Pricing and support
Pricing for Tu Hostin shared hosting plans is very affordable. The basic entry-level plan costs around 50% less than many international hosting providers, while the higher-tier plans come in closer to average for the data allowances. Compared to other Peruvian hosts, Tu Hostin’s prices fall in the middle of the range as prices in Peru vary from very cheap to significantly more expensive.
Customers opting for a web design and creation package will see prices for this service starting at a basic level that is very affordable and includes hosting and domain in the price. Compared to many website design packages found in the U.S., this package is around 33% of the cost of average. For more comprehensive design packages including e-commerce, the price rises to about triple the entry-level package, however this is still a bargain compared to prices in the U.S.
Customer support for Tu Hostin is available via telephone, email, and live chat. Support is listed as being available 24 hours a day, however I sent an email query to support but did not hear back from them.
