Did you know that a 1-second delay in page load time can cause a 7% decrease in the conversion rate of your e-commerce website? Or that 40% of the visitors to you website will abandon you website after 3 seconds? These are just some of the scary statistics about the effects of a slow website/web application. One of the key components that contribute to a slow website is latency. Latency is the time taken by a server to receive and process a request from a client. It is largely dependent on the distance between the server and the client(your website visitor). By hosting your website on BigRock's India servers, you will significantly reduce the effect of latency on the speed of your website. Just take a look at the screenshots below:

Connecting to a Hosting Server in the India
As you can see, the latency of a server hosted in India is more than 30X lower. This is because you are connecting to the server from India, and the distance that your request has to travel is significantly less than what it has to travel to make a request to our US-hosted servers. This means your website loads faster, your customers don't leave your website, and your revenue increases.
We have also tied up with the only Certified Tier 4 Datacenter in India, GPX. You can read more about our datacenter here. By ensuring that our servers are as close to your website visitor as possible, and by going with a premium datacenter provider, BigRock is providing you with the best possible shared hosting product.
Cloud hosting is the latest form of hosting that has become extremely popular over the past few years. The main concept of cloud hosting is "Divide and Rule" – the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across a cluster of servers that work together, termed as "the cloud". This greatly reduces chances of any downtimes in case of a server malfunction.
When a website is hosted on shared hosting, the website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds. Typically in this setup, all domains share resources, such as RAM and CPU from the same server. Cloud hosting, on the other hand, offers nearly unlimited ability to handle high traffic spikes. On Cloud, your website is hosted not only on one but on several servers connected to work as one. Your websites don’t depend on only one Server– even if one server is inaccessible, the Data is retrieved and processed by the other available servers with no downtime.
Our cloud hosting offers high reliability. Cloud Sites automatically distributes three mirrored copies of your data across multiple devices to ensure safety and protection. The website is hosted on a virtual partition which draws its resources, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers.
We use Ceph Storage, which gives 3N level of redundancy. In computing, Ceph is completely distributed without a single point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level, and freely available. Ceph replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, requiring no specific hardware support. As a result of its design, the system is both self-healing and self-managing, aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
You are responsible for your backups and web content. We create our own weekly backups of Cloud servers, and we can restore your web, email and database content from those per your request. However, this is NOT a procedure you should rely on to keep copies of your content safe; we recommend you make your own backups. You can take a backup from your cPanel.

How much bandwidth and disk Space does the hosting plan include?
Our web hosting plans provide sufficient resources for a personal or
small business website. There are no set limits on the bandwidth and
disk space for Shared and Reseller Hosting.
However, all customers need to be compliant with our Terms of Service.
For eg., Your website should not utilize more than 25% server
resources for a duration longer than 90 seconds. Also, the web hosting
plan should not be used for file storage or sharing. While it is rare,
we might have to suspend your account, if the resource usage is
affecting the customers on the same server.
What if I exceed the allotted server usage?
In case you exceed the bandwidth, we will send an email asking you to
limit your usage and we might throttle your site’s bandwidth to ensure
other users on the system are not affected.
Our sales agents are currently unavailable. Please leave a message and we
will get back to you.
