Hosting customers will already have basic protection against HTTP flood DDoS attacks. However, VPS, VDS, and dedicated server hosting customers can also upgrade the DDoS protection for an additional monthly fee. Options range from protecting one website on up to unlimited websites on one or two IP addresses and from 5Gbps to 50Gbps.
Pricing and support
Pricing for UH.ua’s shared hosting plans is very affordable, both compared to other Ukrainian web hosts and international providers. The entry-level Unix plan costs around the price of a cappuccino per month but comes with many top-level features such as the uptime and technical support guarantees. This equates to less than half the price of many other Ukraine-based hosts.
UH.ua shared hosting plans can be paid for in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, or triennial intervals (for Unix only) with discounts offered over the monthly rate – the longer the term, the higher the discount.
Customer support is handled by email and ticketing on a 24/7 basis. Telephone support is available from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. local Ukraine time. I reached out to support with a sales query and received a prompt reply that same day.
UH.ua offers a service level agreement that covers its uptime guarantees and technical support response time. The standard SLA includes a guaranteed uptime of 99.95% and a one-hour technical support response time during normal business hours. It has upgraded SLAs which raise the uptime guarantee to 99.99% and 99.999%, along with a 30 or 15 minute technical support response time guarantee.
