Russian hosting provider AGHost has been offering SSD hosting with CloudLinux since 2010. Its prices are average, and so are its features.

Overview

AGHost

If you are in a hurry, and just want the bottom line: for the same price as AGHost you can get much better servers with 24/7 support with Hostinger, so why even bother?!

Russian hosting provider AGHost was founded in 2010 to offer convenient, reliable hosting. Its decent set of hosting services is sold from a simple website available only in Russian (unless translated by your browser).

Features and Ease of Use

AGHost

AGHost sells shared hosting, KVM virtual servers, and domain name registration. When you sign up for hosting, you get access to the following features:

  • Domain registration
  • Unlimited add-on domains
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates
  • Up to 20 GB disk space
  • Unlimited monthly traffic allowance

Although the vendor’s website presents a set of frequently selected servers, you generally configure your desired server resources using a simple on-screen slider that notches up increasing amounts of CPU power, storage, and so on.

Beginners benefit from a one-click installer that helps you install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and up to 400 other applications. To put this into perspective, many hosts provide only around 150 installation scripts. More advanced users (e.g., web developers) can switch between PHP versions and can benefit from SSH access.

Russian speakers will be pleased to see support for Russian in the DirectAdmin control panel. It is less clear (and I couldn’t get customer services to confirm) if the control panel is also available in English.

Pricing and Support

AGHost’s prices are okay compared with international providers, but I’ve seen cheaper Russian providers. At the lower end of the literal “sliding scale,” you can certainly get sufficient resources at an affordable monthly rate.

There is no money-back guarantee or free trial as far as I can see, but new customers can get a 20% discount on their first purchase. Although the base hosting plan requires you to purchase a domain name, it comes with an SSL certificate for free.

Technical support can be summoned between the hours of 8 am and 10 pm every day, whereas sales support is only available on weekdays. You can contact the company by telephone, ticket, or Skype, but I failed to summon any response via Skype. For self-support, there is a knowledge base containing about 40 articles:

Before you make a decision, we highly recommend you check out some alternative hosting companies, which we highly recommend.
