    Hostgator Launched Hostgator India

    Hello Everybody !

    I just want to let you know that HostGator launched it's branch in India(Hostgator.in). I asked for it several times in these 2 1/2 years and it launched now

    I wonder there is not a single post about it on WHT. BTW, there are not much good reviews about Hostgator.com's VPS and dedicated servers.

    Anyhow, Good luck to Hostgator India and their new customers

    Funny, I just received an email to my yahoo about hostgator India.

    http://www.hostgator.in/
    saying
    We are even offering a free 7 day test/trial of our shared HostGator India accounts

    Looks they have already started support firms in India as well.

    Interesting indeed, I wonder if the servers are going to actually hosted in Data Centers in India or is it only going to be Indian based customer service?

    Whats interesting is they are offering the same services at the same price and in American Dollars? I wonder if this is the first step in a plan to move American web hosting operations to India?

    They have too much money invested already in Texas. India is easier to do business with than China and they have over 1 billion people. It is probably just their first international expansion as it has the potential to be their most profitable.

    I doubt whether the Indian datacenters will be successful. The bandwidth cost and the datacenter quality in India aren't upto the mark.

    But so far as labour is concerned it will be many times cheaper in India.

    It will definitely be interesting to see how it all plays out. What really raised my eyebrow was the currency. If it was a true Indian brand, shouldn't the pricing be in rupees?

    Here are some of their Indian office screenshots.

    Their USA offices look like palaces, but the Indian offices they started look more pathetic.

    Clearly they are looking for a profit margin.

    Awesome, I am sure HostGator will provide some badly needed *good* jobs for as many folks as the business will sustain... I wish them well!

    Hello People,

    Thank you for all your wishes. We appreciate it.

    Hostgator's Indian operations have been in testing for the past 6 months or so and we have just launched them commercially because now we are confident that we can provide clients with the same level of service we offer to our US clients. The Indian operations are basically for Asian clients as well who need low latency servers within Asia. We own our IP addresses in Asia and so in future on demand we can provide servers in almost any part of Asia. We have chosen the best available DC in India and so the server access times are super fast. We want people to experience it and so we are offering the free trail as well for the shared accounts.

    We have chosen India to be our Asian startup point to the availability of skilled techs here. We have been building a team of skilled techs for the Indian office over the past few months and we are already in 24x7 operations at this time. About the office, unfortunately we do not have as many employees as our US office yet and so the office is a bit smaller. Things are moving forward though and we will be expanding the office space if needed.

    INR billing support will also be available soon. We are localizing everything for India and Asia and with real client feedback we will maintain our top notch service level and support as well.

    Most of us love the US servers than India based. Better to follow HostDime-India's plan here. They sell two types ....India Based servers(based on WebWerks data-center in Mumbai) and US based servers (Their own DC)

    Usually Corporate employs in India maintain a particular dress code and their appearance looks neat. But the appearance of employs in these pictures looks weird. Especially the guy with hat and and another guy with Grey jeans. I don't think any employer in India allow them

    INR billing support will also be available soon. We are localizing everything for India
    I am waiting for this too

    Thanks !

    Yes, their company interior is vary far behind what you would find in an CMM level 3 or Level 4/5 company in India even in the starting stages.

    I remember the photos posted in WHT by hostgator showing the interior of their US offices. What a contrast

    Anyway wish good luck to hostgator India. They will get a good market for sure. Most people here trust alot the unlimited sellers

    Just some clarifications ..

    Our US operations still remain open to everyone who love their servers to be hosted in the US. However all of us know our great ISPs in India and what latency they offer to the US network. At times when there is a sea cable cut, people cannot access their sites for days together.

    About the work environment, we have a casual work environment here. We let people work with ease as we do in our US office rather than forcing a dress code on them. After all, if the staff is comfortable, they would provide you good support

    Sounds very interesting. This could actually be one of it's most profitable operations as there is an untouched market. Good luck to them!

    IMHO its like judging the new Hostgator Indian hosting concept before even testing it.. That reminds me of the famous quote from the Shrek movie "people try to judge me even before they know me.. "

    Cool down guys and stop concluding things immediately before even testing and reviewing their Indian hosting services.. Allow HG to establish themselves in India and may be we can judge their service level and the other hosting features wtih the help of reviews from people..

    Goodluck HG for your new Indian hosting launch..!

    They support USD for their Indian hosting. They will make Indian rupee possible with time.

    In fact that is good news for its Asian Customers.
    To paint the big picture this will also act as an outsource support center for Asia as HostGator is yet to start providing support in other languages and this is its first step towards that.

    Let's just watch and see how they sweep the market.

    We are currently accepting INR payments too. But these are limited to offline payments for now. We will shortly be moving over to INR payments only for the Indian operations.

    As far as I know, there are no Arvixe's branches or agents in India. Just confirmed by an Indian executive at Arvixe

    They do have Employs working from India , but no Branches/Agents

    Of-course, they do accept payments from Inida in off-line payment modes.That is in Dollars and not in rupees

    I just wanted to come here and clarify this, as I knew this was going to be a large question.

    The quote above is not going to be the case. All support will continue to be handled by US Admins/Techs *unless* you specifically request local support (and contact them directly at the separate phone/chat/email addresses) or have signed up with one of our local/international hosting brands specifically (i.e. India, or Brazil, etc.).

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask.

    Thanks!

    As a customer in India, I can't care less about how their office looks and what their employees wear. If they can provide a service as reliable as their US peers, it is good enough for me.

    We definitely need well funded hosting companies here in India with billing in Indian rupees. I'll take a reseller account as soon as billing in Indian rupees is available.
