Pricing and Support
Linux hosting plans offered by HostWeb are priced competitively. You can pay for them monthly, annually, and biennially. However, all billing cycles aren’t applicable for each plan, so you would have to check that out during the purchase process. Payment can be made through credit card and check/bank transfer, and USD is only accepted as the payment currency. You wouldn’t be able to purchase a web hosting package directly from the website. You would have to leave details about your order or call the telephone reservation center and a company representative will be in touch with you.
HostWeb doesn’t offer any money-back guarantee/trial period.
You can contact the customer support helpdesk of HostWeb via phone, email, and an online contact form. However, the technical support team is available 24/7. I tried their online form but failed to receive any reply, which was a downer for me.
