Russian web host NTX has been offering shared, VPS, and dedicated web hosting services since 2001. Its very affordable hosting plans come with many of the features that customers have come to expect from a hosting provider.

Overview

NTX

Russian web hosting provider NTX has been specializing in shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting plans for personal or business users since 2001. It has server options using Linux, Windows, and FreeBSD operating systems. Its very affordable plans come with many of the features that customers have come to expect from a hosting provider. NTX’s data center is located in Moscow, and its website is in Russian.

Features and Ease of Use

The features provided by NTX’s hosting plans are aimed at both personal and business users. For personal users, the plans provide Windows or Linux OS, 10 GB+ of storage, a free domain, and round-the-clock customer support. More advanced users can choose VPS or dedicated server plans that boost storage and bandwidth capacity significantly.

Hosting plans come with the following common features:

  • Free domain
  • MySQL databases
  • PHP support
  • 24/7 customer support
  • 10 GB+ of storage
  • Connected email addresses
  • Website builder
  • Windows and Linux servers

NTX has a 99.9% uptime rating, which is fairly standard but is a good sign nonetheless. At its data center, security is provided round-the-clock by cameras and on-site personnel. The server center’s data connection is via high-speed trunk channels that provide several gigabits-per-second of data flow thus ensuring fast loading times for your website(s).

Not-so-technical users might make good use of the pay-for website builder to create a basic website with ease. There is a free trial, so you can try it before you buy it.

All of the beginner hosting plans feature RAID technology, but you’ll need to opt for a more advanced plan if you want SSD storage. Along with an increase in storage speed and capacity, premium plans include increased bandwidth.

For the most taxing websites, virtual and dedicated servers are available that raise the processing capacity with up to 12-Core Intel Xeon processors and 64GB of RAM.

Pricing and support

NTX’s hosting prices are some of the cheapest I’ve seen, about half what you would expect to pay to other Russian and European providers, and the extremely competitive entry-level prices are aimed at users who prioritize price above everything else. Hosting plans can be paid for monthly, quarterly, annually, or biennially, and there are discounts for committing to longer terms.

Customer support is stated as 24/7 by telephone and email. While this may be true for paying customers, I found it not to be the case for me as a pre-sales prospective customer. To be fair, the sales office is only open during working hours on weekdays, but my exploratory email received no response at all. I would certainly suggest making sure you can contact this company before committing to one of its hosting plans. If you’d like to support yourself, you might get some good value from the NTX website’s pretty comprehensive knowledge base.

Bottom line on NTX

Russia-based NTX’s web hosting plans are some of the cheapest I’ve seen, but I was disappointed by the lack of response to my sales inquiry. Be sure to speak to this provider before committing to one of its otherwise attractively-priced hosting plans.

Pros

  • Very low-cost hosting options
  • Free domain with hosting plan
  • Website builder with all plans
  • Stable 99.9% uptime rating

Cons

  • Customer service found to be lacking
  • Outdated company website
