Hostlix.ru is fine, but fine is not good enough. While Hostlix.ru is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
Russian company AleksHost.ru launched Hostlix.ru as a project in 2009, and span it out into a separate provider in 2013. Today, Hostlix offers a range of solutions, including shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration.
The well-organized and nicely designed Hostlix website is only available in Russian.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostlix provides three shared hosting price plans. Although each plan has its own specifications and features, they have the following features in common:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- SSD storage
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Automatic daily backups
- Free domain
The shared hosting packages provide three possible control panels (cPanel, ISPManager, and DirectAdmin) so you can choose the one you’re used to. All three are easy to use and give you complete control over your hosted website.
A website builder lets you choose between various layouts and allows you to design your website using a drag-and-drop interface without any web design experience. Alternatively, you can use the one-click CMS installer to install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, and more.
Pricing and Support
The three shared hosting packages – Start, Premium, and Advanced – differ mainly in terms of web space. If you’re looking to host a large website, the Advanced plan’s unlimited storage would be most suitable. Prices are pretty reasonable for the resources provided.
You can pay using ROBOXchange or WebMoney, and you get a 10-day money-back guarantee that gives you just under two weeks to change your mind.
Contact the company via email, telephone, or support ticket. The response wasn’t as rapid as I would have liked, and it took the support team 48 hours to answer my emailed questions (albeit thoroughly and professionally):
To complement its one-to-one support, Hostflix provides a decent set of self-support resources including an FAQ knowledge base and a collection of video tutorials.
