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):
