the top ones in the world as well as India. Globally, it averages ~125 ms in server response time. In the US, it’s under 50 ms. And in India, it’s about 60 ms. Combine that with high-quality SSDs, free CDN, and multiple datacenter options, and there you have it—  may be the best website hosting company for your SMB.

Overall Uptime

Average server speed(in India)

starts at $3.92/month

What we love:

  • Unlimited SSD storage
  • Customer support
  • Free migration
  • Money back guarantee

If you are looking for a low-cost web hosting solutions but want more disk space than the other hosts (in this list) offers, A2hosting is the best hosting in India.

At the base price of ~$3.92/month, you can host your website and store as much data as you want on their SSD servers. Meaning, this host will be an ideal option if you are imagining storing a plethora of visual content on the site.

There are many other pluses as well:

  • You have an anytime money-back guarantee.
  • They offer free transfer/migrations.
  • Their customer support is friendly.
  • Their server response time in India is ~205ms, which is almost as fast as the recommended.
  • They offer free CDN.
  • Security is excellent.

Where they lack, though, is in the performance department. If you expect high traffic on the video content site, a2 hosting, or more specifically, their base plan might not be for you.

For the base plan, you get only 5 databases, 500 MBs of RAM, and one 2.1 GHz core processor. This is a perfectly alright hardware allocation for a text-based website, but to load videos on the RAM and display it on user's machine requires much more. However, they obviously have their Swift and Turbo hosting plans for more reliable performance.

starts at $2.75/mo

What we love:

  • Cost for beginners
  • Control panel

Hostgator, too, is a subsidiary of Endurance International group. However, despite having a low cost, it’s better than Bluehost in some cases, especially if you are targeting the Indian demographic.

Hostgator’s starting price is $2.75/month if you are willing to buy on a 3-year tenure. One thing you’ll notice right away is it’s affordable (one of the reasons why its reseller hosting is big). And how do they manage that? Well, because their emphasis is on value rather than supreme quality, which the big brother chases.

For such a low-cost plan, you get unlimited HDD disk space(which is technically slower compared to SSD but won’t matter to most owners’ needs. Additionally, HDD storage has its own perks), unlimited bandwidth, free SSL certificate, free domain name, Hostgator website builder, and unlimited email accounts. Its customer service is also pretty good, i.e., comparable to Bluehost’s. Another similarity it has with Bluehost is in uptime⁠— it also guarantees an uptime of 99.9%.

However, where it wins is in India. 

If you are targeting specifically the Indian demographic, it gives a tough competition to the big brother and all other hosting service providers on the list. The reason? Their data centers located in Mumbai gives an extraordinary response time. 

In our testing from Bangalore, Hostgator India hosted site’s server response time was 3 ms, which is as good as it gets. Nevertheless, the average response time across the globe was okayish at about 210 ms.

In a nutshell, Hostgator is keeping the host-in-India promise it made on the 2016 Independence day.

What we love:

  • Low Cost for beginners
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Customer Support

Hosting over a million websites, iPage is another of the top web hosts under the EIG umbrella. And it offers a value proposition that can’t be ignored ⁠— especially if you are starting your online journey, have a minimal budget, and plan to build multiple sites over time.

For a mere $1.99/month, you can host as many sites as you want and (theoretically) occupy unlimited storage & bandwidth as long as it doesn’t hinder other websites’ performance. 

One of the primary reasons we consider it beginner-friendly is the types of essential-yet-costly features it packs in for free. You get a free domain registration for the first year, a free SSL certificate, free professional emails, and a drag-and-drop website builder. Moreover, their 24/7 chat, 99.9% uptime guarantee, and 30-day money-back guarantee ooze reliability.

The main downside, for lack of a better word, with iPage is they have two data centers & both are in the US. It slightly affects the site speed when accessed from India. Nothing major, though ⁠— in our test, server response time from India was 230 ms, which is pretty normal & can be improved with a CDN.

Overall, iPage is a solid option in the affordable web hosting market. We’d especially recommend it if you plan to own more than one website in the future.

33 ms

starts at INR 139/mo

What we love:

  •  Free email addresses
  • Free SSL certificates
  • 30-day money-back guarantee

BigRock owns servers in India, which makes it an instant consideration for lists such as the one you are reading- “best web hosting in India”. Why? Well, this fact alone makes it a choice for good performance in India. Our performance test results show an extraordinary SRT of 33 ms from Bangalore and a pretty good loading time of ~750 ms. Sadly, the uptime during our experiment averaged 99.89%, which is decent but not among the better ones.

Besides, the starting price of INR 139/month for India servers and INR 99/month for the US servers puts in the “affordable” bracket. And the inclusion of the free domain name, free email addresses, free SSL certificates, and a 30-day money-back guarantee makes it a fantastic value on paper.

