Pros and cons of hosting website in India

Things are changing in India, 10 years back when I started NetSpaceIndia there was hardly any datacenter in India, a Few years back India started standing apart and suddenly companies were building up datacenter all over India with Aim to provide the web hosting  services. With new and sophisticated infrastructure.

But new technology comes with a cost and challenges of its own type.

After providing web hosting services to several customers in India and world,  here is my list of pros and cons of hosting your website in India compare to hosting it in other location:

So let’s start with the positive list

  • Super Fast FTP :
    One thing you will surely notice after hosting your website in India, and that is a super fast FTP connection.
    Almost everyone in my customer list who are hosted in India did notice around 100 to 200 times faster FTP compare to hosting in other location. Why? Because of simple reason of low latency.
    What is latency ? in technical term :
    latency is measured by sending a data that is returned to the sender; the round-trip time is considered the latency.
  • SEO benefits:
    As Google and other search engine are getting more evolved and they are giving high purity localisation. So if you are target visitors are from India.  You can learn more about Insight of website ranking factors of Google here.
  • Faster Website:
    If your visitors are from India or even better if from the same location where your site is hosted, then your visitors will notice a faster load time compare to other location.
    For example, you have a server located at datacenter of Mumbai then visitors to Mumbai may see a slightly faster website compare to visitors in Delhi (again latency is the player here).
    but you can have a workaround for this, buy simply deploying a CDN service which is basically mean deploying your copy of your website to the nearest server (edge location) of your website visitors.

Like every coin has two faces, every pro come with some cons, So let me also list Cons of hosting a website in India :

hosting website in India

  • Expensive Hosting :
    Compare to hosting in another country, hosting In India is expensive mainly because of two reasons high bandwidth cost and cost of operating datacenter. How much expensive? almost double.
  • Lack Of Support :
    There are only a few datacenters with good after sale tech support. I have seen so many people keep shifting their hosting from one provider to another mainly because they keep looking for cheap hosting or good after sale service, But creating a balance is a skill.
  • Lack of efficiency and automation:
    Let face it, India is far behind in terms of efficiency and automation when it comes to datacenter in India compare to other datacenters in USA or Canada.
    Lots of DC in India still have “Chalata Hai” attitude which can not be tolerated when it comes to datacenter like critical service.
    But the good thing is people are noticing it and datacenter are changing the way of working and giving priority to automation and cloud services. Recently AWS started its Mumbai, India region which at least for me brought lots of confidence for hosting services in India.
