Relatively young provider 3v-hosting does dedicated servers and VPS packages with a choice of HDD or SSD storage, but it doesn't do shared hosting (as far as I can see) despite this being hinted at.

Overview

3v-hosting

Ukrainian web hosting company 3v-hosting was established in 2016. Its Russian- and English-language website advertises reseller hosting, colocation, virtual servers, and dedicated servers, along with DDoS protection and domain registration.

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.

Pricing and Support

3v-hosting’s plans are pricey, with its starting plan being almost double the industry average, but you can get a free domain (with a VPS or dedicated server) and 10% off the price of a dedicated server when you sign up for a year’s worth of service. The other option is to pay monthly.

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:

Bottom line on 3v-hosting

3v-hosting could be worth a look if you’re on the lookout for a Ukrainian VPS. However, its plans are pricey, and I couldn’t summon any pre-sales support. There is no shared hosting, despite this being hinted at.

Pros

  • A choice of SSD VPS or HDD VPS
  • Free operating system installation (and re-installation)
  • 7-day money-back guarantee for reseller hosting
  • Multiple payment methods

Cons

  • No shared hosting
  • No pre-sales support response
  • Pricey plans
