Pricing and Support
While VerticHost’s website solutions include high-end features and server specs, the plans are quite expensively priced. Also, it is important to note that (at the time of writing) the shared plans seemed out of stock.
You can pay in euros, U.S. dollars, or Romanian leu. The plans are billed monthly and you can also choose quarterly, semi-annual, or annual subscriptions.
The performance of your website is maintained with a high uptime guarantee of 99.99%. That said, the vendor seems to lack a refund policy or a money-back guarantee.
To contact its support team, users can reach out to via telephone, email, or ticketing system. Unfortunately, there is no live chat. The technical support team is available 24/7 to help users easily solve their hosting-related issues. I sent a message to this vendor’s support team and they sent me a response in eight hours.
There are several FAQs on its website, and the knowledge base contains about 20 articles.
