According to its Facebook page, Ukrainian company Vikhost was established in January 2017. It aims to provide customers with high-quality, reliable server solutions while letting them choose a location that is closest to their customers or other website visitors.
Offerings include virtual servers and dedicated servers, but not shared hosting or reseller hosting plans.
Features and Ease of Use
Vikhost focuses on virtual and dedicated server solutions. Its standard features include:
- cPanel control panel
- SSH access
- Linux and Windows operating systems
- IPv4 addresses
- 1 Gbps network connection
Virtual servers are equipped with up to 4GB RAM and SSD storage that is faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage. These servers use KVM virtualization technology and (along with dedicated servers) are available in five worldwide locations: Ukraine, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States.
One downside is that this vendor doesn’t do backups, so it’s your responsibility to ensure your data is safe.
Pricing and Support
Vikhost’s prices depend on your choices of server location, operating system, CPU, RAM, storage, and additional IP addresses. You can choose your billing cycle to be monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual, with no apparent discounts for longer commitments. There are no refunds.
Vikhost offers round-the-clock technical support via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. For self-support, the knowledge base is bare, but there are a blog and a set of just four frequently asked questions:
