MilesWeb Review: Cheap hosting, but does it really help?

There is a time in each web owner’s life when we start to lookout for a new hosting provider. There might be many reasons behind it, which include the downtime of the website, not-so-friendly customer support, etc. There was a time when I used to face similar issues and then started searching for better options. I spent months in this research and most of the time I used to get disappointed due to one thing or the other as I had a whole checklist ready and wanted a hosting provider which ticked all the boxes. But, as I said earlier, I used to get disappointed time and again.  Then I came across some really genuine hosting provider companies which ticked almost all of my boxes. These were MilesWeb. Hostinger, Hostgator, GoDaddy and A2 Hosting, and once I was done, I was very happy to get the desired result for my website. Then I thought of sharing this with everyone through a review report.

Today I’ll share the review of MilesWeb one of my favorite of the lot. The name might be quite surprising for you as it was for me as well. Let me just elaborate to you about the details of this comparatively new Indian service provider.

MilesWeb: A brief

MilesWeb was established in 2012, and yes it is a relatively new and independent Indian web hosting company. But, within these eight to nine years of hosting journey, the company has gained a lot of appreciation and popularity on the internet. The company provides domain registration, website security, SSL certificate, and similar essentials along with almost all variants of web hosting. They have delivered all these services to 28000+ customers.

With 6 data centers all over the world, the customers of MilesWeb are well accommodated with options to choose from, as per their convenience and need.

Now let us take a look at their plans, performance, and the support that they boast of so much.

Pricing and Plans

MilesWeb offers almost all variants of web hosting services, right from the basic shared hosting services, WordPress hosting, managed and self-managed VPS, cloud, plesk windows hosting, and dedicated or bare metal servers. As they offer both Windows and Linux OS, customers are free to choose whichever OS they are comfortable with.

If we consider shared hosting (being the most popular), then the most affordable shared hosting plan which is the “Tyro” plan even after being the cheap web hosting plan, does offer features such as 1 free .XYZ domain to register, lets you host one website, 10 email accounts, gives 1GB SSD disk space, free SSL certificate, website builder, control panel with a 1-click installer, and more. But yes there are certain limitations which even I was skeptical about, these include an extra cost for the automated data backup and not to forget about the above-mentioned limitations for email accounts, disk space which doesn’t make it as unlimited as they state it to be.

Apart from all these the major point to be noted is that they do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, which does act as a safe exit option if in case you don’t find it to be the best fit for your needs.

Performance and Support

With the 99.95% uptime and the quality of infrastructure they offer, the performance has to be the best. There are several tests done by many of their customers and displayed on the respective platforms which denote that the company is true to its words when it states about the best in class web performance.  And thanks to their Tier-3 and Tier-4 data centers they can definitely live up to the standards that they have set for themselves.

The most iconic difference between MilesWeb and its competitors is the platform it provides for self-help for all web-based queries, especially related to web design, development, and hosting. It includes both text and audio-video format of knowledge base and video library.

Last but not least is their 24/7 customer support team which includes well-versed technical members to assist you whenever you face any issue during setting up of your website or even when you feel like updating and keeping your website up to date.

The Verdict

MilesWeb certainly impresses with the variety of hosting solutions that it offers. Their ability to fulfill the requirements of almost every type of website is also remarkable. But, there are certain doubts regarding their statement of unlimited hosting and it might disappoint some customers.

On the other hand, MilesWeb’s popularity is increasing in India and the US for some good reasons; affordability, all-inclusive service, reliability, and their professional and technically sound support team. That’s why in the beginning I said that MilesWeb is my favorite from the list and it has to be considered for someone who is looking for a trustworthy and up to the mark performing hosting provider.
