With more than ten years' experience, REG.RU is one of the biggest hosting companies in Russia. It offers all kinds of hosting and web design solutions at highly competitive prices.



REG.RU is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

With more than 1.9 million customers worldwide, REG.RU is one of the largest (if not the largest) hosting companies in Russia. It was founded back in 2006, and it specializes in shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, cloud hosting, and domain registration.

Although this company serves customers all over the world, its website is available only in Russian.

Features and Ease of Use

REG.RU provides a wide range of shared hosting price plans for both Windows and Linux. The packages differ in a few respects (depending on your requirements), but they share some similarities such as:

  • Free SSL certificate (except for lowest budget plan)
  • SSD storage
  • Website builder
  • Regular backups
  • 99.7% uptime guarantee
  • DDoS protection
  • Unlimited bandwidth

All hosting plans come with the cPanel control panel that provides effortless control over all aspects of your website, including additional domain registration, database management, and statistics. The integrated Softaculous installer helps you install all the essential apps such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal with one click.

Pricing and Support

Linux hosting is available on Budget, Speed, and +Power plans, whereas Windows hosting offers a choice between Budget and Speed. The plans differ mainly in terms of their storage space.

Considering the size of the company, and the features it offers, REG.RU’s prices are pretty low compared with its competitors. There is no clear refund policy, but you can get a 14-day free trial. REG.RU accepts payments via PayPal, credit cards, or wire transfers.

The self-support knowledge base was a little hard to locate but was well worth it when I did.  It contains many useful tutorials (including video tutorials) and a comprehensive F.A.Q. section. Alternatively, you can summon one-to-one support via telephone, ticket, or live chat. Although the support ticket system isn’t as responsive as I would like, I have no complaints at all about the live chat channel via which I received an instant, informative, professional response:

Bottom line on REG.RU

Cheap prices, many inclusive features, and reliable service. What else do you want from your hosting provider? REG.RU meets all these requirements, and more. The only thing I’d like to see is a better-organized website available in additional languages (not just Russian). 

REG.RU might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”


  • Free SSL certificates
  • Responsive live chat
  • Windows and Linux support
  • Affordable prices


  • Poorly organized website
  • Website only available in Russian