The only disappointing part for us was BigRock’s customer support. It was comparatively slow and not the best for solving advanced problems. Otherwise, BigRock is rock-solid, individually.

8. MilesWeb

Overall Uptime

Average server speed

Average server speed(in India)

starts at INR 40/mo (exc. GST)

What we love:

  •  Free email addresses
  • Free SSL certificates
  • 30-day money-back guarantee

Started in 2012, MilesWeb is a Maharashtra-based web hosting provider offering some of the best packages for individuals and small businesses looking to purchase a cheap web host to serve the Indian demographic.

Naturally, MilesWeb has a data center in India (among many other countries like the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and Singapore). Meaning, their performance in India is likely to be superb (Our tests show a ~5 ms SRT in India and loading time of under 750 ms). 

Moreover, their knowledgebase is fantastic, and their customer support team is swift and well-versed. Features such as free emails, free SSL certificate, a free .xyz domain, website builder, essential security features like WAF & malware protection, etc., are also included.

The thing we loved the most about MilesWeb is that their renewal and introductory pricing are the same, unlike most providers in the market. Their 30-day money-back guarantee is a bit dubious, though.

Otherwise, it's amongst the best affordable web hosts in India just after Hostinger.

9. NextraOne

Nextraone logo

Overall Uptime

Average server speed
~ 220 ms

Average server speed(in India)
40 ms

Starts at INR 69/mo

What we love:

  • India-based data center
  • 730 ms loading speed
  • 24/7  Support

Nextraone is the data center/web hosting arm of Nextra (Or “Next era”) Group, famously known for their broadband services in Delhi, Chandigarh, Mumbai, and across other places in India. And it has a few things going for it to be considered among the best web hosting providers in India. 

Firstly, it’s India-based & owns a Wipro-designed data center with a server farm across 25,000 sq. ft.! Meaning, the server response time across India will be undoubtedly excellent (it’s ~40 ms in Bangalore). Besides, it uses state-of-the-art hardware & the latest software versions to offer the best performance. (In our tests, the loading time was excellent, whereas availability was mediocre.) 

Their base plan costs a meager Rs.31/month, but it's basically useless given there’s no room for a database. Even the second-cheapest plan supports only WordPress and no other CMSs like Joomla or Drupal. Anyway, if that’s something you can live with, there’s very little to complain about except for a few nitpicks like not having features like auto-backups or comparatively less value for money.

10. Hostripples

Overall Uptime

Average server speed
~ 185 ms

Average server speed(in India)
70 ms

Starts at INR 35/mo

What we love:

  • Free SSL certificate
  • Free site builder

Hostripples is an India-based provider with servers across the globe, including India. Therefore, their server response time in India is excellent. However, their overall performance is strictly average.

In our opinion, it is largely because they aim to be the cheapest web hosting in India. To offer hosting at the cheapest price (a mere Rs. 35/month), either quality of the service needs to be downgraded, or the servers have to be overcrowded. E.g., Hostripples' customer support is mediocre, and as mentioned, performance is average. 

On the features side of things, Hostripples impressed us with the free SSL certificate and free professional email account on the base shared hosting plan. What we found the most unimpressive was their attempt to (allegedly) fake social proof, which they wouldn’t need to do if they actually were the best web hosting in India.

11. Crazy Domains

crazydomains logo

Overall Uptime

Average server speed
~ 225 ms

Average server speed(in India)
70 ms

Starts at INR 116/mo (10 years pre-pay!)

What we love:

  • Free  emails
  • 60-day money-back guarantee

Crazy Domains is a global domain registrar and web hosting service provider. It owns data centers in Australia, Europe, India, New Zealand, United States, United Kingdom, the Middle East, and Asia. Meaning, server response time in and around these places will be top-notch (In India, the average SRT is 120 ms.).

Other than SRT, Crazy Domains’ server’s performance is fairly decent ⁠— not crazy, though! Then, there are free emails, a 60-day money-back guarantee, and up to 1.5 GB RAM on their base plan in their users’ favor. 

However, we don’t like some elements of Crazy Domains, including not including a free SSL certificate, charging for backup restores, pushing a 10-year plan, upselling frequently, and incompetent customer support. Yes, their pricing for the storage, bandwidth, and memory offered seems fair, but not including basic features is a turn-off.

Overall, Crazy Domains is definitely not crazy good. Its position on this list is proof of that.

Now that you have our top 11 hosting in India list, how do you figure the best one for your needs? Well, there are a few considerations. We already discussed them while giving the providers’ overviews. Now let’s remove the hosting companies from the equation and see the elements you should focus on and why.

What to Consider When Choosing a Hosting Company?

For us, when we are choosing a hosting service provider or are recommending one, these are the factors we care for:

1. Price

When you are looking through your hosting options, you need to consider the introductory & renewal charges because it’s an overhead after all.

