As you may already know, finding the best web host is a hefty task. For those newbie bloggers finding the best web host can be even more harder than the experienced ones. It is always better to check reviews before purchasing a shared web hosting plan as moving your website from one web host to another could be a hefty task especially for beginners. I am speaking this from my own experience. I have tried big web hosts and they were OK in most scenarios. But there were so many problems which I wasn’t aware as a newbie, such as less number of the entry process, Less memory allocation, all these returned errors for my users when there is a traffic surge on my website. Additionally, I also had my websites respond and load slowly. That is the reason why I decided to switch to Milesweb. Since I found they are really awesome, I decided to write a review of them.
Speed and performance
Milesweb has Server in various locations. They have their data centers in India, USA, Europe. You can choose the data center which is closer to the majority of your clients. Most of my website visitors are from the USA and Europe so I chose USA data center. With my previous host, my site response time was above 1 second. But when I switched to Milesweb. I saw that the website responded in less than 200 milliseconds which is recommended by Google. I use an SSL certificate and they slightly reduce website response time, even then, Milesweb servers managed to respond faster. Page load time is also very good. I checked website speed from various locations, website performance was fantastic most of the time. This is pretty impressive for a shared web hosting server.
They have three plans. They do provide Unlimited disk space and bandwidth with their Value and Unlimited plans. They also provide an Unlimited email address and My SQL databases with these plans. Other resources like entry process and Memory are allowed generously. They also provide generous Let’s encrypt free SSL certificates with all of their plans
Support is something you should look for while purchasing a web hosting plan. Don’t always go for cheaper hosting just to save few bucks. You might need to compromise on other things like support and performance. So support is something very crucial and Milesweb does provide top notch support for its customers through Phone, Live chat, and Phone. Also, they are available 24*7. If you ran into any problem, they are always there to help. We tested their support at different times of the day and found it is fantastic. They were polite and experienced to solve all of the issues created by us
They do provide web hosting at an affordable price. According to Milesweb,
“It’s imperative that we do our best in the highly competitive industry. Unlike the big players, we don’t have the customer base in millions so we are not eligible for their bulk discounts, but still, we try our best to deliver hosting services at a reasonable price. We are running business and obviously we need to make money, but we are not greedy to charge wildly over the odds and make a profit.”
As per the quality of services provided by them, their pricing is highly affordable. They also provide OpenVZ and KVM VPS and dedicated services and they offer the best pricing in the industry. One thing we might mention is their WordPress hosting. They also have a WordPress hosting service which is highly optimized for WordPress and provides faster, secure WordPress hosting at very affordable rate. Unlike many other WordPress hosting services,they do not restrict number of users or bandwidth each month
One thing we shouldn’t forget that they are a start-up company from India which grows fast due to their quality of service. But I would say that even without discounts, their pricing is really affordable for all. A decent shared web hosting price varies between 90-150$ typically and each shared web host has its own pros and cons when compared. When pricing and quality of service is considered, Milesweb is cheap. I don’t go for a web host which gives a huge discount for the initial term and charges 2x or 3x more than that for renewals. If you get huge discounts, keep in mind that there is always a catch in everything.
Uptime and Downtime
They guarantee 99.95% up time. This is pretty great. Although many of their competitors are providing 99.99% uptime guarantee, during past three months, their downtime was 8 minutes. Pretty impressive eh?
Free domain and money back
They do have an anytime money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with their services, they will refund your money with no questions asked. We purchased their Economy shared hosting plan and after a fortnight asked for a refund without giving a reason for cancellation. They processed refunds immediately without asking any question. However refunds are applicable for first order only, for your second order, You will not get a refund even if you request a cancellation.
They also provide a .in or a .co.in domain for free with their hosting plans. This would help you to save a little bit on the domain registration if you don’t have a domain already. But please note that they do not provide a .com domain for free.
To conclude, I would say that Milesweb offers excellent service. Their servers perform faster, they do provide Unlimited server resources. They provide top notch support via Live chat, Phone, and support tickets. They also provide Great uptime and affordable pricing. With my experience, we would suggest them to anyone
