Core Solutions was founded in 2001 to provide web hosting and web development services, but it has focused on the web hosting aspect since 2005. It offers email, shared hosting, VPS hosting, virtual dedicated servers, server colocation, SSL certificates, and domain registration.
This host has a data center in Tallinn, Estonia, and its website is available in Estonian, Russian, and English.
Features and Ease of Use
The four shared hosting packages provide you with:
- Free SSL certificates
- Daily backups
- 5 GB, 25 GB, 100 GB, or 200 GB disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
Shared hosting plans are administered using the ISPmanager control panel. It’s not the best-designed control panel, but the sidebar makes it easy to access the settings you want to change. The control panel allows you to schedule Cron jobs, and SSH access is available on the three highest packages.
You also have access to the Softaculous one-click installer for several scripts. Use it to install WordPress, Joomla, or many more popular programs. As an alternative to a CMS-backed website, you can use the SitePro website builder to create a professional web presence via a drag-and-drop interface without having to be a web designer or developer.
If you are a developer, you’ll be interested to know that Core Solutions supports PHP, and the databases are MySQL. However, you’ll be disappointed not to see support for Python or other programming languages.
Core Solutions uses an anti-spam filter and antivirus protection to guard against trojans, viruses, spyware, and other threats. Your website will sit on super-fast SSD storage, and you can add extra resources such as disk space, MySQL databases, IP addresses, and more.
If shared hosting isn’t sufficient for your needs, you can choose a VPS, dedicated server, or colocation solution instead.
Pricing and Support
Core Solutions’ shared hosting packages can be bought on monthly, quarterly, semiannual, annual, biennial, and triennially billing cycles. The fees are affordable, and discounts are available on annual (and above) commitments. You can get out at any time with a refund of your remaining fees.
Customer support can be summoned by telephone or email, and you are assured a four-hour response time during office hours and an eight-hour response time outside those hours. Sure enough, my exploratory email was answered within four hours:
In addition to the one-to-one support, some self-support resources are available.
