    thanks for sharing your experience. Really its a great information for me to avoid these types of hosting companies. But I dont think all are like these. You can try with good track record.

    You can get them problems anywhere, I don't really see the location making a certain difference.

    Especially when I know quite a few "uk/us" companies use Indian support centres for their tech support...

    I actually had a good experience with Turbovps when I used them a few years ago. They are an Indian concern.

    Is this thread a form of stereotyping or racism? There are bound to be many problems with the "fly-by-night" amateur hosting companies. Why target Indians in particular??

    These issues may(and will) arise at other companies as well. That's just how this industry---infact every industry, works.

    As for your topic "Indian companies", are these the ONLY Indian companies providing the services? No offense but you should research a bit further about other companies as well(hint: search how many people have got issues with Hostgator: Google). A thread title and content about either or both of these companies shouldn't be issue but blaming an entire industry from a region is just ludicrous, IMO.

    Well,

    I think if you want to do serious business you should at least be willing to spend a little money on a good hosting server.

    I think bluehost.com is one of the best ( very cheap aswell ) hosting servers in the world currently.

    You should try them out, they have great support!

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your experience with us

    OP - Honestly, I avoid subscribing to Indian companies before until I realized that this is not about the race but instead about the attitude. I enjoy this board since I see how people react if you discuss some issues. I also like this industry as you will also see the attitude of every provider from different country.

    The racism and discrimination that some of them are denying that they no longer do it.
    But all I can say is read your reply my man coz it comes out naturally.

    For my suggestion to you...never do this to your fellow countrymen (Never Buy a Hosting at Indian Company Hosting). Sometimes what is lacking to countries like yours is patriotism. Look around, observe and you will notice how other people defend their kind.
    Ask for Server IP & Nameservers IP to check if your reseller provider truly provides 100% white-label.

    I think I came around both of them when looking for dedicated server hosts in india.
    He's not talking about fly-by-night companies.


    edit: on the other hand i gave up my search in the end as many of the ISPs appeared just too shady no matter what they promised. i.e. talking about their own tier4 datacenter when it was a quite smallish ISP, and of course not providing a single picture.

    If you're concerned just get a mod to check the IP. As it is, it's plainly obvious the guy isn't a native English speaker.

    I accept that Hostgator is good, but you have said to don't host in Indian hosting companies. You've just faced the problems with two companies, how about other Indian Hosting Companies? You should not blame all Indian companies.
    I don't think that all Indian Hosting companies are bad.

    It's all depends on company Service and support not on the country.

    Well said. To OP your thread should instead about asking references of reputable indian companies (of course you can share your experience with specific companies you had poor experience about), or discuss what could be done by Indian web hosts to improve their overall level

    India is one of the most developed IT regions in the world and there are several good web hosting companies from there. I suppose that is not correct believe that service is poor if web hosting company is from India.

    just because the op is scammed by 2 hosting companies, he should not genaralize it. Search for scam companies from other regions, you'll know that this scam desease is not just limited to India.

    As much as I would love to agree with you, a vast or a latter majority I've read up on and read reviews on from members on this forum it would speak otherwise

    Thanks for the heads up! Hmmm... I think it's better to avoid Indian hosting companies then. But are the servers located in India too or just the company?

    It's hard to tell sometimes where they are actually located, especially if they are using UK and US phone numbers for support.

    Its a learning process for new Indian hosting companies especially the ones using Indian datacenters. It will take few more years for them to tweak their reliability and support.

    But to say Avoid Indian hosting companies is just not right. There are more people burned using US based hosting companies and we don't see them saying avoid US based host ?

    There are quite a few good web hosts in India, all you have to do is what WHT community has been telling: Do research, contact their support to see response times, their sales etc. Ask them to give examples for few sites hosted etc..

    Doing above steps will save you lot of time/money and pain.

    feel sorry for your problems,.

    just FYI, the Indian govt. organizations and leading banks are using Indian Data Centers - and I use these banks online services, they are really good,
    so do not blame entire hosting industry of an country for a few services which are scams/pathetic ,

    I have used lots of services myself from Europe and US and got across more than a few scammers who ran away with my money (didn't do proper research on them, as they were new - my mistake) and I have used certain services which are pathetic and had to drop out of them.

    Good and Bad are everywhere, research is extremely important to choose a host.

    its not certain the OP is an Indian, we don't have anything other than the OP word. Mods could check the ip if the OP isn't using proxies that could help it.

    Most of the OP's problems are with the Indian support that is provided. However, I think that can be said for any hosting company that provides its customer will poor support. People just tend to think of outsourcing as being "an Indian thing" but there are plenty of other countries IT groups outsource work to.

    We all know what it is like dealing with customers that don't speak our native language. If you choose to use a company based in India or one that outsources there then that is what you should expect - you and them are going to have communication issues.

    Hello,
    I should say this happens with US/UK Carriers just as often (even more I dare say). Of course it is not wise to say "Indian" Hosts are of lower quality then others. I do have a theory that could explain your problem

    I think this is a biased remark and comment with hardly any base.

    From what I'm reading and from what I am predicting - the client abused the hosting company and so he got banned. I don't like the excuse of 500 hits a day, I bet its a longer and more detailed story than what the OP started off with.

    From two or a few bad experiences you can't judge everyone.

    If I started with okay xyz.com is bad, and yhff.com is bad (all fictious) from the USA - do I say that all Americans offer bad hosting and are bad hosts ?

    Lack of education and knowledge leads people to say the worst things.

    When will people learn that 2 bad people do not make up the entire population.

    Indian's are at times more impatient than anyone. Many of India's largest companies including the likes of TCS (Tata Consultancy) prefer outside clients since Indian customers are extremists at time (when it comes to lack of temper control and expecation that everything should be free).

    I am Indian, but I think there are few people like the OP who just get "Extreme" over limited issues (their own issues).

    Anyhow, I woudl rate this as a biased review and a personal incident and the words used by the OP are blown out of proportion.

    I am from India using both foreign companies hosting and Indian hosting service for quite a long time. There are many Indian companies who offer stable support and service, to mention few which I used for my sites squarebrothers, znetindia, hioxindia, webhostingindia, hostingindia and few other. Not many Indian companies offer servers hosted at Indian data centers, we have to accept that the condition in Indian data center is very hostile and the growth is still in its infancy. Rates are high, poor support, non standard hardware,bla bla.... But there are many Indian companies serving with US/ UK based servers for quite a long time and running stable. OP had jumped into conclusion immediately with the experience he got with two companies, I even had the same experience with many companies from other countries but for that blaming a countries all company is wrong.

    I completely agree with you There are lots web hosting companies in different countries providing poor service and support.
    we must talk and blame about the company, service and support, we should not blame the whole country.
