Pricing and Support
Web Hosting Bingo offers great pricing on three shared hosting packages: Linux Web Hosting, Windows Web Hosting, and Affordable Web Hosting. The first two plans are competitively priced, and the ‘Affordable’ plan (as the name suggests) is very cheap. Although it’s cheap, it still comes with the main features that new or small website owners will require, with the most notable differences (compared to the two higher two plans) being bandwidth caps and the lack of a database.
Hosting plans can be bought on one, two and three-year terms, with the price being substantially reduced for longer-term commitments. To sweeten the deal, they also offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on all shared hosting plans, but not on the VPS or dedicated server plans.
Customer service is quite substantial, with 24/7 technical support being accessible via telephone, email and live chat. My only gripes are that the hours of operation are not clearly advertised, and I have been left waiting for a live chat operator even when they look like they’re online. When they do pick up, they are always helpful and efficient, and you always have the option of helping yourself via the significant resource center that has more than 400 help documents and a server status page.
