Pricing and Support
123.bg’s hosting packages are pretty cheap compared to other vendors of its type. All its prices are listed in Bulgarian lev. It offers an inflexible billing cycle in which clients are needed to enter into annual subscriptions. This can be quite unsettling to users who are not comfortable with long term commitments.
What’s more, it has no money-back guarantee, though it does have a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
You can reach out to 123.bg’s technical support team 24/7 through its email and telephone support. These are the only two channels of communication which the vendor has availed. Unfortunately, it has no ticketing system or live chat.
Having said that, my email to this support team went unanswered.
Thankfully, 123.bg has a comprehensive FAQ section to supplement its technical support team.
