Romanian website hosting company Spatiul Ro was founded in 2007. It has its own data center and it hosts more than 20,000 domains.
The Spatiul Ro website is available in Romanian.
Features and Ease of Use
Spatiul Ro provides a good range of hosting services, including business plans, reseller hosting, and shared hosting. The shared hosting includes the following core features:
- 8% uptime guarantee
- Daily, weekly, and monthly backups
- Domain registration available
- Up to unlimited add-on domains
- Free SSL certificates
- Up to 25 GB SSD RAID
- Up to unlimited bandwidth
For beginner webmasters, all plans come with the popular cPanel control panel, the Softaculous auto-installer, and – although it’s not immediately apparent from the company’s website – you also the Weebly website building tool.
Advanced users get support for PHP versions 5 through 7, but (as confirmed with support) no other advanced programming languages. If you want SSH access, you’ll need to purchase a VPS plan.
Other value-added features include SEO Tools, daily R1Soft backups, AntiSpam, and LiteSpeed web servers. Also, the servers have SSD storage, which should mean disk read/write speeds up to ten times faster than regular HDD.
Spatial Ro owns its own data center, Data Center Ro, located in Iasi, Romania. It’s always good when a company owns its own servers and center since this generally means a faster response times to technical issues. The 99.8% uptime guarantee is below the industry average of 99.9%.
Pricing and Support
Special Ro’s hosting plans are well priced, especially considering the performance-enhancing features such as SSD storage and CloudLinux. The plans come with a free SSL certificate, but domain names cost extra.
You can select terms ranging from three months to three years at the checkout, and you can get a decent discount for purchasing a longer-term plan up front. You can also purchase AntiSpam Premium as an addon during the checkout process.
24/7 customer service can be contacted by email, phone, fax, or live chat. Each time I have spoken to a live chat operator, I have had my questions answered efficiently (if somewhat abruptly):
The good customer service is complemented by a small helpdesk section containing a selection of documents including tutorials.