Though we do recommend spending a couple of bucks more for a better quality hosting, comparing the “price for need” rather than the “value for money” is important.

For e.g., You are a videographer or a video editor who needs to make a portfolio website. Obviously, you’re going to need more than 10 or 20 GB of disk space, which most hosting offers. In this case, you’ve two options: You either go for something like Siteground’s high-end plan, which costs $$$/month, or A2 Hosting’s beginner or intermediate plan which costs way less.

Here, the price gap is huge. So, you’ll need to consider other factors Siteground offers and A2 does not.

One significant difference comes in the form of performance and stability. In high traffic situations, due to the resource allocated, Siteground will perform smoothly while A2 hosting will struggle.

But...do you need the performance? Our guess: No, you don’t. As your website is just a portfolio, you will just be sharing links with prospects and won’t be marketing to the general public. Meaning, the chances of traffic surges are slim to none.

Therefore, in this case, A2hosting is a better/no-waste option for you. Bluehost can be a middle ground, too, because of the 50 GB disk space it offers on its base plan.

And that is how “Price” becomes a priority consideration when choosing a hosting.

2. Type:

The type of hosting is also a major factor while opting. Granted, we mostly discussed entry-level web hosting plans, i.e., shared hosting and managed wordpress hosting, but for some, neither will be sufficient. For those, other types of hosting services are available in the market.

Let’s discuss all the types one by one:

Shared Hosting:

As the name implies, if you opt for shared hosting plans, your website will be hosted with multiple other sites on the same server. This means, you will be sharing resources like processor, RAM, etc. with others on the same server. Additionally, not that the hosting company doesn’t, but you’ll need to take more care of things like Performance optimization, Backups, Security, etc.

Overall, this type of hosting is perfect for entry-level individuals/businesses that don’t expect massive traffic surges and have limited budgets.

Managed Wordpress Hosting:

Again, as the name suggests, with managed wordpress hosting, everything is handled by the provider— performance, auto backups, security, etc. Essentially, Wordpress hosting is based on other hosting architectures just everything is optimized for Wordpress. Meaning, if you use Wordpress hosting from a service like Hostgator, which uses cloud architecture for Managed Wordpress, you’ll be using your allocated resources all the time, i.e., unlike shared hosting, no one will “borrow” any CPU or RAM.

Of course, it’s a little costlier than the shared option, but is well worth it for the convenience offered.

Dedicated hosting:

In dedicated hosting, the server is exclusively rented to you. Meaning, you have full control over the server— you can choose everything from the OS you run to the security you implement. Moreover, as you rent the whole server, and this goes without saying, each resource is dedicated to your site(s).

This type of hosting is of your use when you have technical expertise, and, more importantly, your site gets hundreds of thousands or even millions of monthly hits.

VPS Hosting:

Virtual Private/Dedicated servers(VPS) are similar to a Dedicated servers but with a shared hosting twist to it. In this, you don’t get a whole physical server; rather, you lock a dedicated part of that server. Meaning, the resources will be divided. Other than that, it performs like a dedicated server— you have the superuser-access to yourself.

However, as the resources are divided, the performance capability is lower than Dedicated hosting but higher than typical shared hosting. Similarly, prices are lower than dedicated servers and higher than shared web hosting plans.

Cloud Hosting:

In cloud hosting, multiple servers/computers work together to provide you resources— meaning, the server almost never goes down because of the distributed approach.

Cloud hosting providers form a ‘virtualized environment’ for you and dedicate the RAM, processor cores, SSD/HDD, etc. as per the need.

The main benefit of such hosting is, though you don’t get the full control like in dedicated, you pay for what you use. Cloud hosting plans can be scaled down/up or can be set on auto-scalable to manage the usable resources. Meaning, no buck you paid for is idle, which can be a frequent case in any of the other hosting types.

3. Speed

Another factor you need to consider before purchasing the hosting— and this one is the most critical, in our opinion— is speed.

According to Google, “speed equals revenue.” To support this statement, many statistics are available online. Google's dedication to speed is also clear as the important of core web vitals are constantly rising in SEO and metrics like LCP (largest conenful paint), FID (first input delay) and CLS (cumulative layout shift) are becoming more important ranking signals than ever.

Apart from the way your website is built/optimized, your hosting providers play a significant role in overall speed. A few elements you need to look at when choosing a hosting provider are:

  • HDD/SSD: Though HDD has its benefits, when it comes to speed, SSDs are unparalleled. This doesn’t mean the data transfer speed of something like Hostgator is bad, but if a lot of data transfer is involved, especially in big chunks, SSD should be a priority.
  • Datacenter location: If two hosting providers are equal in everything they provide, but one has a data center near your target audience, and the other doesn’t, the former one will be quicker in data delivery.
  • CDN or not: Let’s take the same example. If one doesn’t offer free CDN and the other does, go with the latter.  Content Delivery Network(CDN) caches the site data at multiple locations. This implies that the visitor will get the data from the nearest network node instead of the main server, essentially saving some time. 

