Pricing and Support
Unix shared hosting plans offered by HostBizUa are costly than the average market price. You can pay for these plans on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, and biennial basis. The company only accepts USD and UAH (Ukrainian hryvnia) as payment currencies. HostBizUa accepts different types of payment modes including bank transfer, credit cards (Visa, MasterCard) together with other online methods including PayCash, Privat24, WebMoney, and Yandex.Money.
HostBizUa offers a thirty-day money-back guarantee to help its clients assess its service level.
The customer support helpdesk is available 24/7 but can be reached through phone and an online form. There is also a support section through which you can send inquiries but you need to register first. I tried their online form but didn’t receive any reply.
HostBizUa offers a Help section, a FAQ section both of which boast of several useful posts and tutorials neatly distributed into different categories. There is also a download center from where user manuals, software etc can be downloaded.
However, the absence of live chat, especially when the company emphasizes on offering round-the-clock service, is a downer for me.
