Naunet has been in business since 2005. Customer service is slow, and there is no uptime guarantee, but the hosting plans do support plenty of advanced-level features at a reasonable price.

Overview

Naunet

Naunet SP has been in business since 2005 and has a mission to create new products for work, leisure, and entertainment industries. This Russian provider advertises itself as a “one-stop shop” for integrated internet solutions. It sells domain registration and website hosting from its Russian language website.

Features and Ease of Use

Naunet is a full service hosting company selling shared hosting plans that come with the following core features:

  • Daily backups, retained for 7 days
  • Domain registration available
  • Up to ten add-on domains
  • SSL certificates available
  • Up to 10 GB disk space
  • Unlimited traffic per month

Beginners can benefit from the Fantastico one-click installer (either the Standard or Full version, depending on your package). You can also easily install various software packages such as osCommerce, Drupal or Zen Cart.

More advanced customers will find excellent support for advanced scripting languages including Python, Ruby, and the “old school” Perl and CGI. You also get Cron jobs and SSH access, plus the usual hosting features such as phpMyAdmin, MySQL databases, FTP accounts, and support for PHP (older versions 4 and 5).

The hosting plans use the popular cPanel control panel or the in-house ‘Naunet’ control panel.

It’s somewhat surprising that there is no uptime guarantee or average uptime detailed on the provider’s website (and I couldn’t confirm otherwise with support).

Pricing and Support

Most of the plans are relatively well-priced, especially if you are primarily interested in advanced coding languages. There are various deals on domain names, depending on which plan or contract length you opt for, but you will need to purchase an SSL certificate.

The plans come on terms ranging from one month to one year, and the prices are lower for a longer term commitment. But the price doesn’t reduce if you buy the in-house control panel plan that is already by far the cheapest plan.

Customer service can be obtained via email and phone directed to the billing, support, or technical departments. I received no reply when I contacted the company by email to ask about any uptime guarantee. For self-support purposes, there are FAQs and some substantial manuals about the control panels.

Bottom line on Naunet

Naunet’s plans are affordable and include a good range of advanced-level features. However, I’m aware of some negative Facebook reviews that don’t seem to have been resolved despite being quite old. If you really want a Russian host with advanced features, I’d recommend starting with a one-month trial to see if this is the one for you.

Pros

  • Support for multiple advanced scripting languages
  • Fantastico one-click installer is included
  • Free domain registration available
  • Several FAQs and instruction manuals

Cons

  • Customer service didn’t respond
  • There are some negative Facebook reviews

Buy budget-friendly Russian hosting from Naunet!
