The Republican Unitary Enterprise Beltelecom (RUE Beltelecom, or simply Beltelecom) is the Belarus national telecommunication company. This government-owned company was founded in Minsk in 1995 and it is supervised by the ministry of telecommunications.
In addition to voice and data services, Beltelecom also sells hosting solutions including shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers, which are housed in its state-of-the-art data centers in Minsk.
Beltelecom’s professional-looking website is available in the Belarusian, Russian, and English languages, with the Belarussian version containing the most detailed information about the provided services.
Features and Ease of Use
Beltelecom offers several price plans for shared hosting, dedicated server hosting, VPS, and Bitrix. Some of the shared hosting core features include:
- Daily backup for seven days
- Unlimited FTP access
- Unlimited traffic
- Default 100 MB mailbox size
The three shared hosting subscription levels — Hosting Start, Hosting 10, and Hosting 25 — differ in disk space, the number of mailboxes, and the number of MySQL databases. The Hosting Start package provides 2 GB disk space, 10 mailboxes, and 3 MySQL databases; the Hosting 10 subscription gives you 10 GB disk space, 20 mailboxes, and 10 MySQL databases; the Hosting 25 plan affords you 25 GB disk space, 50 mailboxes, and 30 MySQL databases.
For more webspace and higher resources, you could consider one of Beltelecom’s Linux virtual servers that come with a control panel, a dedicated IP address, an unlimited number of sites, and daily backups kept for six days. The VPS 30 and VPS 100 subscriptions differ in disk space (30 GB vs. 100 GB), RAM (2 GB vs. 8 GB), and CPU power (2,000 MHz vs. 8,000 MHz). You can get additional disk space and RAM at extra cost, and Windows VPS subscriptions are also available.
Dedicated servers are equipped with SSD storage.
Pricing and Support
Beltelecom’s shared hosting plans are cheap compared to other Belarusian providers, and you can save more money by signing up for a VPS on an annual rather than monthly basis. DDoS protection can be bought at extra cost.
You can contact this company’s customer service team via a Belarusian free hotline number, by phone during working hours, or by sending an email. Unfortunately, my exploratory email went unanswered.
There are no apparent publicly-available self-support resources, but there may be some that are subject to you signing up as a customer.
