India is a fast-growing emerging Asian market, showing incredible and optimistic projections for the eCommerce industry. Currently, eCommerce penetration in India is 28%, with lots of room for improvement. India's retail eCommerce CAGR is projected to reach 23% by 2021.
Close to 329.1 million people are projected to buy goods and services online in India by 2020. This means that about 70.7% of internet users in India will have purchased products online. This growth also has a reflection on revenue as well. Retail eCommerce sales are forecasted to grow tremendously, with projections of approximately $16 billion in 2016 to over $45 billion in 2021.

This places India as one of the leading digital markets for mobile eCommerce penetration. About 27% of digital buyers in the country reported making an online purchase via mobile on a monthly basis, and 24% stated purchasing online goods and services weekly.
According to Google, testing shows 20-90% reductions in round-trip time (RTT) latency when serving customers in Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and of course Mumbai. Compared to hosting them in the previous closest regions of Singapore or Tawaian.

Some of the most popular sites in India run on WordPress, such as india.com, indianexpress.com, bookmyshow.com, firstpost.com, and abplive.in. According to a survey by CodeInWP, WordPress as a CMS (47%) is nearly 12 times more popular than Drupal (4%) in India.
The Maharashtra region has a very active local WordPress community with four cities (Mumbai, Nashik, Pune, and Nagpur) having hosted WordCamps. Mumbai and Pune have organized WordCamps for several years now with hundreds of attendees. Watching this rapidly growing community is exciting.

India also contains many notable and award-winning agencies that offer WordPress design and development services; such as Capsicum Mediaworks, Multidots, WPFoxx, Pixelmattic, and KrishaWeb.
Our agency has worked with all the major hosting platforms. Kinsta is crazy fast and the support is stellar! We moved all our clients to Kinsta and haven't looked back.
Absolutely fantastic - cannot rate highly enough in terms of speed, support, and UI. Went from WP Engine to Flywheel then to Kinsta and couldn't be happier.
Hands down one of the best bootstrapped WP hosting companies. Absolutely love their support staff and developer-friendly features (not to mention they are insanely fast).
Kinsta is reliable and makes shipping changes easy. The support team was exceedingly helpful when we needed to migrate our blog. A+ on their support team.
Really love the level of experience and support Kinsta's live chat engineers provide. The 24/7 support is a game-changer for large sites, especially ecommerce.

With Kinsta's professional support we sleep safely at night. And with the blazing fast servers, we serve our customers better than ever before!
I went from a dedicated server at Heart Internet to Kinsta and the speed increase was just incredible. I didn't realize how quick WordPress could be.
Kinsta is the best WordPress host I've had so far. They are quick to help, easy to deal with, and really know their stuff. Plus their servers are super fast!
