Pricing and Support
ModernOne hosting solutions are somewhat expensive. And when you factor in the fact that customers have to pay for other add-on features such as OS platforms, cPanel control panel, SSL certificates, and managed backup services, the cost of these hosting plans can become extremely high. What’s more, the hosting plans only come with annual subscriptions. Their prices are listed in U.S. dollars and Malaysian ringgit.
All payments made to ModernOne are non-refundable. All the same, the hosting firm offers a 99.9% uptime network guarantee.
The ModernOne technical support team is available via telephone, email, and ticketing system. Although the vendor has a live chat, the link to the live chat is invalid. The technical support staff is listed as being available 24/7, though I sent them an email and only got a response just over 12 hours later.
ModernOne has a comprehensive knowledge base section with lots of articles and tutorials.
