HostOX is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

Clients can contact the HostOX 24/7 support team via telephone, live chat, ticketing system, or email. You can also follow or write to them on their social media channels, including Facebook and Twitter. That said, my attempt to chat with one of the reps via live chat was unsuccessful. And then, after opting for an email, I did not get a reply.
The HostOX website has a help center, but it has very few tutorials and articles.
