Launched back in 1999, Radicenter is an Estonian provider that specializes in shared hosting and domain registration services. Today, it serves about 10,000 customers spread across Estonia, Finland, Germany, Spain, Latvia, and Lithuania. It has a well-designed website that’s available in both Estonian and English.
Features and Ease of Use
Although Radicenter’s product range is somewhat limited, it compensates for that by offering a wide range of features with its shared hosting packages. Whichever package you find more suitable for you, you’ll get these features and more:
- Daily backups
- Free SSL certificates
- SSD storage
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
All hosting packages come with unlimited bandwidth, FTP accounts, add-on domains, subdomains, alias domains, email accounts, and databases. Radicenter also gives you a generous amount of storage, considering its entry-level plan starts off with 150GB.
Additionally, installatron is available with all packages. This will allow you to easily install and manage all the necessary apps required for your website, such as WordPress, Magento, PrestaShop, and Drupal.
Radicenter gives you the use of a beginner-friendly website builder as well. This includes 170 ready-made templates for you to choose from and supports mobile-friendly designs suitable for different screen types. It even supports multiple languages, so you can build a multilingual website with it.
Pricing and Support
Radicenter offers three shared hosting plans: Starter, Business, and Business+. These plans vary mainly in disk space, performance, and email messages sent per hour. Radicenter’s overall prices can be considered around the market average; in fact, considering the amount of storage and bandwidth you’ll get, it’s actually pretty generous.
Once you subscribe, the clock starts ticking on a 30-day money-back guarantee period. You can make a payment either by credit card or PayPal.
On the downside, I was very disappointed with Radicenter’s customer support. First of all, the company’s knowledge base section is limited and rather disorganized, though there is a search function and it’s available in three languages (English, Finnish, and Estonian).
I also tried contacting customer support via email and a support ticket, but there was no response. There’s a phone line, but this isn’t a practical option if you’re located outside of Estonia. And even though server support is available 24/7, customer support is only available Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
