Estonian host Eurohost has its good points (such as low prices) and its bad points (such as a slightly dysfunctional website and poor pre-sales support). While the benefits probably don't outweigh the disadvantages for me, I leave it up to you to decide for yourself.

Overview

Eurohost

While Eurohost’s website doesn’t say when it was established, the copyright notice suggests that this Estonian company started (or stopped) operating in 2016. You can switch the website between the English and Russian languages, to see the offered services that include shared hosting, VPS, domain services, SSL certificates, and a few more things.

Features and Ease of Use

Eurohost offers four shared hosting packages (named Pico, Nano, Mega, and Giga) and three VPS packages, but you can’t purchase virtual servers directly from the website, so you have to contact the company — if you can — instead.

The shared hosting packages, which you can buy online, come with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 200 MB to 50 GB storage
  • 2 GB to 500 GB traffic
  • Unlimited websites
  • cPanel control panel
  • Unlimited databases
  • Unlimited emails
  • HTTP/2
  • Free spam filters and antivirus

Hosting packages provide Edge Side Includes (ESI) for enhanced availability and performance, and SPDY support for faster page loading. These inclusions are interesting because the first one is rarely mentioned on hosting websites, and the second one was deprecated by Google in 2016 (which is when Eurohost’s website is dated).

Two of the VPS packages include a free SSL certificate to secure your website. For e-commerce, you can use Eurohost’s Zendesk subscription to service your customers. And for a WordPress website, the WP-Rocket plugin will make your content load much faster.

Pricing and Support

Eurohost’s shared hosting packages are dirt cheap. You can pay for them in euros by bank transfer or PayPal, on monthly or annual billing cycles. However, yearly billing is only available with the Mega and Giga packages, which may be no bad thing because there is no money-back guarantee (as far as I can see) to get you out early if you’re not entirely happy.

Contact Eurohost’s customer support team by telephone, ticket, email, or online contact form, but bear in mind that my contact form submissions seemed to fall on deaf ears. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll be just as disappointed because the knowledge base is bare:

Bottom line on Eurohost

On this plus side, Eurohost’s hosting plans are pretty cheap. On the minus side, its knowledge base is bare, and I couldn’t summon a pre-sales support response.

Pros

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Dirt-cheap package pricing
  • Some unusual inclusions
  • Performance enhancements

Cons

  • Can’t buy virtual servers from the website
  • Poor pre-sales support

Eurohost could become your low-cost Estonian host.
