    Default Net4.in hosting review

    Net4.in web hosting review

    The only advice from me would be STAY AWAY FROM net4.in and that will save you a lot of time money and energy.

    I got a linux hosting account from net4.in 5 days ago and the site I am trying to host with them is still not up yet. I also paid Rs1500 to set up a mysql database which I dont know why is it sold seperately when every one on earth doesnt charge anything extra... well I needed an Indian IP address for this website so I just bought it.

    Day 1 :

    I made a payment and I never recieved any e-mail with ftp details and control panel login details and stuff the reason being they dont have a control panel... use ftp and that is it.

    I had to call them up to find out the name servers and the ip address to use ftp while my domain propogated and the guy I spoke to made me clear that he was doing me a favor well that said and done I got my ftp detail over the phone.

    Then starts the real story.. I connected using filezilla and it just wont connect.. I pinged the ip and it was offline .. an hour two hours and it finally came online and I tried again and it just wont connect.
    Finally after 4-5 hours I was able to get to the user name and password authinticated message but the file list wont populate and I called these guys who just told me to use cute ftp as thats the only client that works.. I got cute ftp and was able to get in then I was going to upload the wordpress blog script on there but it just wont upload as connection kept breaking.

    I called support again and they asked me to check trace route and all that bullshit.. well I have a lot of shared hosting accounts with different companies and Ive never had this issue and my connection was fine as well.. I called again and again and they said my bandwidth was restricted and they have set it right now and I uploaded the wordpress script and installed it and went to sleep.

    Day 2 :

    I woke up and thought will do the initial set up of the blog and get it up and running so I changed the permalink settings but wordpress couldnt create .htaccess file.. I created the .htaccess file manually and then uploaded into the root well... it disappeared.. The reason being they dont allw .htacess files Their support guys dont even know what a .htaccess file is leave alone sorting this issue and I asked then to change my permissions so I can use the .htaccess file to rewrite my urls but they say its their company policy and cant be changed...

    I kind of gave up the idea and thoght lets just delete the whole thing and start afresh and I couldnt delete the .htaccess file from there due to which the site is now giving an error and thats the only reason so I called support so they can delete the .htaccess file from the root so I can continue with my thing they asked me to raise a ticket which I did : TT-20080807-175449 I was promised that this will be done within 2 hours... The ticket was raised : Request Date 8/7/2008 5:54 PM So the waiting starts.... call aftr call and the whole night went by no resolution .. well there was nothing to resolve all they need to do is use the admin user id to delete everything from my ftp account..

    Day 3:

    I started my day by calling them again and again and kept on calling through out the day and same promise.. I have escalated this matter and all that bullshit.. well there is nothign complicated about this.. just delete the god damn .htaccess file from there and its done... Nothing happens.. the day is gone again with hundreds of supees spent in phone calls.

    Day 4:

    Same story as day 3 but a litle heated artument from both sides and still same promise will get a call back and all that crap.

    Day 5:

    I called just an hour ago before I started this review and this time they say it was second saturday today so no server admin guys were working and tommorow is sunday and this issue will only be resolved on Monday.




    I hate to say that these fellow country men of mine are good for nothign and are just a waste of time.

    The only sites you can host with them are static 2-3 page sites and you cant even host a wordpress blog on their hosting.


    I will keep you guys posted on this and I will write a review on WHT as well besides all other webmaster forums. I would request all bloggers who read this post to kindly write a post on your blog and link to this page so anyone looking for a review of net4.in webhosting gets to see this page on top on every search engine.. althought I will make some efforts myself including writing posts on all the blogs I run myself.


    Net4.in is all bullshit and thats what it is. Its a waste of time and money.

    If you were thinking about hosting your site at net4.in then I sure saved you a lot of hassel didnt I?

    ------------------------

    I forgot to add that I asked them if I can have a refund after all this hassel and they havent been able to resolve any of my issues and their customer support says thats not possible... hence this review..

    By the way for those who dont know : Net4.in was previously net4domains.com who earned such a bad name among webmasters and were in a big dispute with a celebrity that they have changed their domain as well...

