The base Linux package is very affordable. It comes with 1 GB disk space, 25 GB data transfer, and enough resources for most everyday users. For customers who require more websites or high resource quotas, the next three packages are also pretty well priced. You have to pay extra for domain registration and SSL certificates.
This company only offers one-year terms, which is a little strict, but they do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee to make you more comfortable with the commitment. While prices are displayed in GBP, AUD, CNY, INR, TRY, CAD, EUR, RUB, and USD, these are converted into INR for payment.
To get 24/7 support, you can contact them by email, live chat (not working when I tried) or phone. They also provide a substantial knowledge base that helped me answer many questions without having to wait for an email response.
