From servers in St. Petersburg, SpaceWeb provides mainly Russian customers with low-cost web hosting, VPS/VDS, server rental, specialized hosting, and extras such as domains, emails, a website builder, and SSL. Its hosting services are feature-rich and secure, and its responsive support team is available via multiple channels including email, telephone, and live chat.
The SpaceWeb website is in Russian but is surprisingly easy for a native English speaker (me!) to navigate and compare hosting packages.
Features and Ease of Use
SpaceWeb’s hosting includes the following features:
- Control panel
- Unlimited domains and subdomains
- Free DNS manager
- Free and unlimited traffic
- MySQL 5.6
- PHP 7 and 5
- One-click installer
- AWStats statistics
- High-speed SSD storage
- POP3/SMTP/IMAP4 mail services
- Perl, Python, and Ruby support
- Antispam and antivirus for mail
Customers have three options for building their websites: the premium website builder, open-source web apps such as WordPress or Joomla, or scripting tools and programming languages such as PHP, Python, and Ruby on Rails. SpaceWeb’s technical support team can also help you migrate all your files, databases and emails over to its servers if you share your FTP and SSH details.
The basic SpaceWeb hosting account comes with ample SSD storage and a convenient control panel, so you can be creating and managing your website within minutes. Set up personalized emails and MySQL databases, backup your files, and secure your web resources using the Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate.
Pricing and Support
SpaceWeb provides some of the cheapest hosting packages in the Russian market. Customers can get discounts for annual hosting and domains, and enough time to try the services before you buy them (7 to 14 days, depending on the plan). You can also take SpaceWeb’s site builder for a test drive for a full 30 days.
Before you contact the company for one-to-one technical support, it’s worth checking out the FAQ and knowledge base pages for answers to simple questions about hosting issues, SSL, email, databases, backups, payments, and the control panel.
If you do need to seek assistance from the round-the-clock technical support team, you can call the company or choose the live chat option (like I did). Despite the conversation being conducted entirely in Russian, I did learn a little about the website migration service.
