Ukrainian hosting provider HostBizUa has been providing quality hosting services to a diverse range of customers since its inception in 2004. It offers six Unix and Windows web hosting plans, VPS solutions, colocation services, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, and domains. According to its Russian-language website, the key advantages of this company’s hosting are uninterrupted power supplies, automatic backup systems, and high-performance, stable software.
Features and Ease of Use
HostBizUa offers six shared hosting packages (three each for Unix and Windows), five VPS packages, seven dedicated server packages, three colocation packages, and six reseller hosting packages. The FreeBSD/Linux Unix hosting packages come equipped with:
- 99.9% uptime warranty
- 200 MB to 3,000 MB disk space
- Unlimited traffic
- PHP 5.x
- Webalizer and AWstats
- SPAM filter
- File manager and password-protected directories
- WAP technology support
- Daily backups
- Cron jobs
- 24-hour monitoring
The Fantastico one-click installer helps you install a wide range of applications, from CMS systems to e-commerce carts, with no technical knowledge. Once your website is set up, you can secure it with an SSL certificate.
Pricing and Support
The Unix shared hosting plans are pricier than the average industry price, and you can pay for them in U.S. dollars or Ukrainian hryvnia (UAH) by bank transfer, credit card, PayCash, Privat24, WebMoney, or Yandex.Money. Billing cycles range from monthly to biennial, and there is a 30-day money-back guarantee that should make you feel better about making a commitment. You can also get a free domain with your hosting.
The 24/7 support helpdesk can be contacted via telephone, an online form, or a support section through which you can send inquiries after registering. Unfortunately, I received no reply to my form submission.
For self-support, HostBizUa’s website includes a documentation page, which is one of the most unattractive help sections I have ever seen.
