Russia-based Gino (or Jino) has a data center in Moscow, from which it delivers customizable shared hosting plans that are managed via its custom control panel.

Overview

Gino

Everything about this host’s (translated) website suggests that its name is Gino (with a “G”), so I can only assume that for phonetic reasons its domain name is Jino.ru (with a “J”). It was founded in 1999, is recognized as a top-three hosting provider in Russia, and has served over 300,000 customers to date.

Gino provides website hosting, domain registration, cloud CMS hosting, VPS hosting, email hosting, and cloud storage. It uses its own patented control panel and offers a reward program for loyal customers.

This provider uses a data center in Moscow, and its Jino.ru website is in Russian.

Features and Ease of Use

Gino

Gino offers customizable web hosting solutions controlled via its own patented control panel.

This provider’s philosophy is that customers shouldn’t pay for data and services they don’t actually need, so you can pretty much pay-as-you-go. The preset hosting levels are Minimum, Standard, and Corporate, but each one is entirely customizable. The recommended Minimum package includes 100 GB of disk space, 100 FTP accounts, PHP support, 100 MySQL databases (totaling 25 GB), and hosting for 100 domains. Email can be added for a small additional fee.

Web hosting solutions include:

  • SSD storage
  • 24-hour technical support
  • Website migration
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate
  • Free 20 GB cloud storage

If you want CMS functionality without the hassle of installing and configuring the software, you can choose a dedicated CMS hosting plan. The Spectrum plan is a dedicated cloud for CMS applications including WordPress, Joomla, and 1C-Bitrix (a popular CMS in Russia).

All Gino customers – whether through hosting or domain registration – receive a free 20 GB cloud storage account that can be used to store and stare documents and other files just as you would with Google Drive or iCloud. File sizes are unlimited (up to your account availability), and there are handy cloud storage apps for iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Pricing and Support

Gino’s web hosting starts with the very affordable Minimum plan that can cost as little as a candy bar per month. The only problem is that this plan is pretty bare bones. The higher-spec Standard plan is closer to the cost of a cup of coffee shop coffee per month. Nevertheless, all plans are customizable, so you can commit to the minimum you need to meet your needs.

Although similar prices can be found with other local (Russian) providers, the customizations and customer support (discussed next) make Gino a compelling proposition.

So, speaking of customer support, Gino’s 24/7 support team can be contacted via the control panel or email. Telephone support is also available during working hours on weekdays via Russian telephone numbers (or internet call). I received an acceptable response less than 24 hours after sending an exploratory email.
