Pricing and Support
If you factor in the fact that Kalanda’s hosting solutions come with a considerably small number of features that have significant restrictions, then it is true to say that the vendor’s hosting services are expensive.
On its website, the hosting provider has listed the prices of its packages in euros. Kalanda does not offer any money-back guarantee and its uptime guarantee is not backed by a compensation plan.
Customers wishing to can contact this vendor’s support team can do so via telephone, email, fax, and ticketing system. While the vendor offers 24/7 customer support, its phone support is only available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CET with a lunch break of one hour in between. The vendor does not have a live chat on its website, and unfortunately, my email to this vendor’s support team went unanswered.
The most effective way to get a response from this firm’s support team is to pay them for premium support; the vendor allows its customers to fast-track their support tickets at a fee, and the fee is notably quite high. The Kalanda website has a limited knowledge base.
