Pricing and support
Pricing for BDWEB IT’s hosting plans is very affordable, with the entry-level plan costing less than a cup of coffee per month. This level of service includes a relatively small amount of data and less features than more expensive competitor plans. Prices amongst Bangladeshi hosting providers varies considerably, but BDWEB IT’s prices fall somewhere in the middle. It is cheaper than some hosts but much more expensive than others. However, for non-SSD hosting, it has higher than average prices.
Compared to international hosting providers, prices here are on the low end with plan costs averaging 40%-70% less than many hosts.
Plans are available in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual terms with a discount given for longer hosting agreements. Discounts over the monthly plan at the time of writing this review are as follows: 5% discount for quarterly, 11% discount semi-annual, and 33% discount for annual.
Telephone support is offered on a 24/7 basis and customer support can also be reached through email, skype, and online contact form. I reached out to sales support and received a reply later the same day.
