Pricing and Support
DRI web hosting solutions are competitively priced. Hosting prices are listed in euros and have two billing options: monthly and annually.
This hosting provider’s refund policy allows a customer to cancel their hosting at any time and get a refund for the remaining months of the current hosting period. Months that have already expired are never refunded.
The DRI hosting infrastructure makes it possible for the vendor to offer a network availability guarantee of 99.95%.
You can reach out to DRI’s customer desk via ticketing system. The vendor has not made available a support email, live chat, or phone number on its website. With such limited means to contact this vendor, it is not surprising that they don’t offer round the clock support. All the same, I inquired about their WordPress hosting solutions via the ticketing system and the support team never sent back a response.
While the vendor is yet to put up a knowledge base on its website, it has an extensive FAQ section.
