Your guide to buying a hosting plan

You wish to launch your website and are on the look out for a suitable hosting plan from a reliable service provider and at the right price. Depending upon the programming platform in which you have built your website you may need to choose between linux and windows hosting platforms.

One of the major issues faced by all of us is how to select the right hosting provider from several thousands of them. In this article I have compared the same configuration hosting plan from 4 leading hosting providers in India. I have given a comparison for both linux and windows hosting plans. Hope it will help you choose the right service provider.

Note that I have compared across essential features only. Other features that are not compared, are of less significance and are by and large common across hosting companies.
