Pricing and Support
Each of the InfoBoxCloud service pages includes a “Calculate the Cost” button, which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be working. To give this apparently well-established company the benefit of the doubt, I checked their prices on some third-party websites where the prices seemed to be in line with – if not a little lower than – similar hosts.
Their customer service provision is good, and they were quick to respond to my request(s). The 24/7/365 support can be accessed by telephone and ticket, and they also have a large help center on the web plus lots of social media channels.
