Slovak company StuffNET seems to be an ISP (and even an internet TV provider) that also does hosting. No prices are given, and you can't purchase hosting plans online.

Overview

StuffNET

Slovak company StuffNET can trace its brand back to 2006, but it has been operating as StuffNET sro since 2013. It provides a range of internet services as an ISP, television service provider, and web host.

Features and Ease of Use

StuffNET has the latest Dell servers connected to redundant power to ensure your hosting services never go offline. When you sign up for StuffNET’s standard web hosting plan, you get access to these features:

  • Add-on domains
  • Apache, MySQL, PHP
  • File Transfer Protocol Secure (FTPS) and Secure Copy Program (SCP)
  • SMTP, POP3, IMAP
  • Antispam and antivirus
  • Online file manager

If shared hosting is insufficient for your needs, you can scale up to StuffNET’s VPS hosting. You get an optimized Linux environment for your website and mission-critical apps at a price that’s cheaper than a full dedicated rental server. If you intend to run cross-platform apps, you might benefit from a cloud hosting plan.

Pricing and Support

At this point, you’ll want to ask the inevitable questions, “How much does hosting cost?” and “How can I place an order?” Unfortunately, StuffNET’s website does nothing to help answer these questions. No hosting prices are provided, and you can’t purchase a plan online.

To learn more, you’ll have to contact the company by calling or by filling out the online contact form:

In terms of support, while the support specialists should be able to help you with installation and server administration issues, the only self-support resources are two downloadable PDFs for setting up email with Thunderbird or Outlook 2010. These are more relevant to internet service customers than hosted users, and they’re a little bit “retro”.

Bottom line on StuffNET

I remember the days when internet services providers and web hosts were one-and-the-same, such as the U.K.’s British Telecom. StuffNET seems to be this kind of company, which might appeal to residential and small business users who want to get hooked up to the internet, take a TV service, and host a modest website all with one company. Having said this, the support for cloud hosting and Jabber communications suggests some degree of corporate focus.

Pros

  • A decent set of hosting features
  • Instant activation (but not instant purchase) of cloud, VPS, and web hosting
  • All-in-one provider of internet service, web hosting, and even television
  • No contractual requirements

Cons

  • Can’t purchase hosting online
  • Poor pre-sales support

Visit StuffNET for lots of Slovak internet stuff.
