Pricing and Support
Divine Online Solutions’ shared hosting subscriptions aren’t the cheapest on the market, especially considering their limited features and small storage allocations. This vendor also charges setup fees that increase the cost, and you can also pay extra at the checkout for such things as SSL certificates and weekly backups.
On a brighter note, you get a free domain with an annual subscription, plus a 30-day money-back guarantee that should make you feel better about signing up for a full year.
Self-support resources include a blog (which was last updated in 2017), an FAQ page (containing just six questions and the same number of answers), and a knowledge base (containing only one article, about email setup). My test support ticket was answered within 24 hours, but only to enquire about why I had asked my questions:
