Web hosting company BigRock today announced the launch of Virtual Private Servers (VPS solutions) hosted in India.
Earlier, BigRock VPS solutions were hosted in the U.S.
BigRock VPS hosting solutions promise a guaranteed uptime of 99.9 percent to its customers.
The web hosting provider is trying to address market demand for cost effective solutions. The new service offers enough flexibility to Indian SMB companies. New start-ups and ecommerce based portals are some of the target segments for BigRock.
The VPS hosting solutions from India are available starting at Rs 1,199 / month for 1 year with .88GHz, 512MB RAM, 20GB HDD, 100GB transfer and 1 free IP.
BigRock VPS hosting enables customers to avail the control of dedicated servers at the price of a shared server. The solution incorporates technology from Dell, NetApp, cPanel, Centos and Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to offer a manageable VPS experience.
Shashank Mehrotra, general manager & business head, BigRock, said: “Our VPS services come bundled with dedicated resources and full root access so that customers can avail all the features and functions of a dedicated server at no additional cost.”
“If the target audience for businesses resides majorly in India, then they can opt for local servers since the load time of websites hosted in US will be slightly more for the audience accessing it from India and vice versa for an international audience,” Mehrotra added.
The company said the selection of a local server will also ensure faster response times for tech support leading to quicker resolution for any end user queries.
