SvetHostingu.cz has been providing Czech hosting since 1997. The plans reportedly have an average uptime of 99.98% and SSD storage, however, the catch is an assumed low level of beginner-friendly features.

Overview

svethostingu-mineLaunched in 1997, SvetHostingu.cz is a long standing hosting company based in the Czech Republic. Its simple website is provided in Czech only.

Features and Ease of Use

SvetHostingu.cz sells multihosting plans, reseller plans, and shared hosting plans. The latter come with the following core features:

  • Availability is on average 99.98%
  • Domain registration available
  • Unlimited add-on domains
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Unlimited disk space
  • Unlimited data transfer

The servers run on SSD, which means you should experience website performance up to 300% faster than traditional HDD. Also, while there isn’t an uptime guarantee or SLA, SvetHostingu.cz does state an average uptime of 99.98%, which is above the industry average of 99.9%.

SvetHostingu.cz uses brand name servers and equipment such as Supermicro, Intel, and Samsung, to name a few, in RAID 1, 5, and 10 configurations to minimize the risk of data loss in the event of disk failure.

For ease of use, the plans come with support for all of the popular programs such as WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, PrestaShop, osCommerce, and so on. Unfortunately, if you’re a beginner, there’s no website building tool or one-click installer advertised on the site (I was unable to get confirmation from customer service, either), so although I can’t confirm for sure, the beginner-friendly features appear to be minimal.

The offering for experts is far more substantial. Plans come with all versions of PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, and both FTP and SFTP access. There are also Cron jobs, so you can schedule repetitive tasks. I’m surprised that there doesn’t appear to be support for other advanced coding languages, however, again, as I didn’t get confirmation from support, this is an assumption.

Pricing and Support

The plans are all pretty well priced, given the level of features and resources, plus you get a free SSL certificate with all plans (you still need to purchase a domain name). Plans are available in monthly terms only, so you won’t be able to take advantage of any long term discounts.

Unusually for a shared hosting provider, you cannot pay for the plans online. Instead, you must create an account and then an email invoice is sent to you. Once you pay via the email invoice, your hosting will be set up.

You can contact the team by phone and email on weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Ideally, I’d prefer to see 24/7 customer service, however, I do appreciate it’s not always possible and at least the open hours are clearly advertised.

I contacted the team by email and unfortunately, despite waiting two business days, I did not get a response. Luckily, there’s a substantial FAQ section to refer to while you wait.

Bottom line on SvetHostingu

SvetHostingu.cz offers a range of promotions including two months free on multi hosting plans and 25% discount codes, so there are certainly incentives to signing up. The plans appear to be skewed towards expert users, however, with SSD and a 99.98% average uptime, it’s a solid option.

Pros

  • Lots of promotions for signing up
  • 98% average uptime recorded
  • SSD storage and not HDD
  • Support for all versions of PHP

Cons

  • Customer service is only during standard business hours
  • Presumed low level of beginner-friendly features
