In business since 2000, ColoCall has amassed many years of experience in providing server and hosting services from its base in Ukraine. It aims to provide the best balance between performance and price on the market.
It uses two data centers in Kiev, Ukraine to offer dedicated servers, colocation, VPS, VDS, and cloud virtual servers. ColoCall provides support in Ukrainian, Russian, and English.
Features and Ease of Use
ColoCall doesn’t have provisions for small businesses and personal websites. Its products are tailored towards high-end hosting needs. As such, you wouldn’t get the basics of hosting like an auto-installer.
However, it does allow customers to choose the exact resources they need, enabling them to have the perfect need to resource ratio, rather than having to go for a plan that provides more resources than they require.
On the VPS, customers will enjoy:
- Core, from 2.5 GHz or from 3.2 GHz
- Between 2GB to 256GB RAM
- SSD or HDD
You can choose the operating system of your choice, be it Linux, FreeBSD, or Windows.
It doesn’t offer backups, however, two copies of your data are stored for the sake of stability; that ensures that failure or loss of any other component doesn’t affect the performance of your website. Unfortunately, if you do need backups, you will have to purchase an additional server to save them.
The dedicated servers are not different in allowing customers to choose the features they want. Asides from that, ColoCall offers 26 plans for ready to use dedicated servers. Those already have the cores, RAM, and disk storage configured, but you get to choose the level of traffic you want.
Be aware that you will need technical knowledge to manage your servers as ColoCall doesn’t offer tools for beginners. For a small additional fee, though, you can get ISPmanager 5. That has its own advantages such as extensions for DDoS protection, CloudFlare, and Let’s Encrypt SSL.
Pricing and Support
The price of the ready to use dedicated server plans is cheaper than many similar offerings on the market. For the others (VPS, Dedicated), the ability to pick only what you need is a big plus because you can match your resources to your budget.
In addition, the hardware and software provided within those plans are reasonably priced, making them a worthwhile consideration for high-end web hosting needs.
ColoCall’s 24/7 customer support is available via numerous telephone numbers, Skype, and the contact form on the website. I contacted them through the form and received a reply in less than an hour.
