Pricing and Support
X5X Hosting web hosting prices are somewhat affordable and are listed in U.S. dollars (as well as Russian rubles and euros). The solutions start with monthly contracts but annual subscriptions attract a 20% off for each plan purchased. You can also get a quote on additional resources like additional IP addresses, disk space, RAM, CPUs, and hosting location.
The hosting provider does not provide any refunds upon payment but it gives users a seven-day trial period to try its hosting services. That said, it does not seem to commit to an uptime guarantee policy.
Its 24/7 technical support staff can be reached by customers through telephone, email, and live chat. Additionally, customers have the option to report abuse by submitting an abuse complaint form. I experienced a swift response from this vendor’s support team to my email query, receiving an answer in merely ten minutes.
The knowledgebase is lacking and there are a few FAQs available on its website.
