Login.by was the first Belarusian company to use CloudLinux for hosting and KVM for virtual servers. In 2018, it launched new modern servers — powered by the latest Xeon processors and equipped with super-fast SSD storage and DDR4 RAM — yet it kept the cost of hosting surprisingly the same.
Features and Ease of Use
Every hosting plan is Unix-based. Specifically, CloudLinux is used to isolate you from the effects of other hosted users, for improved stability and performance, and so that you get full use of your allocated resources.
Hosting plans come equipped with the user-friendly cPanel control panel (in Russian) for administering your emails, websites, and other web resources. It’s so popular that you’ll easily find documentation that tells you how to use this control panel.
Your hosting account also comes fully optimized for CMS software and other apps, including WordPress, Drupal, Magento, OpenCart, and phpBB.
Some of the other features of the hosting accounts are:
- Mail accounts
- FTP accounts
- Online file manager
- Domain name management
- MySQL database management
- Website access statistics
Although the 99.6% uptime SLA is lower than the industry average, your websites should still be available almost all the time. And since the servers are monitored 24/7, any issues should soon be corrected.
Pricing and Support
You can choose from a range of hosting tariffs and VPS servers to satisfy your needs, with discounts of 10% to 20% when you pay for six months or a year in advance. Pay for your package online via various convenient methods. Although there are no monetary refunds, you will be credited with additional months of hosting for any months in which the service falls below the SLA level.
You get seven days to test-drive the hosting services, and Login.by will transfer your website for free from your current host (if you have one).
Plans are activated instantly, and when you order a VPS package, you can choose from a number of add-ons such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, IP address, additional memory, and more.
This provider takes an individualized approach to support, and its online consultants will guide you through the different hosting plans to determine the right plan for you. Talk to them between 10 am and 7 pm. Alternatively, ticket support should provide you with a solution to any problem within two hours.
