The first impression: It's hosting for professionals
Hosting provider Activecloud seemed to our experts one of the most technologically advanced providers in the Russian hosting market. Even American hosters would envy the services offered. It doesn't make sense to do a detailed review here, you can check out more information on their website. Now for the hosting itself:
Activecloud specializes in cloud hosting and solutions for large projects, but they also provide quality virtual hosting and VPS. The advantages include a sizeable customer base, as well as a convenient and understandable website. As for disadvantages, usually these (large and established) providers have two problems: prices and technical support. At Activecloud we found only the first one to be a negative (see below about technical support). If we compare their prices with competitors, then they aren't so great, but you are paying for excellent quality.
Trial period - 10 days
In order to get a free 10 day trial period, you need to press a few buttons, and they will send you an e-mail with the test account data. Almost any price plan qualifies for the free trial period.
Registration - you need your data
In order to complete registration, it is necessary to enter your passport data and address. The email containing the new account data came in a few seconds, which is very, very good.
This provider offers three main types of payment: Cash in the office (it is difficult to say who does this anymore), through a bank or a bank card, and more than 30 types of electronic money. As a result, if you have money in any form, you can buy hosting from this company.
Control Panel - ISP Manager
Hosting management takes place in the traditional bundle: Billing (separately) + Control Panel (ISP). Our testers do not have any complaints, everything is convenient.
Technical support - works well
Technical support works according to the following principle: Financial and general organizational issues are solved through LiveChat online, and technical issues are resolved through correspondence in the control panel (with notifications of an e-mail response). During the testing we asked 3 questions, and answers came in - 17, 14, and 19 minutes. This is very fast for Russian providers.
Activecloud is definitely worth recommending for serious and large projects (servers and cloud hosting are among the best on the market). But for small projects you will have to make a compromise. If you have a smaller site, then look carefully at the pricing plans, and if they meet your needs, then definitely choose this company. The hosting and support are high quality.
Unfortunately, there is no information for this provider's pricing and plans. Search for it on their website.

I used the cloud services of this company for just over 7 months. During this time, the service was unavailable for more than 5 hours at least twice. I started with minor projects to test them out (the cloud hosting, which they promised was highly resistant to failures and downtime), before moving on serious projects. Unfortunately, advertising diverges from reality ... Without a written request they did not refund my money for the simple projects, and after the official request was sent, they just offered a discount for the next month. Normal hosting at affordable and attractive prices, but cloud hosting is obviously overpriced for the service.
