We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.

For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.

CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.

Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.

Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.

Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.

Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.

Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.

DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.

Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.

ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.

The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.

Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.

Professional looking and user-friendly website. There is a big variety of hosting services for each category: Shared, VPS and Dedicated. The website has two versions: Russian and English. REG.ru offers Shared Linux and Windows hosting at a very low price: starting from $1.25 and $1.85 per month accordingly. Furthermore, they provide CMS (Joomla) and 1C Bitrix hosting. Very good hosting provider indeed. The prices are very fair and the range of different hosting packages is enormous. Excellent for both newbies and developers thanks to their superb support.

Nice design, user-friendly interface. The prices are quite low: Shared hosting from $1.30 and VPS from $7 per month. In addition, the company offers discounts for Shared hosting packages bought for more than 3 months. Moreover, they offer a free one year .ru, .рф, .msk.ru, .spb.ru, . su, .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info or .me domain registration, if total order amount is more than $16.15. Furthermore, the website transfer is absolutely free and they have their own control panel. Can be used by both beginners and proficient users.The control panel is quite comfortable and simple. Also, the company provides lots of free bonuses. Although the moneyback policy is vague and the support team is fairly slow, this hosting can be considered as a good, reliable and cheap one.

.masterhost is truly an old-timer in the hosting services market. The company was one of the first in this business, and accordingly it is now one of the leaders of the Russian hosting market. Any company would be envious of .masterhost's technology and equipment -they offer the newest and most up-to-date services. Honestly, the main disadvantage is the price. It is significantly more expensive than competitors. So, you can choose other hosters with identical service quality for a lower cost.

According to the latest data, hosting provider RBC is at the head of the Russian hosting market. And it was possible to achieve these results primarily due to their high-quality hosting. And when we talk about the quality of hosting, this one is at the highest level. The hosting center RBC doesnt' lose to the competition in any category, they are at the TOP - (except the support service - it could be better). As a result, our experts were unified in their decision - a quality but expensive provider.

We also recommend reading the terms of services carefully before purchasing a dedicated server or ordering colocation. Most likely, you will have to pay for equipment installation and set up separately. This is common practise of most hosting companies in Russia.

Ratings of hosting providers by site tasks
Hosting price

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.

For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.

CMS

CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.

Free trial

Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.

Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.

OS

OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.

Other

Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.

Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.

Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.

DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.

Technologies

Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.

ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.

Control panel

The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.

Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
