Hillarious customer support. No one on the support end no replies through live chat. Waiting for hours and still no useful reply.

Even if they reply they don't know what they are saying I guess copying some sort of scripts they have,

its been 3 days and every single day my site goes down at the very same time and than comes back online after a few hours.

once their live chat responded told me that there was an issue in my site and than disappeared when I asked that if there is an issue with my site how could it possibly come up once again all on its own after some time.?

DarazHost is a good Web Hosting Company if you're just starting out.
But, Sometimes It sucks because they doesn't stand on all the promises they does on the homepage.
Prices are preety good but only if you buy annual plans. Monthly Pricing are so much expensive as compared to their features

DarazHost Introduction

DarazHost is a US-based hosting company headquartered in Brooklyn, New York. The company offers various hosting plans, but the focus appears to be on small business. It states that its goal is to provide high-quality managed web hosting services at competitive prices.

At the same time, DarazHost prides itself on providing professional support and excellent uptime. The company sees its tech support team as a market differentiator, claiming that it makes it the “preferred choice” for various individuals and businesses.

DarazHost is a relatively new company. It was founded in 2014, and since then it has managed to attract over 45,000 customers. It currently hosts more than 90,000 websites.

Services and Specializations

DarazHost offers the usual array of hosting services. They offer shared hosting designed for individuals, hobbyists, and small businesses. This includes specially focused WordPress hosting. They also offer VPS and reseller hosting for individual developers and companies that need a more elaborate infrastructure. (Note: the VPS hosting is available through interserver.net, not directly from DarazHost.) Their website claims that dedicated servers and scalable cloud hosting solutions for businesses are coming soon. As of this writing, they are not available. These will be handled by a sister company ArkaHost, and should launch soon, according to DarazHost.

For the time being, the focus is clearly on smaller clients, as DarazHost only provides WordPress and shared hosting plans in-house.

The usual range of ancillary services is available as well, ranging from domain name registration to various technical support services.

DarazHost Infrastructure

Information on the company’s infrastructure is hard to come by. There is no information on the specific hardware used by DarazHost, but a closer look at the shared plans offers some information.

All plans come with generous or unlimited storage, which implies that they rely on hard drives rather than solid state drives (SSDs). The uptime guarantee is 99.9%. All DarazHost shared hosting plans appear to be cloud-based.

Support and Customer Service

All DarazHost plans come with 24/7/365 support and a 30-day money back guarantee. Shared hosting plans come with free daily backups, free setup (for all but the cheapest plan), and optional advanced security features.

DarazHost provides round the clock phone support via a US landline (not toll free). As noted earlier, DarazHost claims its tech support team sets it apart from other small hosting companies.

Summary

DarazHost has been on the market for under two years, which can be good or bad news, depending on how you look at it. The upside is that new companies usually have to invest more effort than established ones to attract and retain customers. They are more likely to go the extra mile for small customers, although this does not have to be the case.

The downside is obvious: DarazHost does not provide a number of more advanced services, such as dedicated and cloud hosting. The site also references Windows hosting, which is not available yet. It is essentially a work in progress, although these services should launch soon.

Due to its location and 24/7 phone support, DarazHost could be an interesting choice for users located in North America — individuals or small businesses who don’'t need a lot in the way of hardware, but feel the need for round the clock support.