Overall, speed must be the first consideration while going through your options.

4. Customer/Technical Support:

When things go south, this is where you turn to.

Remember this: The hosting you want to choose must have an option to talk with a real person 24/7, may it be through live chat or emails or phone, which is the case with all the eleven hostings we mentioned. Moreover, they must have a reputation of solving customer problems. 

Big-name companies like Siteground and Bluehost take this department very seriously and hence excel at making their customers happy.

In short, opt for the one whose customers are happy.

5. Add-ons

A little extra never hurts. If you can’t narrow down your options to one with the essentials we discussed, Add-ons might help you make the decision.

Some companies like Siteground offer perks like free SSL certificate, CDN, Daily backups, unlimited bandwidth, etc. And if the other in the competition doesn’t, you have your answer.

6. Reputation

The fact that these eleven mentioned companies are in this best hosting list means time and again they have proved to be the best. Whether it’s our list or other social proof such as testimonials, Twitter feed, or Facebook polls, all the eleven hostings shone. 

And that’s the first thing you should check before starting the filtering process— Reputation.

USA vs. India: Which one to choose if a global company has a localized website?

A couple of the hosting providers we discussed have their India-centric versions as well. Meaning, the company operates as a separate entity in India— their workforce is independent, their pricing structure is different, and so forth.

In our experience, the support staff of the US versions of each hosting provider has been better compared to Indian ones, may it be in their manner of dealing with the situation or the expertise.

The Indian support team is good, but the US one is excellent in every case. And given the priority we give to “technical support” when purchasing a hosting, we would recommend going with the US versions. 

Moreover, due to decades of establishment in US or the non-Indian locations these companies are headquartered in, their server infrastructure is superior compared to the Indian counterparts. This means, the US/non-Indian versions will give better performance and reliability compared to Indian versions.    

All in all, go with the US versions. That’s it.

Frequently asked questions

We tried to give you a nice overview of the most popular hosting providers, but if you still can't decide, have a look at the below frequently asked questions:

How much does it cost to host a website in India?

The average prices for hosting a website in India ranges between ₹3000 to 12,000 per year for shared hosting plans and ₹30,000 to 100,00 per year for dedicated hosting. 

Since many hosting companies offer a wide range of services, it's a good idea to decide first what kind of features you are looking for and compare the companies' relevant plans.

What is the cheapest and best web hosting service?

Hostinger India is the cheapest web hosting service we are suggesting on our list of best providers. Their absolute most affordable plan starts at ₹59/month, while at ₹119/month, you can get a free domain along with SSL, 20GB SSD, unlimited bandwidth, and fast servers.

If you are looking to host a personal website or have a small business, Hostinger is our #1 recommendation.

How can I host a website in India?

The most basic way of setting up your new website in less than 5 minutes is this:

  1. Choose a hosting company and sign up for a hosting plan with them. We recommend signing up for a 1-year plan, but you can get significant discounts if you choose 3-4 years.
  2. Register a domain name that will be the primary address of your website. Some web hosting companies like Hostinger are giving you a free domain if you host your website with them.
  3. Go to your Cpanel and select "WordPress".
  4. Select "auto-installer" and go through the steps.
  5. Once the installation is finished, select a free theme from WordPress's directory and upload your content.

Voila, your website is live on the internet.

Does Google offer Web hosting?

Yes, Google offers web hosting as part of the Google Cloud Platform, which can be an excellent choice for start-ups and IT companies who want to host their apps and web development projects in a safe environment. 

However, we don't recommend it for small businesses and personal sites because their services are too expensive and complicated for the average user.

Which hosting is best for SEO?

Our toplist of the best web hosting providers in India also represents our recommendations if you are focusing on SEO. We already talked about the importance of website speed and core web vital metrics, and the following companies are all recommended:

  1. Hostinger
  2. Bluehost
  3. Hostgator
  4. Kinsta
  5. A2 Hosting

Is Godaddy a good host?

Godaddy is one of the most well-known brands in the hosting industry, and it's a good choice for global websites. However, we have lot better options on our toplist like Bluehost (great for WordPress sites targeting the USA) or Hostinger, which is our #1 overall recommendation, especially for India.

Is free web hosting good?

The short answer is no, we don't recommend using free hosting companies. It sounds great that you can get something for free, but you always get what you pay for...

Free hosting companies have extremely slow servers, they are spamming your website with ads, and they are killing your possibilities with their limitations. So we suggest you stay away from them and choose a cheap but paid option instead.

A quick summary

Hosting is a critical element to succeed online. It is something one shouldn’t cheap out on. However, overspending is also a fool’s mistake.

  •  Hostinger: The best company to choose for price and value as well as performance.
