Through a comment in this blog and through some queries I received elsewhere, I realized people wanted to know about hosting account experience. Unfortunately, we don’t have major insights to share about various possibilities. Because experimenting in this case costs money and a lot of hassle with the DNS propagation time (sigh – pothi.com is still not accessible except from CMU it seems!). We had started with registering our domains on www.nettigritty.com and got a basic hosting account there. As I have mentioned earlier, these guys are super-reliable, very quick in their response for support questions. Their CPanel interface is also very simple, intuitive and still powerful. But unfortunately the hosting account deals, when you space requirement is large, aren’t great at all. Now, if you start searching over the Internet, its possible to get too-good-to-be-believed-deals. We don’t have so much experience with these things that we could compare all the features and figure out what works the best for us. If you start reading reviews on the Internet, there are as many bad reviews as are good for any product and service. So, we did what inexperienced consumers usually do. Went with the brand name. Godaddy.com. I know of at least couple of other start-ups in India who are hosted there, although you find enough reviews with complaints about them too. There were some reasonably priced options and we went with the cheapest one. But it has some major limitations (you can’t change document root, for example). We are going to upgrade to the next level to get that facility as well as the facility to host multiple domains. I find their interface extremely crowded and difficult to navigate through. I always have to search and wander around to reach anywhere useful. But we are going to stick to it for now.
