Pricing and Support
Itechost’s Linux shared hosting packages are pricey, and you can pay for them using PayPal or your credit card in U.S. dollars, British pounds, euros, or Canadian dollars.
Monthly, semi-annual, and annual billing cycles are available, but (unusually) the pro-rata prices are higher for longer commitments. Although there is little or no incentive to sign up for a long stretch, you may nonetheless be comforted by the 30-day money-back guarantee that could get you out within the first month if anything goes wrong.
