When you first visit its website, you might think that Thinking Bit is only a Cloud Accounting company. But scrolling down the page reveals details of its self-proclaimed "Best Web Hosting in Bangladesh." Personally, I think it would be better if you could actually purchase the plans or contact the company.

Overview

Thinking Bit

Thinking Bit is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

Bangladesh-based Thinking Bit has its headquarters in the nation’s capital, Dhaka. Although this company began in business in 2016, it was started by specialists with more than ten years’ industry experience. It provides Linux shared hosting services on 12 U.K. servers and 10 U.S. servers, plus domain registration.

The not-so-good news is that this host’s English-language website doesn’t work properly, so I encountered an HTTP 404 (not found) error page when trying to check domain availability and check out with a hosting plan.

Features and Ease of Use

Thinking Bit offers four Linux shared hosting plans: Economic Hosting, Deluxe Hosting, WordPress Freelancer, and WordPress Pro. These plans provide you with:

  • 5 GB to unlimited SSD storage
  • 5 to unlimited email accounts
  • One hosted domain

Although this provider’s website mentions the cPanel control panel, and it says that its U.K. and U.S. servers are optimized for customers’ needs (thus assuring 99.99% uptime), it otherwise lacks detail. Clicking on any of the “Order Now” buttons leads to an HTTP 404 (not found) error page, and clicking on any of the “Learn More” buttons leads (after a security warning) to a directory listing of one of this host’s web folders:

This doesn’t look good, to say the least, for a company that wants to host your website.

Pricing and Support

Thinking Bit

If you could actually purchase them (and it’s a big “if”), Thinking Bit’s hosting plans would be dirt cheap. I don’t know what billing cycles are available, if any, but I do know that you should be able to pay in Bangladeshi taka (BDT) by bank transfer, bKash, or a credit/debit card. There is no money-back guarantee, as far as I can see, but this may be the least of your worries when thinking about signing up with Thinking Bit.

While the company claims to provide 24/7/365 customer support by telephone, email, online contact form, or live chat, I found that the live chat was unavailable and my exploratory email went unanswered. I can’t say that I’m surprised.

Bottom line on Thinking Bit

If you’re looking for dirt cheap web hosting in Bangladesh, Thinking Bit’s plans could suit you just right, if you could purchase them or even contact the company. My feeling — and it’s only a hunch — is that Thinking Bit has given up on its web hosting to concentrate instead on its cloud accounting offering. Put simply, I think that you should think carefully before attempting to sign up with Thinking Bit.

Before you make a decision, we highly recommend you check out some alternative hosting companies, which we highly recommend.

Pros

  • Dirt cheap hosting plans
  • Optimized U.K. and U.S. servers
  • 99.99% uptime
  • Various payment methods

Cons

  • Cannot purchase hosting plans
  • Can’t contact customer support
