In recent years we have seen the growth of world wide web faster than ever before, and with the burst of social media, every business and even individuals are trying to build a solid web presence with all the means possible. Be it a simple business website or a dynamic web application, one thing you can not blindingly trust on is – Web hosting.
Starting from minor technical details like which technologies you need in place to simple things like technical support with your web host, selecting the best of them can get confusing. So based on my experience of all these years of blogging, and shifting hosts for numerous reasons, following are the top 5 hosting companies in India, I would highly recommend based on my personal experience.
If you are planning to get started with a blog, personal website, eCommerce store or maybe some small web ventures, the basic plan of Milesweb starts from just $5/month (or $3/month for longer commitment). But if you are in serious web business the reseller and VPS plans are quite affordable as well. Even the smallest plan comes with faster SSD storage, which is hard to find with budget hosting plans. For critical websites that needs fastest servers and customization options the dedicated hosting plans from Milesweb starts at just $99/month.
Equipped with all the latest web technologies, they offer your server locations from countries like UK, US, India & Romania. This is great if you are looking for preferred locations based on your site users. With one click install software, Anytime money back gurantee and 24×7 support, MilesWeb would be a great choice for both beginners and professionals.
One of the most popular web hosting company among the bloggers and website creators worldwide, Bluehost offers everything you will ever need with web hosting. There plans are not the most affordable ones, but you can rest assured for their world-class support, in case you have any technical issues with your websites.Most of their shared plans comes with unlimited domain names, unlimited web space and unlimited bandwidth, which is pretty amazing deal if you are planning to host multiple websites in long term.

I have personnel used this hosting service longer than anyone, and one thing I will highly praise Hostgator is for their amazing support available over phone, chat and email. I personally don’t love raising tickets and wait, so I can highly rely on Hostgator’s customer support on chat, for real-time issue resolution.
Apart from the customer support Hostgator offers great plans from shared to dedicated hosting, and they are well-known for offering whopping discounts on holiday seasons like Black Friday and many others. So if you are a reseller, web app developer or simply a blogger, you can go for Hostgator any day.
Note – There is hostgator.com and Indian version of same company hostgator.in, from which I personally found the Hostgator.com being more reliable.
Being one of the most renowned domain reseller worldwide, Godaddy not only has massive customer base for web clients but a solid experience as well. But even with all this strength, I found it being little less user-friendly compared to the rest in this list. Buying domain and web hosting is simple, but their frequent UI updates makes it a bit frustrating experience.
Overall, they offer all the major web and email hosting services like very other hosts, with latest technologies and software support. The pricing is lucrative for shared hosting plans, but it get expensive if you are looking for VPS or dedicated hosting for your business.
Another great Indian hosting company that serves many online businesses is ZNetLive. Their basic web hosting bundle starts with just Rs.199, which is great for single domain or blog hosting. Apart from these they have wide selection of shared, VPS and dedicated hosting plans and great suite of security features with every plan.
Just like Hostgator they offer support from chat or on call, and they are quite reliable if you own and operate business from India.
So these are the top 5 companies that can provide reliable hosting services in India, with an amazing set of features and quality of support. Which are your favorite hosting company? Do you have any good or bad experience with any of these host? – Do let me know in the comments section below.
