Russian web hosting services provider RuskyHost was founded in 2004. Although its main website is in Russian, some of the pages can be translated into English, and you can also switch the displayed currency between USD, EUR, RUB, and UAH.
Features and Ease of Use
RuskyHost sells a wide range of hosting packages along with website design and advertising services. Its hosting plans include these core features:
- Automatic backups available
- Free domain registration with some plans
- Up to two add-on domains
- SSL certificates available for purchase
- Up to 20 GB disk space
- Unlimited monthly traffic
To build your website, you get to choose one of three website builders: the Parallels Web Presence Builder (with thousands of design options), the Plesk Sitebuilder (with 500+ templates), and the Constructor SiteStudio (with more than 520 templates).
At the other end of the expertise spectrum, developers not only get the usual MySQL, phpMyAdmin, and FTP, but also the Perl, Python, and PHP (up to version 5.4) programming languages.
When you purchase one of RuskyHost’s hosting plans, you can choose your server location: Russia (Moscow), the U.S.A., or Europe. If you’re not sure which one to pick, go for the one that’s closest to your customer base.
Pricing and Support
Prices range from very affordable to slightly overpriced, depending on the package you pick. You can get a free domain with some plans, but you always pay for an SSL certificate. Reduce the price of your plan by paying for a year upfront.
Support can be accessed via a variety of contact channels up to 11 pm each day, so it’s not quite the 24/7 support stated on the vendor’s website. For self-support, there is a surprisingly comprehensive knowledge base:
