First impression: It's a reliable provider
The company Hosting Center is one of the leaders of Russian hosting, and today serves more than 200,000 customers, an impressive figure for Russian providers. Hosting Center's website is very ergonomic, and there is a lot of useful additional information that is conveniently placed. At the bottom of the site you can see the logos of large companies that use the services of this hoster. But there are serious issues with the price policy. Yes, hosting is reliable and the range of services is very wide, but taking into account the terrible support, the prices could be reduced.
Trial period - 30 days
HC.ru has one of the longest free trial periods on the market, at 30 days.
Registration is difficult
Registration takes many steps, requiring a lot of information. It will be difficult for some beginners.
Paying for hosting should be convenient for almost any user, because the majority of modern methods of payment are offered: electronic systems, terminals, non-cash payments, etc.
The control panel is cPanel, DirectAdmin, or panel of their own design
There are three control panels to choose from, with no difference in price, and the main differences are in the interface and functionality, as well as some options of pricing plans.
Technical support is terrible
Support is probably the weakest part of Hosting Center. It's basically impossible to communicate with support staff. When testing, our experts were stuck solving problems with them for a long time. Also note that there is a LiveChat, but it doesn't solve technical issues. The main dialogue goes through e-mail, and the responses come in a few hours, which is decent for Russian hosters.
Hosting from Hosting Center could definitely be called high quality, but the price and the support service might make you rethink this choice if you are looking for optimal solutions. If not, then for medium and large projects this provider is good.
Unfortunately, there is no information for this provider's pricing and plans. Search for it on their website.
