Hostarmada Detailed Introduction
Before starting Hostarmada Review let us just talk about them first.
Hostarmada is a newly launched independent Hosting Company founded in the last quarter of 2019. Please notice one thing that I mentioned them as Independent which means they do not resell hosting from anywhere. They have their own dedicated Team for everything, from server management to Client Support.
As a Starter Hosting Company and as a beginner they have approx 2000 client told by one of their support members and I think its good number. Even I have migrated this blog from siteground to hostrmada after trying their hosting in demo site and checking performence. The reason is mentioned below
Technology used by Hostarmada Hosting
So let's start Hostarmada review with the most important factor of any hosting company i.e. Server Technology and Infrastructure. They have Cloud SSD based server like siteground but they are using Linode Cloud infrastructure instead of Gooogle Cloud on Siteground.
They have one thing that makes their server more powerful than siteground and another provider is LiteSpeed Technology. Now many of you are familiar with LiteSpeed but who are not let me tell you that LiteSpeed is something that enhances your normal Apache server without much interference.
The above image shows after using LiteSpeed the server load reduces to very low. Which means you can handle more visitor and requests on the same server after using LiteSpeed technology. Actually, It balances the load and increases the performance of both Apache and PHP. For More about Litespeed Visit here.
The second most interesting thing about LiteSpeed is, it is sole friendly with WordPress and if you use QUIC free CDN by LiteSpeed your website is going to load faster than the rocket.
The third surprise for you is LiteSpeed Plugin for WordPress. It improves code and image optimization and your caching is going to be super smooth with it. So these are the PROS of Technology used by HostArmada to make their Hosting server more powerful than normal cloud infrastructure.
Server Location Provided by Hostarmada
As a starting company, I am very impressed with HostArmada Server locations. As per my research, and also told by one of their executives (Bogdan Toshev) that they are using Linode Cloud Infrastructure which has a benefit for Indian Users because they are going to get Indian Server.
They have servers in ->
- USA West Fremont, CA,
- South Canada Toronto, ON
- Europe London, UK
- USA Central Dallas, TX
- USA East Newark, NJ
- Europe Frankfurt, DE
- Mumbai India, IN
- Asia, Singapore, SG
- Sydney Australia, AU

Hostarmada Server Uptime
So let's talk about one more fact that you should know while choosing any hosting provider i.e. Uptime of Server.
As an experienced blogger and my research on Hostarmada before the review, I can say with confidence that the server configuration and technology used by them is highly flexible and hence you will never notice any effective downtime.
Here is last few month Uptime details provided by Hostarmada itself about their Uptime.
From the above picture, you can see 100% uptime and Ping of Hostarmada Hosting and this monitoring is done by me personally using freeping.io a free website monitoring tool.

Payment methods is one of most Important things while choosing any product. It can be hosting or domain OR Any tools, Because when you decide to buy a hosting and you goto checkout and your payment method is missing there. How will you feel? Ofcourse Irritating.
So let me tell you here that how many and which payment methods are supported by Hostarmada Hosting.
For this time they accept Visa (USD Enabled) and PayPal (USD enabled). Like other hosting provider they do not offer different site for different country which means local payment methods are not going to work there.
Let's take an example of India, If you are a Indian Customer you should have a International Cross Border Enabled Card to pay on hostarmada Website. In most of case, Indian users do not have such type of cards. So If you are intrested and do not have card just contact me I will help you personally step by Step.

Hostarmada provides traditional cPanel to monitor and Manage hosting and website. I have attached the cPanel Dashboard picture that shows all tools provided by them. So let see them one by one.
They provide all the tools and features that you need to manage your website like Free SSL Certificate for encrypting, Daily backup for making your site ready to restore any time and many more tools like that.

WordPress Management Software inside cPanel
They provide Softcalculous to manage any type of CMS like WordPress, Magneto, BBPress etc.without too much experience with one click. You can easily create and manage your blog using their one-click WordPress Installation.
Free Professional Emails (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am a huge fan of hosting providers that give us Free Professional emails with Encrypted SSL because using professional emails you get more trust and conversion among your customer. Hostarmada Provides the same service in their Cpanel Dashboard.
From here you can create professional email and forward them to your gmail to keep a copy of every email received on your pro email.
Backup for a website is most important thing even from hosting because website crashes are normal and If you have backup you can recover it. Hostarmada have daily backup plugin installed in cPanle, Please note it's not a WordPress plugin. It is integrated with cPanel to store and restore backups.
Every developer and blogger knows, how much is SSL important for your blog when it comes to user trust and security. For the same reason hostarmada provide secure SSL for free with their hosting.
Free Speed optimizaton
Hostarmada offer free website optimization by their team in less than 1 hr. This is really a cool service that everyone will enjoy since no more extra charges for website speed optimization. Generally they use LS cache plugin and optimize it according to your website