    What a shame that these guys are still in business.

    I will keep you all posted on this matter.

    I dont get your point.. what would registrar info help with? I did not register the domain with net4.in if thats what you meant.
    Domain has got nothing to do with this matter. Its net4.in hosting which is a problem not my domain registrar.

    as per i can see we are on 70.86.183.34 which is located in Houston (US) if this one is working fine then why you want to go for indian one.. when you already know that indian one is giving lot many problems in begning then dont you think its better to stay on stable one...

    This new hosting account was not for this site.. I have a lot of other websites besides this one. The reason I need an Indian host is that it helps a lot in search engines if you get a local ip address.

    Hey net4.in guys I have some good news for you Try searching for the below terms on Google ( I guess thats where you get your net customers from)

    net4.in reviews
    net4.in review
    net4.in webhosting reviews
    net4.in web hosting review
    net4.in hosting review
    net4.in hosting
    net4.in web hosting
    net4.in webhosting

    Check out whats the number one results I need a pat on my back for being a SEO wizz Dont I ... yeh I like to pimp myself once in a while like every one else.

    Web hosting is a very competetive business and having such a negetive (but true) net4.in web hosting review at no one on all major search engines will give you your hosting business a big blow.. and I truly believe that you guys dont deserve to be in this business due to the quality of your service and a complete dis regard of what your customer is going through while you are minting money every day from unsuspecting customers.

    Its another day gone and my problem stands where it was 5 days ago.. I am not able to use your stupid hosting even after paying for it due to your sheer lazyness and the fact that your system admins dont work on weekeneds.

    God save webmasters who host their sites on net4.in servers.

    This stupid issue which shouldnt take more then 10 seconds to resolve has now been pending since 7th of august ticket no TT-20080807-175449

    I called up just now and was told that this will be resolved today... what the F ... I said why cant you sort this out right now and he said we have a seperate system admins department..

    All I want is them to delete everything from my ftp as I cannot delete the .htaccess files from my own account due to lack of permissions.

    Net4.in webhosting sucks big time.

    If you are looking for a web host get a real webhost and steer clear of net4.in

    I will keep you all posted on how and where this is going. I am pretty sure it will take a lot more calls before they move their lazy ass and sort this out.

    I also have bad experience with net4.in

    Their system is extremely inflexible, and their support does not answer the questions that are asked.

    First, I ordered web-hosting for a domain I already own. It turns out, that I cannot simply point mydomain.com to their servers. I need to move the whole domain to their DNS servers, so they can manage it. I don't want to do that, since I have my own DNS servers, which allow me for example SRV and TXT records - a feature they don't have in their DNS panel.

    Second, I bought a new domain with them, and asked to get this domain moved to my web-hosting offer. But, after lots of back-and-forth on the ticket, it was closed with "sorry, our system does not support this".

    So, now, I am stuck with paying 1 year for web-hosting + domain that I cannot use for anything! Big thumbs-down net4.in!

    India hosting companies are not familiar with the latest technology their just buy the hosting controllers and installed on their server even these guys are depends on software vendor support to reply to their clients... i also face problem with in 2005 I register a domain with Net4.in but within months i shifted from them.

    Why don't you try Managed DDNS service...

    Default Now hosted with websideshop

    Now i have hosted with WEBSIDESHOP it seems they run u.s servers..pricing, server uptime and support are great.

    The support people configured google apps for me...now its working fine..

    I have hosted with WEBSIDESHOP for the following reasons..


    1. Servers are hosted in a reputed datacenter theplanet where hostgator have their servers

    2. To my knowledge the only web hosting company that provides 24 * 7 support with greater response time

    3.Pricing are damn cheaper ....it starts from rs. 500/year which is enough for me to host my blog and forum.


    now they have got free domain for life offer for selected plans.....which was not available when i bought my hosting

    It is hard to compare a "generic" theplanet web-hosting company, with net4.in, which is based in India.

    Hopefully you mean with lesser response time?

