For a relatively new entrant to the hosting market, Bangladesh-based HostBuyBD is on the right track with its inexpensive hosting plans.


Overview

HostBuyBDAlthough Bangladesh-based HostBuyBD’s English-language website doesn’t say when the company was founded, its Facebook page suggests that it has been operational since 2017, and its website does say that its management team brings more than seven years of industry experience to the table.

Features and Ease of Use

According to its product pages, HostBuyBD offers nine shared hosting packages, six cloud hosting packages, several VPS packages (not all available in the cart), seven dedicated server packages, six WordPress hosting packages, and seven reseller hosting packages.

The “Affordable Web Hosting” packages provide you with:

  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • 500 MB to 20 GB space
  • 100 GB to unlimited bandwidth
  • cPanel control panel
  • Unlimited MySQL databases
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • RAID 10 SSD storage
  • Free SSL
  • Daily/weekly backups

HostBuyBD uses LiteSpeed Web Server for improved performance compared to Apache. And it provides the Softacoulous one-click installer that helps you install a plethora of popular apps such as WordPress (for blogging), OpenCart (for e-commerce), and phpBB (for bulletin boards).

While shared hosting packages come with a 99.99% uptime guarantee, and Windows VPS and storage servers assure 100% uptime, the terms & conditions page suggests that you’ll get an account credit if uptime falls below 99.9%. Unfortunately, I couldn’t clarify the apparent inconsistencies.

If you need help with website creation, you can call on this company’s website development services (for a fee). And if you’re looking to resell HostBuyBD’s hosting services, you’ll be interested in the private name servers.

Pricing and Support

HostBuyBD’s “Affordable Web Hosting” packages (their words) are dirt cheap. Available billing cycles are monthly and annual, and you can pay for plans in U.S. dollars or Bangladeshi taka by PayPal, mail-in payment, bKash, Rocket Pay, Skrill, Bitcoin, Payoneer, or Neteller.

Shared hosting, cloud hosting, and WordPress hosting packages come with a 15-day money-back guarantee that gives you two weeks to decide if this really is the right host for you.

HostBuyBD’s 24/7 customer support team can be contacted by telephone, a ticket system, email, live chat, or an online contact form. Unfortunately, I received no response when I tried the ticket system. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll find that the knowledge base is bare, so the blog may be a better bet (although it only has a few entries):
