Main responsibilities - working with customers, questions and reviews moderation, monitoring hosting companies' rating accuracy. 'A thousand miles journey begins with one step' is her motto.
The first impression: Is ambiguous
The design and structure of the site Avahost is ambiguous as in, our experts didn't like it, but it's probably a matter of taste for each user. We just want to note that important features on the main page are visible (services, plans, domain searches, LiveChat, payment methods, etc.), but everything is a little confusing.
Trial period - Not available
You won't be able to test hosting from Avahost for free, because there is no free trial period. This is due to the fact that the company is based in America and prefers this method of engaging customers. Instead of the trial period, they offer a 60-day moneyback guarantee. If you decide within the first 60 days of purchase that it's not for you, your money will be refunded.
Registration - step by step and convenient
Registration takes several steps, in which you need to: choose a pricing plan, set your domain, frequency of payments and choose a country for a server location. For an additional fee, you can place links to your site in 1000 directories.
All methods of payment are standard: Webmoney, Yandex-money, RBK-Money, credit cards and bank transfer.
Control Panel - cPanel
Standard cPanel, without unnecessary add ons.
Technical support - competent but there is a long wait time
The Americans have left their mark here, the presence of LiveChat immediately catches our eye. Also there is a ticketing system, which is common with American hosting providers. We liked the availability of video lessons for each item from the FAQ. The drawbacks are the lack of a phone number, as well as a relatively long time answering the questions.
Avahost guarantees 99.9% uptime, which makes it even more comparable to American hosting providers. This company is well suited for most medium-sized Internet projects, and its main advantage is probably the ability to choose of your server location, which is useful for webmasters creating sites for a specific audience. Also - on some forums there are some complaints about the speed of work, which we couldn't confirm.
Unfortunately, there is no information for this provider's pricing and plans. Search for it on their website.
We conducted tests on the website avahost.hostings.info with its help, we conduct testing and monitoring. Plan: Starter (~ 2.6 USD per month)
Uptime: 99.93 % excellent 30 minutes of downtime per month
Fraudulent advertising: real prices are 20-25% higher than advertised.
10 dec. 2017
I liked this hosting, and overall my experiences are good. I have been using it for more than 1.5 years. Now we are opening a large site and we need a dedicated server, which they don't have. So we are looking for another host.
It's a very slow hosting provider. With an influx of visitors, my site is often down. The studio-site works badly, other designs in general are kind of clumsy. I chose another hoster and don't regret it