    Prices are comparable to other hosts. For example one.com you get 1st year free, after that 800INR/year, but 3GB space instead of 100MB. 100MB space is very little these days.

    what do mean by generic here

    i said these are the reasons why i chose....hope you understand

    100 mb is more than enough for company websites running few pages.....they need not waste paying monthly 500 ...it's enough to run wordpress blog, smf forum

    This shows that they are running highly overloaded servers

    I mean that there are >1000 web-hosting offers given by companies who rent dedicated servers at theplanet and install some web-hosting solution (Alternatively by more lazy companies, just reselling theplanet's managed hosting services). Comparing that kind of solution to a hosting-solution based in India, running on the company's own servers (I don't know if they actually run the servers themselves. Perhaps someone knows that?), can never be fair if you consider only the price.

    I am comparing yearly 800INR vs. yearly 500INR.

    It shows nothing about that. Disk space has nothing to do about CPU load. Maybe it shows that you should not depend on their backup (because they give disk space out cheap), but, you should not do that with ANY hosting provider. Make your own backup and you are safe if they go down.

    Greater or lesser response time, which do you prefer ?

    Their packages are little bit costlier but server are very stable and their performance.

    Ya when first time i checked i also shocked why they are charging so i send email to their support team they told me that 1200 is for Domain registration and for Managed DNS service. and every domain comes with 500 MB free web space which they included and bundled registration.

    Registration + Managed DNS Servcie + Hosting (500 MB) + 2 MYSQL DB

    The above information i got from them few months back when they revise their domain registration service i got their newsletter....

    ^^but they say that domain is not with hosting (so you need to purchase a new domain with them)
    now you tell that a domain has 500mb storage with it...

    now take a look on a standard/typical domain/dns/php,mysql plan Domain (.com) 400/-(foremost) 100/-(dns) and if the host is a good based one, they will give 500mbs of space for not more than 200 bucks.. so that makes 700/-

    i was using a domain plan with Indialinks(that expired this month) for 450/- for domain and 100 for dns... my sql was hosted somewhere else.. and i was on a 1gb plan with unlimited hosting, it was costing much like this 50k premium host...
    and my preference is obviously a us one..

    you mentioned this with domain reg.. 500mb of storage, so wont this be in vain (cause if a customer wanna buy a hosting with them, than he has to buy a domain with them, cause its not there and you have to reg. .for it. so why is this?? extra 500mbs??)

    You are right i send email to their sales team and they revert me with customized package like .....

    If i already registered a domain then uses their DNS to point my domain to their Hosting server

    So i update their DNS in godaddy...

    My requirement is for a small hosting pack which is not a big hosting requirement like additional addon's so i ask they i need a basic hosting if you can do something for me so they provide a 1 GB pack + 1 Msql +PHP preloaded for 1250/- per year without registering domain with them.

    you just try to contact them surely they must have something because web prices are just for show case actual prices will be differ just contact them with your requirement.

    yes. Sure. Web prices are always negotiable. I think it needs to settle with its hosting plans a little. 58000Rs, is going to be too harsh for everyone. Besides this. What are the ping times.

    Ya i know but still big companies prefer enterprise based hosting facilities like if a company is going to host very confidential website and important database and some extra security they prefer costly packages because of their requirements is very complex...

    Well here is the ping of the server were website is hosted....

    70 also ok, in india max acceptable is 150 max if it goes behind 150 then the server is behind many routers and firewalls becasue on every router and firewall and on very NOD between the carriers 6.5 ms is delayed.

    because in India all ISP are connected through nation internet exchange Noida so it takes some time to route the traffic between ISP's...

    Default Net4 is the worst hosting company...!!

