Micronet also offers VPS in India. Though it advertised a VPS in Hyderabad at the Ctrls datacenter, it actually allotted a VPS in Go4Hosting’s Noida datacenter. The performance of the Noida VPS is as follows:


CPU model : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E31220 @ 3.10GHz
Number of cores : 1
CPU frequency : 3092.926 MHz
Total amount of ram : 128 MB
Total amount of swap : 128 MB
System uptime : 15 days, 20:15,
Download speed : (961KB/s)
I/O speed : 37.4MB/s

Micronet’s support is slow and non-convincing.

The other contender is hostgator.in. However, their pricing is somewhat more expensive than the pricing of VR.org (hostvirtual), Leapswitch and Micronet. Hostagtor.in is co-located with the Ctrls Datacenters in Mumbai and Hyderabad.

The biggest downside to using a VPS in India is that there are auto-throttles in place to curb your speed. VR.org makes it clear that the speed is limited here to 10Mbps for a 1 GB RAM plan. If you contrast it with the USA plan, you can see that the limit is 100Mbps. The others VPS providers are not as explicit. This becomes a big problem when you transfer files to and from the VPS. However, if you do not intend to transfer heavy files, you should be OK.

    I recommend Leapswitch VPS if you're from India. I'm having VPS from them over 3months, and the network speed, uptime, support & PRICE just unbeatable 🙂

    Well, I had a shared plan and then a Level 3 VPS with hostgator.in. They co-locate with Ctrls at the Mumbai and Hyderabad datacenters. The quality and speed of support is average/ good. However, the downside is that the prices are too high. For instance, the Level 3 plan offers a (weak) 1.13 GHz machine with 768 MB RAM for a fee of Rs. 2,250 per month. In contrast, VR.Org offers at a 1 GB RAM VPS with 2.5GHz CPU at the Netmagic Datacenter of Chennai for Rs. 1200 ($ 20). VR.org's support is better than that of hostgator.in. So, I don't see any point in going to hostgator.in (or even hostdime.in).

    Leapswitch is a good contender at this point in time and can offer good deals.
