Pricing and Support
NetForChoice’s two shared plans are far apart in prices. The Economy plan seems to be the lowest but it has more customizable add-ons, making it more expensive than the Unlimited plan. Depending on the resources you want, these plans would be considered affordable.
Its VPS plans are affordable too, with a five-day refund period on the Linux plans and a one week refund period coupled with a free trial on the Windows plans.
Its billing cycles are monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual for the VPS plans, with discounts as you subscribe for longer periods of time. In contrast, the shared plans have yearly, biennial, and triennial billing cycles.
Payments can be made using seven different currencies, through billing methods like wire transfer, PayPal, credit/debit cards, AsiaPay, cheque/mail-in payment, and TDS.
NetForChoice provides support through phone, email, live chat, ticketing system, and a limited knowledge base.
