There was a trend of hosting business websites outside India which was considered as cheaper and affordable option for SMB’s at that time when there was no existence of reliable hosting providers in India.
Things have changed now and India is getting better in terms of Infrastructure and bandwidth availability. Pricing for hosting in India has come down considerably as competition has increased by entrance of big names such as Godaddy and EIG in Indian hosting market. There are lot of emerging smaller companies offering web hosting services with good customer support in turn winning trust of their local customers.
One of the advantage of hosting in India over US or UK is the increase in the exchange rates of $$ and ££. As a result of the changes in the economic conditions, customers have to pay a higher web hosting price and increase their web hosting budget.
