Want to know if BigRock Hosting is right for you?

Let's check it out.

Reliability

99.9% Uptime on VPS Hosting

Generally BigRock Hosting is reliable and rarely has any issues. The servers are mostly USA based and are solid to the core which makes the network impeccably strong. They do offer a 99.9% uptime service on VPS Hosting, and looking around at reviews you don't come across any downtime problems for shared hosting or specialised hosting either.

All this talk is backed up by a 30-day money back guarantee so if you aren't 100% happy with the service and feel it lacks any kind of transparency then you can get your money back.

Features

3 Main Plans With Unlimited Space & Bandwidth

There are 3 main hosting types that are offered with Big Rock and they are Shared hosting, Specialized hosting, and Reseller hosting, all tailored to a different type of customer. With each hosting plan you get a great deal of basic features, but don't expect any of them to really wow you as they are standard web building features.

You standard mid-range shared hosting plans come with unlimited bandwidth, space, 5GB of database space, CPanel, and unlimited transfer. Many features are missing from the Essential plan but as this is the cheapest option of just over $2 per month you can see why it is stripped back so much. Nonetheless its a great plan for beginners.

Support

Solid Tech Support & Customer Service

Now many people may feel that because the company is based in Indian, that there must be some catch to the prices and the service offered. The simple fact is that BigRock are genuinely a decent company that offer a 24/7 support service to its customers. With live chat and phone support available around the clock, and qualified technicians on hand to help you solve a problem, you are in good hands.

There are also a few extra support options such as a knowledge base packed full of articles and tutorials on everything you need to know about hosting, maintaining and marketing your website.

Pricing

Rock Solid Hosting For Little Money

When it comes to pricing there are many price bands you will see, for example with Shared Hosting comes a number of different sub-plans, and then under that a number of different prices depending on the length of time you want to commit to, so it can get somewhat confusing.

In your typical shared hosting plan you have the option to go with a Linux or a Windows setup, with Linux plans being the slightly cheaper of the two. Therefore if you wanted to take out a Linux plan for a minimum 1 year term you would pay $4.29 per month. However, if you decide to commit to a 10 years plan you could save BIG TIME, as the price comes down to $3.49 per month.

The cheapest plan comes in as low as $1.59 per month when you go for a 10 year plan.

User-Friendly

CPanel Comes as a Helping Hand

Every hosting that comes with CPanel as part of the package is always a user-friendly hosting company in my book. The very fact that CPanel becomes a portal to many different areas of your hosting makes it easy to navigate your way around to databases, email forwarders, and sub-domains (to mention just a few tools you can get to).

If that's not all, you can buy a domain from BigRock as well, so this ties in nicely with your hosting plan.

Summary

A Basic Service Full of Class

BigRock act as a very affordable way of getting your website hosted, with plans that start from as little as $1.59 per month. They may not be for everyone, and by that I mean they are more focused on helping smaller businesses and individuals as some of the more robust advanced features are missing from the hosting plan line-up.

With a strong support area, decent features, and guarantees to give you that confidence boost, BigRock really do a great job in this sector.

Pros

  • Affordable
  • 24/7 Support
  • 99.9% Uptime
  • Good discounts for yearly purchases

Cons

  • Based In India (Which could put people off)
  • The Essential plan hardly has any features or high specs
