Net4 has no specialised setup for hosting Drupal sites, other than the "Drupal Landing page" that most hosts end up with. (And you can not expect any special Drupal hosting on any of those shared hosts either)

And like most Indian webhosts, net4 is bad and their support team hardly knows what they are doing, at least when I last interacted with them a couple of months back.

I would recommend that you go ahead with one of the hosts mentioned on My personal recommendation is Bluehost, if you need a shared hosting for a small Drupal site.

If you have a pretty huge site and if you are looking at web-hosting platforms built specifically for Drupal you should be looking at Acquia, Get Pantheon, or Omega8. All of them offer free developer accounts and you could try all of them before buying one.

Thanks a lot for your information.

Currently we ar tied up to till february next year.Definitely will migrate to one of your recommendations after february.

Till then can I make the new website work TEMPORARILY on
Though they dont have any specialised hosting for drupal.Can I do it myself with some effort.
Feedback has been around that drupal websites hosted there are very slow as their database is very slow.

To put it simple can I host drupal website temporarily or is it better to wait till we migrate to other host after february next year.Thanks.

Totally agree with Tanay...

Shared hosting in India are worst for hosting Drupal websites. They don't even provide SSH with any shared hosting plan..


I too agree with Tanay,

I too agree with Tanay, Indian servers are not capable to host drupal site, they are for mass consumption purpose like static websites, not for websites which are build on drupal.