    Hi All,
    I have never seen a proud company like net4.
    They are the biggest cheater related to hosting and net related service.
    On January 10 we have purchased a hosting for our site www@englishlearning@co@in . This is a word press site and before purchasing we have been assured that word press site will work fine on their hosting. We uploaded our web site on Feb 10 and from then till March 10 the site did not worked properly.
    Our daily task was to file a ticket and tack with their customer care and that also without any solution. We had a talk with multiple people and even their Sr. Manager Customer Care Ms. Anamilka Mukherjee. But they are all helpless or we can say they are big cheaters.
    We lost a huge amount of money in between and finally we transfer our hosting to US server.
    We asked net4 to refund back our money because they did not able to provide good hosting. They said money will not be refunded back.
    We again visited them on May 10 and ask them to point the hosting to our new HTML web site www@mindgenius@in. They again they will not able to do so as we have purchased the web site for englishlearning.co.in.
    I bloody donít understand that they even donít provide us proper service and also they donít want to entertain in other ways.
    I am in search of companies or individual who can jointly file a case against net 4 for their unprofessional behavior.
    My direct contact no is 9711433853.

    I totally agree! I have had nightmares with them!

    Be aware of net4.in ! I would say that any number of times! Their staff are unresponsive, arrogant to the core!

    Their objective is to fleece you and make money and ultimate not deliver!

    BE AWARE DONT GET STUCK WITH NET4.IN

    Yes, Net4.in is really bad. I have bad bad experiences with them. Their support is even bad. In India I would rate Tata Communications as best and then Ctrls.in is also good.

    Angry Pure Scum

    Net4.in is pure scum.
    They charged my debit card, then they failed the order.
    Their service was crap. I'd to call 20 times just to get thru. Their online tickets suck, they close the ticket without providing satisfactory responses.
    After a lot of nagging they refunded the amount in kind to a so-called cyberwallet, which is totally useless coz I'd NEVER be buying anything from them again.
    I still have to hear from them about my refund. been a month.

    I havent see worse service in my life.

    Moreover their site net4.in is so bloody slow n unresponsive most of the time.

    Even if this is the last service left on earth, dont go for it.

    Seems you've a less technical knowledge and you don't know how to create .htaccess file in FTP..


    - Did you ask this 'htaccess" related question to their sales staff?(Sales staff only manage sales related query) :P
    - Are you sure that you purchase a linux hosting plan or windows hosting plan?

    I think Its a fake review and you're just try to harm their business..


    More suspicious: Your WHT Profile location show "UK" then why you purchase a hosting/SERVER From a India?

    @ tholethol

    I know how to create a .htaccess file and this forum is running very well to prove that. I have been a webmaster since you were running around in your chaddis so I know what I am talking about.

    I asked every which question that needs to be asked and their staff was good for nothing.

    I purchased a linux hosting plan and had to pay extra to create a mysql database and I still have the communication in case there is a law suit I have my two feet to stand in the court of law.

    My WHT profile says UK because I am not a tree and can move around across the globe. At the time when I created that WHT profile I was living in UK and I still have a house there.

    Why purchase hosting server in India when my location was UK?

    You dont know what you are talking about. I live in India now but this website is hosted in USA... should I have moved this site to India now that I live here? You have a lot of learning to do yourself. Do you even know what the whole internet thing is all about?

    Fake review to harm their business? Aap Hindi mein "chutiyon" wali baat kar rahe hain sir ji... Get a clue!

    I never said net4.in will save you money and time. I said reading my review will save you time and money by not doing business with this company. Please go through the review again.

    Post what you want to post on any forum you like. Its a free world. I am not going to edit your posts I have better things to do and I am not here to build an image for myself and nor do I want to prove anything to you. You just dont count.

    Digest the fact that things you accused me for have been clarified very well and you dont have a leg to stand on here.

    I am partner of Net4India and I am reselling products of Net4 since two years. I didn't face any problem with Net4. Uploading files using FTP is not at all a problem but FTP-Secure works slow if ISP connection is slow. Net4 supports FTP-Secure only and not unsecure FTP.

    In past, I was partner of square brothers. Their servers were located in Dallas Softlayer Technologies Data Center and later they were shifted to CTRLS, Hyderabad. I experienced hell with square brothers when their servers were at Dallas. So, I deserted the resellership program of square brothers and joined with Net4. Net4's servers are much faster compared to square brothers servers.
