Russian provider Host-OK offers a range of SSD-based budget hosting packages. There are features aplenty, but customer support appears to be limited.

Overview

Host-OK

Host-OK is fine, but fine is not good enough. While Host-OK is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.

Russia-based Host-OK appears to have been founded in 2016. From its old-style website, it sells SSD hosting with a generous 30-day free trial on all plans.

Features and Ease of Use

Host-OK sells shared hosting, VPS and VDS, reseller hosting, and domain name registration. Its plans come as standard with the following core features:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Automatic daily backups
  • A free domain name (on upper tier plans)
  • Up to 20 add-on domains
  • A free SSL certificate
  • Up to 9 GB disk space
  • Unlimited monthly traffic

Host-OK offers several developer-friendly features. As well as the usual support for PHP (up to version 7), FTP access, and MySQL databases, you also get Python programming support and Cron jobs to schedule regular tasks. Beginners benefit from a landing page generator that helps them get started with minimal coding.

Hosting plans are compatible with CMS software such as Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla, plus popular e-commerce platforms like Magento, OpenCart, and osCommerce.

Although its uptime record is 99.95%, Host-OK’s industry-average 99.9% uptime guarantee is merely okay, and it’s unclear what credit you get in the event of any downtime.

Pricing and Support

All hosting plans come with a 30-day free trial. There is even a totally free base plan, but its resources are limited, and you don’t get a free domain. When you upgrade to one of the affordable paid plans, you get a free domain, unlimited MySQL databases, and a free SSL certificate, but you have to purchase a CDN separately (if you want one).

Hosting plans can be paid for on monthly or annual terms, with the longer terms affording you 3% to 10% discount depending on the package you pick.

Unless something has been lost in my browser’s translation (from Russian into English), the provided support is limited to a small F.A.Q. section and an online contact form that advises you to ask proper questions rather than making simple statements such as “Here?”, “Why don’t you answer?” or “My messages reach?”:

There is every possibility, of course, that registered customers will get more extensive support.

Bottom line on Host-OK

Host-OK is a budget brand with a satisfactory set of beginner- and developer-friendly features. You pay a low price for an apparently low level of customer service.
