BDWebs.com is a web-based service company based in Bangladesh with data centers in the Unitied States.

Uptime & Reliability
Quite reliable hosting
Uptime is advertised at 99.9%, which those not familiar with critical services sounds adequate, but the missing .1% is equal to a little over 87 hours per year. If this downtime was spaced throughout the year it might be acceptable, but no details of the downtime is offered on the website. This could be a deal-breaker for many customers.
With data centers in Provo, Utah, Las Vegas, Nevada and Buffalo, New York, BDWeb combines off-shore support with US-based operations, allowing American users to connect to services using the America infrastructure with proven reliability. Employing Versaweb cloud services and Softlayer, now an IBM product, BDWeb would seem to offer a fairly sound group of services at reasonable prices.
Nice array of quality features
BDWebs’ site offers an abundance on services, including web hosting, social media marketing, dedicated server allocation and DNS (Domain Name Service) ownership to name a few. BDWebs also advertises a “get started in 60 seconds” motto which could allay the fears of many professionals that need a hosting partnership, but may not be technical experts.
The company also offers “reseller” DNS and web-hosting, essentially enabling them to act as a wholesaler for clients who wish to offer DNS and web-hosting to downstream customers, but do not have the facilities to do so themselves. VPS (Virtual Private Server) service is also offered; this allows customers of any size to run their own operating systems, install programs, assign resources, and other administrative functions as if they had a physical server in their location without the costs and risks associated with hardware and datacenter operations.
Also offered is WHCMS, which is an all-in-one billing, client management and operations service; another feature that could benefit smaller businesses who lack the staff to perform these operations. Everyday services such as SMS, web design and SSL certificates are also offered.
24/7/365 tech support available
Support is offered as 24X7 and uses traditional phone support and ticketing, as well as live chat, Skype and email. BDWeb’s site states, “We also have a commitment to provide our customers with superior distinctive service that will differentiate us from the competition. Our support is 24/7/365.”
Prices in line with industry averages
Pricing on the BDWeb site is based on the Bangladesh taka, which is currently valued at $.013. Depending on the services, charges are billed monthly or annually. With hundreds, if not thousands, of similar businesses world-wide, competitive costs are critical to success in today’s market. That being said, prices are in line with other organizations I surveyed. As with many other companies, initial set-up is offered free of charge. BDWeb seems to market themselves to virtually all sized organizations, with bundled packages offered based on need, number of users and a number of other factors.
Well rounded hosting company
