Pricing and Support
When it comes to pricing in the general market, Windows plans are usually more expensive than Linux plans. Meganet Hosting’s largest plans are no different in this regard. However, it offers the same prices for the first two plans in both categories.
All of its prices are cheap and definitely affordable. Subscription periods are annual, biennial, and triennial with discounts as you subscribe for longer periods of time. To make payments, you can use credit/debit cards on CCAvenue (for Indian clients only) and RazorPay. Payments can also be made using bank transfer.
For support, Meganet Hosting offers a live chat platform, ticketing system, phone number, and email address with which you can reach its staff. It also has a knowledge base. I sent an email, but I never got a reply.
