Ukranian hosting provider Ho.ua has been meeting the needs of thousands of customers since 2005, with its free web hosting being particularly pertinent to starters taking their first steps into the web hosting world.
Ho.ua’s website can be switch between the Ukranian, Russian, and English languages, but not all pages are available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Host.ua’s free web hosting package lets you host one website in its 1 GB HDD storage. It includes unlimited traffic and is surprisingly free of adverts. You can optionally add ten extra domains.
Although no control panel is stated explicitly on this vendor’s website, I would guess that its hosting accounts are administered via the cPanel control panel that provides you with a database administrator, CMS app installer, and several scripting/programming languages. But I can’t be sure.
As an alternative to shared web hosting, and cheaper than dedicated rental servers, the VPS plans provide you with a separate software environment. You get root access complete control of your virtual server’s computing resources and configuration.
Some of HO.ua’s supported features are:
- Domain registration/transfer
- Unlimited traffic
- PHP, MySQL, CGI, SSI, Perl, Python
- MySQL database
- Secure FTP access
- Cron jobs
- One real IP address
Pricing and Support
The free hosting package affords you an opportunity to test the waters before upgrading to one of the two higher plans that come with SSD storage and a backup/recovery option. You can order hosting on terms from one month to one year, and pay for it using your credit card. You get six months for free when you transfer your domain to this host.
It looks like the only way to contact this company by filling out an online contact form, but this may only be a limitation for unregistered pre-sales prospective customers like me. Ho.ua’s home page encourages you to watch its tutorial video and read its user guide before even signing up for hosting:
