Brinkster Expert Review- From the Editors

Review

Pricing

Brinkster has a good assortment of plans that will work for any budget. I chose to invest in a shared Linux hosting plan that afforded me 200 gigabytes of space and 2,000 gigabytes of bandwidth. If paying two years in advance, the price of this plan is $4 a month, but if you’re like me and prefer to pay month-to month, the plan will cost you $7 a month, plus a $25 setup fee. Brinkster’s plans are a steal if you can afford to pre-pay a year or more, but about average otherwise.

Uptime

I use a premium uptime monitor to keep track of hosting accounts. Brinkster proved reliable in the uptime department, only going down for short bursts twice in a year for a network issue, and during scheduled maintenance.

Sales

You can get sales support from Brinkster by telephone, live chat and email. I attempted live chat. Even though Brinkster’s live chat software said I was first in line to get assistance, I waited more than 30 minutes for someone to help me before giving up and calling them by phone. Live chat is not so live! The sales team by phone, on the other hand, was helpful and quick to address my questions.

Help & Support

You can find Brinkster support by telephone, a trouble ticket system, live chat and Skype. I loved that Skype support was an option and found this to be the easiest way to get instant help. Live chat is tremendously slow, often taking 20 or more minutes to respond. Overall, support was good and the representatives helpful.

Setup

Signing up for an account with Brinkster is relatively straight-forward and simple. After filling out the appropriate forms and paying for my account, I received a welcome letter by email, plus an invoice for my payment. Couldn’t be simpler!

Reliability

I held an account with Brinkster for a period of one year. My server hardware was 100% reliable during my stay, but the network fluctuates some, as did the speed at which my website loaded. Some days my site would load in under a second and at other times it would spin and spin, never completely loading all of the images on the

Billing

I almost immediately had a question about my bill, giving me good reason to contact the billing department. I found billing to be courteous and helpful, though their limited hours of operation (7am-Noon on weekdays) can be bothersome and inconvenient.
