Features and Ease of Use
Rosti.cz does not operate its own hosting infrastructure, and it instead relies on other vendors’ infrastructure. Some of the standard features you can expect from its hosting solutions are:
- Support for MySQL, PHP, Ruby, and other scripting languages
- Daily backups
- FTP databases
- MySQL databases
- SSH access
- PostgreSQL and MariaDB databases
- SSH, FTP, and SFTP access
This vendor does not offer the traditional shared hosting services or the usual VPS and dedicated server solutions. It’s hosting services are aimed at PHP, Python, Node.js, and Ruby software developers.
For PHP, it supports versions 5.6, 7.0, and 7.1 with no maximum execution time and no memory limit. The PHP hosting comes with 50 GB disk space and 4 GB of RAM and includes Apache. Python hosting plan allows both Python and Django 1.8 scripts, and this package supports several versions of Python including 2.7 and 3.4.
Both SQL and non-SQL databases are supported, including Redis, MariaDB/MySQL, and PostgreSQL. Rosti.cz performs daily backups on a separate dedicated server with a three-day retention period. Customers can choose to use either TLS or Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates.
Rosti.cz’s website doesn’t mention any uptime guarantee, and in fact, provides very little information about its infrastructure, maybe because it relies on other vendors’ data centers. It uses DigitalOcean’s servers located in Frankfurt, Germany, with its load balancer in Brno in the Czech Republic.
Pricing and Support
Rosti.cz’s hosting packages may be considered a little bit overpriced when you take into account the absence of some basic features. However, it’s important to note that these plans are specifically designed for web developers. The prices are shown in Czech koruna, and there is no mention of any money-back guarantee.
You can contact Rosti.cz via email or live chat, but not by telephone unless you pay for telephone support. The round-the-clock support assures rapid response times, which I can confirm since I received an email reply within an hour:
For self-support, the Rosti.cz website includes a detailed knowledge base.
