Features and Ease of Use
Stable.cz offers six shared hosting plans – 1 each for domain hosting and email hosting along with 3 plans (Mini, Standard, and Profi) to suit the needs of smaller to larger projects, and 1 Multihosting plan for website creators. It also offers several virtual managed and physical manager servers. With Mini, Standard, Profi, and Multihosting, you’ll get
- Free domain (.cz or .eu) for the first year (except Multihosting)
- 400MB-unlimited web space
- 20MB-unlimited database space
- 5-unlimited email inboxes
- Unlimited data transfer
- Free SSL certificate (Let’s Encrypt)
- Cron Jobs
- PHP 7.1, 5.6, 5.4, and 5.2
- 10-days backup availability
- Free customer backup recovery
The company gives you the option to pre-install one of the OpenSource applications from WordPress, KanbanBoard, Woocommerce and PrestaShop (the last two being useful for those seeking e-commerce features). You may even request the company to get other applications installed, if needed, and they would try to accommodate your request.
For the three higher plans, Stable.cz gives you a domain basket. It refers to a single email inbox that receives all messages, which include even those addressed to a non-existent mailbox on the domain. Thus, if someone directs an email to email@example.com but this mailbox doesn’t exist on the domain, the message will still be sent to your mailbox.
CAF – customer’s application first, is a unique feature offered by Stable.cz that allows all virtual server customers to instantly increase the hardware parameters of their virtual server based on sudden or anticipated or seasonal traffic spikes.
The company also offers you an option to add alias to your domain, which would be helpful if you’re creating a website that you want available in different languages.
Advanced customers of managed VPS plans can get limited SSH access on-demand, which would give them control over their hosting environment.
Pricing and Support
Shared hosting plans of the company are cheap. You can make the payment in CZK (Czech Koruna) by choosing from different billing periods made available – from monthly to biennial. The company offers a 10-20% discount on hosting services depending on your billing period. NGOs can get an additional 30% discount (on top of the already available discounts) on hosting services.
For its Mini, Email, Standard, and Profi plans, Stable.cz offers a 50% discount during the first billing period (via a discount code). For its Multihosting program, the company offers a free trial period of three months followed by a monthly payment (retrospectively) at no extra charge. For its physical managed servers, Stable.cz offers you the option of paying after two months’ use, while its VPS managed servers can be tried for free for three months.
You can reach Stable.cz’s customer support via live chat, phone, email, and support tickets. I used their email but didn’t get any reply to my queries.
