Infonet AS was established in Estonia in 1993. Its principal activity is building the high-speed Saturn optical network for the people of Tallinn, but it also offers telephony, television, and (most importantly here) hosting. Infonet’s website supports the Estonian and Russian languages.
Features and Ease of Use
Infonet offers three shared hosting and three VPS plans along with several server colocation plans. The three shared hosting plans provide you with:
- 1 to 10 hosted domains
- ISPManager control panel
- 5 GB to 15 GB disk space
- 100 GB to 300 GB data transfer volume
- 10 to unlimited email addresses
- 1 to 15 MySQL databases
- 10 to unlimited FTP users
- Perl, PHP 5, Zen Optimizer, SSI, and CGI support
- Cron jobs
- Daily backups
These plans use Greylisting to defend email users against spam, plus the usual email filter, virus protection, and autoresponder.
Virtual servers use the Virtuozzo container technology for maximum server productivity, and you get root access for complete control of your server.
Pricing and Support
Infonet’s shared hosting plans are competitively priced, but you have to navigate through a few web pages to be able to buy them. You can pay in euros via PayPal, credit card, internet banking, direct debit, or even in person at Infonet’s offices. The only billing period appears to be monthly.
There is no money-back guarantee as far as I can see, but you might be able to benefit from the Megabit loyalty program. You should be able to summon support by telephone, email, and even old-fashioned fax, but my exploratory emails elicited no responses. There are no publicly available self-support resources, as far as I can see.
