Dmitry Golubev – a socially active IT expert and humanist based in Latvia, founded Serveriem.LV in July 2010. This Latvian web hosting company offers shared hosting, virtual servers, DNS hosting, domain services (registration and transfer), and SSL certificates.

Overview

Serveriem.LV

Introduction

Serveriem.LV was established in 2010. You can get Linux shared hosting and Linux virtual servers along with domain registration and transfer, and SSL certificates from it. The company also offers free DNS hosting with web interface for every domain you buy from it. The website of Serveriem.LV supports two language versions – Latvian and English. However, its cart area supports the usual twenty-six languages (including English).

Features and Ease of Use

Serveriem.LV offers 8 shared Linux hosting plans and 8 Linux VPS plans based on Virtuozzo/OpenVZ platform. The Starter shared hosting plan is a free plan that lets you host your website (whose domain you’ve bought from Serveriem.LV) for free for as long as you like without any hidden agreements, ads, or service limitations (though I found you won’t get to use features like web statistics, MySQL, PgSQL, FTP users, SSH, Cron jobs, etc). If you’ve bought your domain elsewhere, you can transfer it to the company (for getting it hosted and managed by Serveriem.LV) to benefit from its free Starter hosting plan. With Serveriem.LV’s eight shared Linux hosting plans, you’ll get

  • 1-30 hosted domains
  • cPanel control panel
  • 100MB-25000MB HDD space
  • 10-unlimited email accounts
  • SSL certificates
  • Backup
  • Support for PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby, ionCube, Curl, FastCGI, etc.

All these plans come with SQLite, which is the world’s most-used database engine. This C-language library helps in the implementation of a self-contained, full-featured, and fast SQL database engine.

With the company’s Business Premium and higher service plans, you can get two paid add-ons (additional 5GB disk space and 10 additional domains). The five higher plans also provide you with SSH, Cron jobs, and FTP users. Thanks to the auto-installer Softaculous, these plans let you easily install and run popular scripts such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, MediaWiki, etc.

To improve static site performance, Serveriem.LV uses separate (cookie-free) domain for static content. This is similar to what most popular web services like YouTube Amazon, PayPal, etc. use to improve their page load time.

Serveriem.LV offers guaranteed 100% uptime SLA. In case it fails to achieve it, you’ll get a discount starting from the first minute of downtime and up to the full monthly fee in case your website is down for over an hour.

For guaranteed webpage availability in Latvia, the company uses online data synchronization between servers with hot-standby servers capable of taking over any minute in case any of the primary systems fail.

Pricing and Support

Shared hosting plans of Serveriem.LV are cheap. To make the payment in EUR, you can use PayPal or bank transfer. Available billing periods are monthly to annual. However, at the time of writing this review, none of the VPS plans were available for purchase.

Though the company doesn’t offer any money-back guarantee as far as I can see, its free hosting plan (for domains hosted by it – either bought directly or transferred to it) can be used to test its services.

Serveriem.LV offers customer support via email, support tickets, and a pre-sales contact form. I used their contact form to seek answers to a couple of questions though I received no reply.

Serveriem.LV

Though the company’s shared hosting plans page mentions help pages and video tutorials for all possible configuration cases, they could be available only for logged-in customers as I didn’t find them. Except for a couple of posts (none of which are recent) under its News section, Serveriem.LV doesn’t offer any other self-help tools. Though it has a blog, the posts are pretty generic and thus, of no use to those looking to get hosting-related help.

Bottom line on Serveriem.LV

If you need robust Latvian hosting backed by guaranteed 100% uptime SLA, you could give Serveriem.LV’s plans a try. But being unable to reach its customer support and non-availability of its VPS plans are big concerns for me.

Pros

  • 9+ years of industry experience
  • Guaranteed 100% uptime SLA
  • Cheap pricing
  • Free hosting (for domains it hosts)

Cons

  • Unreachable customer support
  • No buying option for VPS plans

To get robust Latvian shared hosting backed by guaranteed 100% uptime SLA, visit Serveriem.LV.
