    Pros of Hostinger Hosting

    1. Hosting Features:

    100GB bandwidth, 10GB storage, website builder, 1 email account, Free SSL Security, 30-days money-back guarantee

    2. Uptime of Hostinger is Good(99.95%):

    Uptime is the average time that a server remains up and run for website visitors coming on a website. Ideally, many company claims that their uptime is 99.99%. But this is not true always.

    Now, let us see what are factors actually affect the uptime of a server

    • Any hardware failure during power on.
    • Server Maintenance.
    • Power failures

    Uptime is very important for a website in terms of gaining visitors, increased revenue, search engine ranking, and many more.

    If the site has low uptime, that means either site is not loading properly or showing any server error. It leads to the loss of sales, authority of a website among customers

    In the case of Hostinger, Hostinger claims that their uptime is 99.95%.

    Now, let’s see with an example

    If you goto a tool host tracker, you can quickly find the uptime of both the site. And after measuring more than 50 times, we calculated an average value of all the measured values and this is 99.95%.

    3. Loading speed(350ms):

    Next up is speed, and what we’re looking for here is something that tells us that the servers that our website is going to be hosted on are using software and hardware that is designed to be fully optimized for speed so then that way when our website is running on it we can take full advantage of those features in order to make our website load faster.

    4. 30days money-back guarantee

    Like many other hosting providers, Hostinger also has a 30days money-back guarantee policy. You can purchase any plan and test it for 30 days. If you find it good, then continue with it or else you can claim your money.

    It also provides multiple payment options such as Visa, Paypal, Mastercard, Bitcoin, Maestro, American Express, and Discover,.

    But remember one thing, it has a specific refund policy for individual plans. Hence, Make sure to read Hostinger’s Refund Policy before purchasing any hosting-plans.

    5. Quick Customer Care support and Live chat

    Hostinger has unique features i;e Live Chat. Through Live Chat, you can connect with Hostinger Technical Team and resolve any issue.

    How to purchase Web Hosting from Hostinger

    If you see the prices per month, you can see the least is Rs 59/month which is probably the least hosting charge in the industry.

    If you wishes, you can go with this plan. I choose the second plan that gives more flexibility.

    You can see that With only Rs 99/month I can add up to 100 websites under the same hosting plan. This is Why I recommend you to choose WordPress Starter Plan.

    To a great extent, the functionality and performance of your blog will depend on your hosting provider.

    The host makes sure your blog is available 24/7 to potential readers and it’s where your files are stored online. Most hosting companies also offer domain registration services.

    Some people keep their domain name with the registrar company, separate from the hosting account. We recommend keeping it all under your hosting account for hassle-free management and maintenance.

    • Install blogging Platform and Configure

    FAQ

    1. What is Domain and Hosting

    Many of my viewers are confused with domain and hosting. They exactly can’t find out the difference between the two.
    Today, I will clear your doubt. Just consider an example, you want to connect electricity in your new office, then what you need to do?
    First, you have to go to the nearby electricity office, right? After going there, you have to register the name of the person or office owner where the connection will be done.
    After the registration, the electrician will come and connect electricity to your office. But the process doesn’t stop here.
    After the connection, you have to pay an electricity fee every month depends on the consumption of the electric unit, right.
    Now, simply connect this example online. Here online, the registration process is called domain registration, and the name in which you register is called domain name(www.facebook.com).
    Secondly, the electricity company that hosts/serves you electricity charged an amount, similarly in online, web-hosting provider that hosts/keeps your data in their server charges a fixed amount on monthly basis. The monthly electricity bill that you is nothing but the hosting charge.
    This is called web-hosting and the company is called a hosting-provider.
    I hope, you understand the difference between Domain and Hosting now.

    2. Best Hosting Service Provider in India

    You might be confused about where should I purchase the domain and Hosting.
    To purchase Hosting, You should go with someone who has the fastest hosting at less cost. There are many companies that provide hosting services such as Godaddy, A2 Hosting, Siteground, Hostinger, etc.
    I personally use Hostinger for hosting my website. The reason is hostinger provides me the flexibility of adding up to 100 websites with the same cost which you cannot find out in any other hosting provider.
    In Addition, Hostinger provides quick customer support that helps me quickly sort-out any issue with my site.
