Ukrainian web host Bytes offers low-price plans with a free domain. I found it hard to locate this company within Ukraine, and equally hard to summon a pre-sales support response.


Overview

bytesua mainUkrainian web hosting provider Bytes’ Russian-language website describes the company as “changing the traditional concept of shared hosting.” What the website doesn’t tell us is where this provider’s offices or data centers are located. The telephone dialing code gives no clues since this seems to be a mobile telephone number.

Features and Ease of Use

Bytes offers five shared hosting plans, five KVM VPS plans, three colocation plans, and several dedicated server configurations. The shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • Uptime of 99.9% and above
  • ISPmanager control panel
  • 2 to 100 hosted sites
  • 150 MB to 50 GB SSD
  • 128 MB to 4,096 MB DDR4 RAM
  • Unlimited free traffic
  • 1 to 50 databases
  • PHP versions 5.2 to 7.1
  • SSH access
  • Daily backups

The hosting plans support some of the most popular CMS applications such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and MODX.

The VPS plans are managed via the Vesta control panel, and you can install your choice of operating system: CentOS, Debian, or Ubuntu. Root access gives you complete control of your hosting environment.

Bytes provides DDoS protection for its dedicated server configurations, which may be useful if you run a gaming or corporate site.

This company’s website mentions 99.98% and 99.99% uptime (respectively) for its VPS and dedicated server solutions. It uses SSD storage in RAID configuration for faster performance and greater reliability.

Pricing and Support

Bytes

Bytes’ shared hosting plans range from dirt cheap to competitively priced. You can pay for them in Ukrainian hryvnia by bank transfer on monthly or annual billing cycles, with a 10% discount for an annual subscription. You get a 10-day test period to try before you buy, and all plans but the starter plan provide a .com.ua domain for free.

Contact this company’s 24/7 technical support team by telephone, email, support ticket (registered customers only), or live chat (ditto). Unfortunately, my test ticket submission received no response.

Some self-support resources are available, but you have to be logged in to access them.

Two years of great service

Hello, I have been using BYTES's web hosting initially, but over some period when my project has grown, I moved to VPS. The support team helped me with the migration of my services very professionally. I am very satisfied and will continue to use their services and recommend them to others! Thanks guys!

  • 99.9% to 99.99% uptime
  • Free domain
  • 10-day test period

  • Couldn’t summon pre-sales support
  • Have to be logged in for self-support resources
