Kiev-based Tech Lodge caters to the web hosting, VPS, and rental server needs of customers in Eastern Europe and elsewhere. The firm has premium hardware on colocation at different data centers to give it a global reach. Its website is in Ukrainian, English, and Russian.
Features and Ease of Use
Tech Lodge offers a free website transfer service to move your website files faster than you could do yourself via FTP or an online file manager, and with zero downtime. Just create a transfer request via the online ticket portal.
Once your files have been transferred, you can manage them using the supported control panels. cPanel is the primary admin panel for shared hosting customers, whereas VPS and dedicated rental server customers can use Plesk, VestaCP, ISPManager, or Brainy CP. All the panels are flexible and easy to use, and you should soon be able to carry out simple or complex tasks with little intervention from the support team.
Your panel also provides you with a one-click installer and a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate. The Softaculous installer makes short work of deploying 300+ web apps, and the SSL certificate (of course) secures your site. Other features available to hosted customers include:
- Domain registration
- Secure FTP
- Webmail account
- Online file manager
- MySQL or PostgreSQL
- AWStats/Webalizer statistics
All shared hosting plans include DDoS protection to secure you against cyberattacks. Uptime reliability means a lot to your business, so Tech Lodge uses the latest hosting hardware and fast network connections to provide you with one of the best performances in Eastern Europe and to assure you SLA-backed 99.9% uptime.
System administration is available upon request, to take the strain out of managing your servers and hardware. Tech Lodge can also provide you with a dedicated proxy service, can administer and maintain your servers, and can help you promote your website with SEO services.
