It has three data centers, in Russia and the Netherlands, and a Russian-language website that presents prices in Russian rubles.
Features and Ease of Use
FastFox offers four feature-packed shared hosting plans — Fox Start, Fox Hit, Fox Up, and Fox Pro — which sit on Supermicro servers with SSD storage. You get daily backups and a 99.96% uptime guarantee.
Other features you can look forward to are:
- One-click CMS installation
- cPanel and ISPmanager control panels
- PHP (5.4 – 7.3) and CGI support
- MySQL and MariaDB
- Free SSL and DDoS protection
- Email antispam and antivirus
- SSH access
- Cron jobs
- Zend Guard Loader and Zend Optimizer
The smallest plan provides 1 GB disk space, one hosted website, and one MySQL database, so it’s suitable for starters. At the other end of the prectrum, the largest plan provides 25 GB disk space, 25 hosted websites, and unlimited MySQL databases, so it’s more suitable for professionals creating a stronger web presence.
You can choose the popular cPanel or ISPmanager control panel. Each allows you to manage all aspects of your hosting easily, and the included one-click installer allows you to install a plethora of content management and other popular programs such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, MODx, and phpBB.
Pricing and Support
All plans apart from the starter package include a free domain, and all plans also include free SSL, DDoS protection, and website migration.
FastFox’s shared hosting prices are pretty low for the features and resources you get. You can pay by bank transfer, PayPal, credit/debit card, Yandex, Qiwi, and more, on monthly, semi-annual, or annual billing cycles. You get 14 days to try before you buy, and 30 days to change your mind once you’ve paid for your package.
For self-support, this host has published a Russian-language knowledge base with more than 400 entries, but its frequently asked questions are still under development. If you can’t find answers to your questions, you can contact the cusomer support team (with 24/7 technical support) via telephone, ticket, or live chat. A live chat agent told me that TeamViewer remote support is not available:
