Host Malabar Review and Interview
Host Malabar offers high-powered, exceptionally affordable hosting solutions, coupled with exceptional 24/7 support. Besides this, there are plenty of things that make the hosting company special, such as the traffic-boosting feature; Attracta. I’ve discovered that Host Malaber is an all-round great hosting option for all.
It Started With A Blog
Like many companies out there, Host Malabar’s founder, Anoop Kumar, began his business journey with a single blog. After this, he tried his hand at reseller hosting which was very successful. And, the next logical step was to fully commit to building and growing a hosting business. Here’s what Anoop told me:
“I started a website/blog in 2008. During this period my friends asked me for a new hosting account. So I purchased a reseller account from my provider and gave it to my friends. It increased one by one and finally there were 1000+ websites hosted on my reseller account. During this time, I had no time to attend the tickets for support. So, I resigned from my bank job and fully entered the hosting business”.
Furthermore, Anoop told me that Host Malabar’s very own datacentre is currently under construction, which is a magnificent achievement.
Customer Service Is Key
Host Malabar has many ways to get in touch, should you need support. You can choose live chat, email, Skype or its dedicated ticket support system which has a support overview option. Support is available around the clock, which is good news for customers.
You can read some excellent customer testimonials on the Host Malabar website, most of which have rated the company 5 stars. In their reviews, customers describe Host Malabar as friendly, amazing, and cheap. One review even refers to the ticket system, explaining that tickets are attended to “within minutes”, which I think is very impressive.
Additionally, Anoop told me that Host Malabar’s support is one of its greatest strengths and is the one aspect that he is most proud of about his company. And, judging by what I’ve seen and read, this is not surprising.
Popular Services from Host Malabar
Host Malabar customers are very fond of the company’s Unlimited shared hosting plan, as well as its 8GB VPS and 32GB dedicated servers. Host Malabar guarantees an unbeatable 100% uptime thanks to its reliable, high-performing servers.
Shared Hosting Plans
Host Malabar’s shared hosting plans begin at RS.649 per year. This remarkably cheap hosting plan is named “Standard” and will get you:
- 1GB web space
- 5GB bandwidth
- 1 domain
- 2FTP accounts
- 5 MySQL databases
This plan is a real bargain and includes a Plesk control panel, along with Host Malabar’s famous ticket and chat support.
The Unlimited plan, which Anoop told me is the favourite among shared hosting customers, costs only RS.3371. The plan features:
- Unlimited web space
- 300GB bandwidth
- 5 add on domains

- 10 MySQL databases
As I’m sure you can see, the Unlimited plan is incredible value for money.
VPS Hosting Plans
Host Malabar offers a multitude of VPS options and plans. You can choose from Turbo, High Ram, Budget, and even free VPS hosting, among others. Unlike shared hosting options, the VPS plans are priced monthly. There is also a small set-up fee.
To give you an idea of costs, the budget VPS plan, offering 8GB RAM, has a setup fee of INR.450 and a monthly cost of INR.500. The plan offers 4 CPU cores, 300GB SSD disk space, and unlimited bandwidth.
Dedicated Server Plans
Host Malabar has loads of dedicated servers to choose from. Prices for these servers begin at RS.1400 per month with a RS.1000 setup fee. This server includes 2GB RAM, 160GB HDD, and unlimited bandwidth.
The purchasing process is also very straight forward. Simply select your server, go through your domain options, configure, confirm and then buy. And of course, if you have any questions along the way, simply get in touch with the team for a fast response.
To Summarise My Review of Host Malabar
It’s obvious to me that Host Malabar excels in at least three different areas; its low prices, its high uptimes, and its thorough and rapid support system. In my opinion, there’s not much more you can ask for from a hosting provider.
