Russia-based MTW.ru was established in 1998, since when it has developed its own technologies for load-balancing and protecting against DDoS attacks to deliver more reliable hosting solutions.

Overview

MTW.ru-overview1Russian hosting provider MTW.ru was established in 1998. From data center facilities located in Moscow, this vendor provides web hosting solutions primarily to Russian businesses, but it also has a noteworthy number of customers in the United States, Ukraine, Turkey, and Belarus. The MTW.ru website is available only in Russian.

Features and Ease of Use

Features included in this vendor’s hosting packages are:

  • MySQL databases
  • DDoS protection
  • Firewall service
  • Free domain
  • Free SSL certificate
  • SEO optimization
  • Daily backups
  • Free traffic
  • Apache servers

MTW.ru owns and operates data centers with a capacity of up to 200 racks. Its data centers are connected to powerful dual Xeon Quad processors and use VLAN organization to ensure clients’ website traffic is protected and isolated. Each of the company’s servers has access to two IPv4 addresses and 16 IPv6 addresses. In addition, this vendor also offers free KVM over IP.

With more than 20 years of hosting experience, MTW.ru has been able to develop its own technologies – for HTTP load balancing and DDoS protection – to help it operate its mass hosting solutions. What’s more, customers get a choice of operating system including Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Windows.

MTW.ru performs daily backups and has an easy file retrieval protocol to use in the event of a data loss disaster. You also get free SSL certificates, including a DV certificate that allows encryption of a single domain, and an EV Certificate that is perfect for e-commerce websites.

Pricing and Support

MTW.ru’s hosting plans appear to be competitively priced (in Russian rubles) when compared with other Russian hosting vendors. You can choose between two billing cycles: monthly or annual subscriptions.

Customers who subscribe to MTW.ru’s virtual server solutions get a 10% discount for semi-annual payments and a 20% discount for an annual subscription. You also get a free domain, 30-day money-back guarantee, and a time-tested availability of 99%.

Customers can reach out to the support team by email or telephone, but not by live chat or ticketing system. Although support is stated as being 24/7, I couldn’t get a response to my email inquiry, but maybe they just didn’t see me as a real sales prospect (let alone an existing customer).

MTW.ru’s website includes a knowledge base, but it’s somewhat messy, and some of the links don’t work.

Спасибо

Размещаю сервер у них. Сервер стал греться. Не понял сначала почему. Позвонил им, немного поругался. Но ребята повели себя профессионально. Прислали мне доступ в их систему мониторинга охлаждения, что с температурой все ок. Бесплатно посмотрели мои вентиляторы на сервере, оказалось, они не работают. Бесплатно поставили свои. Спасибо Владимиру.

Bottom line on MTW.ru

MTW.ru has been growing its hosting capacity for over two decades to handle websites of any size. Today, this Russian hosting provider has the infrastructure, expertise, and experience to manage even the most complex websites. The only downside (for me) was the lack of response from customer services.

Pros

  • Innovative home-grown hosting technologies
  • Daily automatic backups with an easy file retrieval protocol
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Time-tested 99% network uptime guarantee

Cons

  • An apparently unresponsive support team
  • No live chat or ticketing system
