Features and Ease of Use
3v-hosting offers four VPS plans, three DDoS-protected plans, three reseller hosting solutions, one colocation plan (which only shows in the cart), and five dedicated servers. The VPS plans provide you with:
- 99.8% uptime guarantee
- 1 to 4 core vCPU
- 1 GB to 4 GB RAM
- 20 GB to 60 GB HDD/SSD
- 100 Мbps network connection
At an additional cost, you can get the cPanel control panel, an additional 1 GB RAM, an extra 5 GB storage, and more.
This host provides free installation for various operating systems (Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD), and you can choose between HDD or the far faster SSD storage. Thanks to root access, you get complete control of your server.

You can pay for plans in Ukrainian hryvnia, Russian rubles, or U.S. dollars via PayPal, credit/debit card, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, LiqPay, PrivatBank, Yandex.Money, WebMoney, or the SWIFT international payment system. Ukrainian customers and legal entities can also pay by bank transfer.
There are no refunds for virtual or dedicated servers, but shared and reseller hosting both come with a 7-day money-back guarantee. The problem, however, is that I couldn’t find any shared hosting plans.
3v-hosting’s 24/7 customer support team can be contacted by telephone, email, Skype, or an online contact form, but the support options depend on the package you pick. Support evidently doesn’t extend to pre-sales, because my exploratory email received no response. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll find that the knowledge base contains only four entries:
