If you're looking for VDS hosting in a Moscow data center at bargain basement prices, and if you're happy with limited support options, you should take the time to look at Time-Host.

Overview

Time-Host

Time-Host is a Russia-based business that owns its own servers. According to its Russian-language website, this host has hundreds of customers, and it primarily sells Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) packages.

Features and Ease of Use

Time-Host’s VDS plans provide a choice of SSD or HDD storage as well as KVM and OpenVZ virtualization. These plans also include the following features:

  • 100% uptime commitment
  • DDoS protection
  • A choice of Linux operating systems
  • Unlimited traffic per month

Time-Host owns its own servers in Moscow’s MAROSNET data center. This is relatively rare, but it means that the company should be quicker than a reseller would be to respond to technical issues. It’s therefore surprising that Time-Host doesn’t offer an uptime guarantee, although it does commit to 100% uptime in its terms and conditions.

All of the servers offer a choice of (Linux) operating systems: CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, or openSUSE.  The required operating system will be installed for you automatically when your account is activated, so that’s one less thing for you to worry about.

Depending on you’re budget, your VDS can be fitted with more-expensive super-fast SDD storage or cheaper traditional HDD disks.

Pricing and Support

Time-Host’s prices are very low, and you can get a VDS package for a lower price than some other providers charge for simple shared hosting. However, you still need to factor in the extra costs of a domain name, SSL certificate, and CDN (if required).

You can sign up on one-month, six-month, or twelve-month terms with discounts of up 20% when you choose a longer term. There’s no money-back period or free trial, but this is not so unusual for dedicated services, and – in any case – the prices are so low that it isn’t worth worrying too much about the commitment risk.

Unless you’re more attentive than I am, you won’t find any help documents, tutorials, a phone number, or even live chat on Time-Host’s website. So you’ll have to be content making contact by email, unless (like me) you receive no response. Support hours are advertised as being between 9 am and 6 pm, and there is a 24-hour response policy, but I don’t know what this means in practice. Of course, the support situation might turn out to be much better when you become a signed-up customer.
