The initiative highlights India-based web hosting services that provide local purchase and support experiences, and enable lesser website latency than those hosted in the United States
HostGator India, an Endurance International Group brand and leading provider of shared, reseller and Virtual Private Server hosting solutions, has announced its support for ‘Make In India’ with the launch of ‘Host In India,’ an initiative for Indian businesses. Indian brands that are looking to establish their online presence can enhance their overall marketability through deploying Indian web hosting services powered by geo-based hosting from GPX- India’s leading tier IV datacentre for faster website loading time and 99.99% uptime guarantee.
Through this initiative, HostGator India aims to drive adoption of local hosting solutions amongst web designers, developers, bloggers, startups, enterprise businesses, application hosts and ecommerce sites that experience high traffic in India. Customers will have access to local language support with trained staff fluent in popular regional languages as well as the option to make transactions in local currency.
‘Host In India’ works in-sync with the ‘Make in India’, ‘Startup India’ and ‘Digital India’ initiatives of the Government of India, which are aimed at digitally and technologically empowering our economy. Through local geo-hosting in India, customers will be able to boost their website latency speed in comparison to sites hosted in the United States, leading to minimal lag and quicker load times.
“India represents a tremendous growth opportunity for HostGator India considering that we’ve been quite focused on enabling startups, SMBs and new ventures to establish themselves online efficiently,” said Shashank Mehrotra, Managing Director, Endurance India. “The government of India has been making efforts towards enabling local language content and developing the digital ecosystem so that even non-English citizens can communicate online in their native language. We are thrilled to contribute to the Indian government’s initiatives like ‘Digital India’ and ‘Make in India’ by imparting a local flavour in the digital ecosystem with the ‘Host In India’ initiative.”
The major features of the Host In India initiative include:
1. Localized geo-hosting (GPX): GPX is the leading tier IV datacenter in India and offers a 99.99% uptime certified facility so that HostGator India’s servers are as close as possible to website visitors, leading to faster loading time for the site. Hosting in India also augments the paid and organic marketing efforts of brands.
2. Local currency, local payments: The initiative provides the option to make transactions in Indian Rupee (INR), ensuring that all proceeds from the transaction remain unaffected by fluctuating foreign exchange rates. Moreover, the initiative supports multiple modes of payments including NEFT, RTGS, NET banking, bank deposits and credit and debit cards. HostGator India has partnered with PayTM for this initiative. The partnership aims to leverage PayTM’s Wallet and Payment Gateway Services for ease of use and convenience for Indian consumers.
3. Local support: HostGator India remains committed to providing 24/7 support, which is available through phone, chat, tickets, email and social media platforms. Its support staff is trained to help customers in Hindi, English and a host of other regional languages.
With approximately 80% of customers reported being satisfied with HostGator India and the services it provides, the company is constantly working to improve and refine that service and support and achieve its goal of becoming the world leader in the global web hosting market. HostGator India has received numerous awards and reviews across the board for their services.
