Features and Ease of Use
Whichever vendor website you visit, you will find a free hosting plan provided by iFastNet. Once you’ve registered for this free plan, the control panel provides several user-friendly features, including:

- Cloudflare CDN
- Site builder
- Softaculous installer
- SEO tools
- PHP version selector
The English-language website also advertises two pay-for hosting plans provided by iFastNet whereas the Russian-language website also advertises two pay-for hosting plans and three VDS plans provided by TimeWeb.
